FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. (AP) - Julio Jones is willing to accept expectations that he’ll deliver _ on and off the field _ as a rookie receiver with the Atlanta Falcons.
Falcons Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White already has plans for Jones, the Alabama receiver drafted by Atlanta with the No. 6 overall pick on Thursday.
White posted a video welcome for Jones on Twitter on Friday. White says he can’t wait to “interact” with the rookie. White then noted he likes doughnuts on Fridays and hamburgers on Wednesdays.
That was White’s way of letting the rookie know he’ll be expected to deliver more than big catches.
Told of White’s food preferences, Jones says “OK, I have to write this down.”
