Julio Jones excited to work with Calvin Ridley: 'There's so much I can teach him'
The Atlanta Falcons made an interesting selection in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, choosing former Alabama WR Calvin Ridley.
That gives the Falcons two former Alabama stars, as Ridley will line up alongside WR Julio Jones this fall.
On Saturday, TMZ Sports caught up with Jones, and as you can see in the video below, he is excited to teach Ridley the ropes:
“I’m very excited. I’m very excited,” Jones said. “There’s so much I can teach him. He’s a raw talent. Very talented guy. But coming to the next level, it’s always good to have an older-head guy in there to help you. … He’s built by Bama, man.”
Jones is one of the best receivers in the NFL, so Ridley would be wise to learn as much as he can from the superstar. One thing is for sure, though — QB Matt Ryan is the happiest guy in Atlanta right about now.
