Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones got a big deal done today.
It’s a three-year extension with $66 million guaranteed, which on top of the two years he had remaining on his existing contract locks him up with the Falcons through 2023, according to ESPN.
The deal includes $64 million due at signing, and his guarantee is the biggest ever for a wide receiver.
Jones and the Falcons have been in constant negotiations for a new deal, and Jones seemed to be frustrated this week that the deal wasn’t done. Now the deal is done, and it’s one that should make him very happy.
