Julio Jones is and has always been dominant, in case you didn't realize

That's the primary takeaway from The Ringer's excellent new piece on the receiver.

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

If someone compared Julio Jones to LeBron James based solely on their respective dominance, would you bat an eye? You shouldn't, and you won't after reading Robert Mays on Julio.

This is a phenomenal read from the new Bill Simmons site for many reasons, but as its core it tells you a little more about who Julio Jones is. He's a genuinely reserved, quiet person in the body of an NFL superstar, and he's more or less  been that way since high school. The Falcons also A) have absolutely no regrets about the trade, per Thomas Dimitroff and B) are just enjoying watching Julio quietly destroy everyone en route to the Hall of Fame career he appears to quietly (but very badly!) want. Please read the article to see what I mean.

I look forward to seeing what 2016 brings for Julio Jones, but as the article suggests, continued greatness is probably on the horizon. We'll take it.
