The Falcons already have invested a lot in WR Julio Jones, trading five draft choices for the right to move up and select him in April's draft. On Thursday night, the team agreed to invest even more in the former Alabama star.

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, the team and Jones have agreed on a four-year, $16.2 million fully guaranteed contract. The Falcons first practice of the summer is on Friday.

Jones was the last Falcons rookie to remain unsigned, meaning the entire six-player class will be in camp when it opens.

The way we see it

Jones is expected to make an immediate impact on the Falcons offense, taking pressure off of WR Roddy White and RB Michael Turner and giving QB Matt Ryan another weapon down the field. Based on what the team traded to acquire him, it is expected the rookie will be a starter come Week One.
