They've got several other players to address with contract extensions including, but not limited to OT Jake Matthews, DT Grady Jarrett and RB Tevin Coleman...

And then you've got All-Pro DE Vic Beasley, and LBs Deion Jones and De’Vondre Campbell right behind that to get done...

Julio is just gonna have to learn to stop spending all his money on losing $150K diamond ear rings...

He knows about where he lost the ring. Dude, keep your mouth shut and learn how to scuba dive in the off season with a metal detector. Geez..

He also has no leverage on his contract. He signed a long term deal, 3 more years and he is old. Falcons have you by the balls.

Precisely.

Maybe he should have signed a shorter deal (see Kurt Cousins, Revis), trust in your ability, become a FA then get paid a zillion dollars.
