Since 2011, Julio Jones has been the center for the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL. As a wide receiver for the team, Jones has helped the Atlanta Falcons record some off-the-chart points. He currently holds the highest yard per game average of 95.3, which is the highest in NFL history.
The wide receiver Julio's performances have not gone unnoticed. He was named in the NFL All-Rookie Team in the 2011 season. He’s also been invited to five pro bowls to date which is quite the honor to hold.
Dating, Married, Or Gay?
Julio’s love life is shrouded in mystery. Over the years, he has been linked to several different women, but none have ever confirmed the dating relationship.
The first woman whom Julio linked was a singer Jasmine Villegas. Back in 2017, Jones was rumored to be dating the singer and reports also surfaced that the two had attended several basketball games together. But their reported relationship was never confirmed.
Following that, he got linked to Michelle Rodriguez. Similar to Jasmine, his reported relationship with Michelle was nothing more than just a rumor and likely faded out with time.
But the most surprising of the rumors was when he was linked to the Instagram model Kaylar Will. In 2018, rumors surfaced that Jones was expecting a baby with Will. It was quite the shock because Jones and Will have never been seen once together nor have they ever spoken about each other. But Will later shut down any pregnancy rumors in a secluded manner.
All this has led to many speculating whether Jones could be a gay man. His secretive or unwillingness to be in a relationship has brought up questions regarding his sexuality. But Jones, himself has remained mum about this topic.
Julio Jones has garnered the estimated net worth of $40 million as an American football wide receiver. In September 2019, Julio agreed to a three-year $66 million contract extension with the Falcons. He signed to be with the team until 2023 with an average annual salary of $22 million.
Julio started playing football well into his college days. As a wide receiver in his Junior days in college, Julio had a record of sixteen touchdowns and seventy-five passes. His professional career began when in 2011, he was selected as the 6th overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft by Atlanta Falcons.
The 2011 season was fruitful for him as he got named in the NFL All-Rookie Team. And for the next seven seasons, he went on to perform at the highest level, recording an average of 95.3 receiving yards per game- the highest in NFL history. Likewise, his performance has also helped him be invited for five pro bowls, an honor any NFL player would like to hold.
