CLEVELAND -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones became the fastest player in NFL history to 10,000 receiving yards with a 30-yard, second-quarter reception in Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Jones was drafted by the Falcons with the sixth overall pick in 2011, a selection made possible after general manager Thomas Dimitroff traded five draft picks to the Browns.
Jones is the second-leading receiver in Falcons history behind Roddy White, who accumulated 10,863 yards in 171 career games.
Jones brushed off the accomplishment as no big deal.
"I was out here trying to get the win today," said Jones, who finished with 107 receiving yards and now has 10,094 for his career. "I've been playing OK, but that's not anything that's in my head right now. We've got to find a way to win ball games.''
Quarterback Matt Ryan praised Jones' accomplishment.
"He is amazing,'' Ryan said. "He really is. He is a unique and special player. He is as talented as probably any player that has ever played. His skill-set is phenomenal. He works extremely hard and has been awesome to be around for his entire career.''
