Julio Jones Sets Falcons Franchise Record for 100-yd Receiving Games

Written by Adrian Beecher

Philadelphia, PA – Juilo Jone broke the Atlanta Falcons franchise record for career 100-yard receiving games on Thursday night, grabbing his 40th of the like.

His first career 100-yard receiving game came back in the third game of his career in 2011 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his rookie season, Jones tallied a total of five 100 yard receiving games.

He breaks the record previously held by Roddy White, who retired after the 2015 season with 11 years in the league. White finished his career with 10,863 yards. Jones is well on his way to beat that mark with 9,054 career receiving yards in just his first seven years in the league.

White remains the Falcons all-time receiving leader with yards and touchdowns (63). Jones trails White by 20 touchdowns, currently sitting with 43.
