Falcons Expecting Breakout Season From Julio Jones

The Atlanta Falcons have a new offensive coordinator in Dirk Koetter, replacing now Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey, and he will look to get the football in second-year receiver Julio Jones' hands. In his rookie season, Jones was just shy of 1,000 yards receiving despite missing three games in 2011.

Jones however, doesn't think he did that well last season.

"I don't think I did that great last year," Jones told reporters after practice. "I started coming on at the end because me and Matt stated getting our timing down and everything. I felt really good with the offense. It just carried over. I still feel great about everything we're doing. It's nothing different to me."

The Falcons have a very good No. 1 receiver in Roddy White, but a breakout season by Julio Jones has the potential to put their offense over the top.
