Julio Jones 'Already' Working Out With Matt Ryan, Roddy White, According To Report

And here we have the best possible news the Atlanta Falcons fan could wake up to, short of the ending of the NFL lockout*: rookie WR Julio Jones has been training with Matt Ryan and likely bookend Roddy Whiteaccording to a tweet by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter.

It's not entirely clear whether Jones will be able to participate in the team's punk rock minicamp, which was set to begin Tuesday at a shadowy location that's definitely not Falcons HQ in Flowery Branch. But the word "already" in Ledbetter's tweet should at least slightly reassure even the most skeptical Falcons fans (points at self and Braves & Birds) that the team may have selected the right guy.

* - Actually, this might be better then the lockout ending, from a competitive standpoint. Is every fanbase getting to hear about its first-round pick working out with veterans? If not, then the Falcons are coming out ahead here. In which case, lockout on, sirs.
