Julio Jones has officially gone rogue on social media. On Monday afternoon, the former Alabama star receiver set his Twitter account to private amongst other things.
It’s not April Fools Day. Even if it was April 1, this is clearly not a joking matter.
Julio Jones just made his Twitter account private, unfollowed everyone from the Falcons organization, and deleted all Falcons pictures from his account except his profile pic.
Uh… that can't be good.

The news of Jones’ social media moves sent Falcons faithful into an all-out frenzy on Twitter.

The Atlanta Falcons made a bold trade for Jones during the 2011 NFL Draft. They traded all the way up to No. 6 overall, and he’s been a staple of the offense ever since.
In seven seasons with the team, Jones has accumulated 9,054 receiving yards and 43 touchdowns. Yes, he’s getting up there in age (29 years old), but he’s coming off a season in which he put up 1,444 yards and 3 touchdowns on 88 receptions.
Would the Falcons ever part with one of their most popular players in team history? Don’t count on it.
Julio Jones isn't going anywhere per source. Social media scrubbing has nothing to do Falcons who he is happy playing for, and plans to play his entire career for.

Jones needs to do Falcons fans a favor by clearing all this up once and for all, though.
