Kirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports

Dominance proceeds Julio Jones no matter where he is.

The fifth-year veteran was invited to his third NFL Pro Bowl in 2015, after capping off a monster season. He set a franchise record with 136 catches for 1,871 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. Jones is the only wide out in NFL history to have at least 130 receptions and 1,800 yards in the same season.

The Atlanta Falcons superstar recorded two receptions for 26 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown catch from Seattle’s quarterback Russell Wilson in the first quarter.

Jones, 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, created separation and ran a post route to the back of the end zone. He brought in one of seven touchdown passes for Team Irving, earning in a 49-27 win.
