Julio Jones makes NFL history reaching career milestone
Throughout his eight seasons in the NFL, former Alabama WR Julio Jones has been one of the most productive pass-catchers in the pros.
On Sunday, Jones reached a career milestone: 10,000 receiving yards. He crossed into the five-digit career yardage on a 30-yard reception in the second quarter. Jones reached the milestone in what is only his 104th game. Not only is that an incredible career average of over 96 receiving yards per game, it’s also the earliest any NFL player has ever reached the mark.
Unfortunately for Jones, his special day did not come with the victory. The Atlanta Falcons fell 28-16 to the Cleveland Browns. Jones finished with seven catches for 107 yards and a touchdown on the day.
With that catch, Julio Jones has become the fastest payer in NFL history to reach 1️⃣0️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ receiving yards.
