Falcons' Julio Jones, Grady Jarrett earn AP All-Pro honors 

The accolades continue to pile up for Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett.

After earning spots in the 2020 Pro Bowl, Jones and Jarrett were also selected to the Associated Press’ All-Pro second-team on Friday.


Jones has now been selected to the AP All-Pro team five times in his career. Following the 2015-16 seasons, Jones was a first-team selection. Jones earned second-team honors following the 2017-18 seasons.

The 2019 season was a record-breaking season for Jones in a number of ways. The seven-time Pro Bowler broke Jerry Rice’s record for the most receiving yards through a player's first nine seasons. He also became the fastest player in NFL history to reach 12,000 career receiving yards.

Jones finished the year with 99 receptions for 1,394 yards and six touchdowns. His 1,394 yards were the second-most by any receiver in the 2019 season.

Jarrett has quietly been one of the league's top interior defensive linemen for the last few seasons and is finally earning national recognition.

After signing a four-year extension this offseason, Jarrett finished the 2019 season with a career-best 7.5 sacks, 69 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 16 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles.
