I love him. I really do. But this is going to wreck this franchise for several years to come with the cap! $61 mil guaranteed is going to make free agency a nightmare in the next couple of years. I can't see how they're going to pay Kamara at this rate.

By that time the cap will be higher, Jordan and Thomas will have restructured, and who knows who the quarterback will be, and what he'll be earning??

The alternative was going into the season with Tedd Ginn as your #1. Easy call

If 100 passes are thrown at him in any situation...man, double coverage he will haul in 85. Nobody has ever done that in the NFL. NOBODY. Not even close.

Falcons now have an "aging star". Do they dump money on him or dump him?

Oh, you know they are hating us. They are in a bad situation because Julio is not Jerry Rice or Fitzgerald. He is a fine tuned Maserati. Not built to play into his 30's like they are. They are going to have to start dialing him back where MT is still a young buck.

If Cook is as good as advertised and Butler continues to impress and stays healthy this offense could be scaaaary.

They are going to be tough this year. They have arguably the best receiving corps in the league. If they are going to make a run this is the year for them to do it. They canít pay all of them and keep the defense. I hope they do break the bank on Julio. It will screw them long term.
