Ok it was an earring worth $150k but essentially that’s what happened. Let’s take a deep dive. (pun intended)
Per Brendan Keefe and Christopher Buchanan of WXIA 11 Alive, Jones hired a dive team to scour Lake Lanier for the valuable piece of jewelry after it fell into the water when he hit a boat wake.
First of all, what the hell is Julio Jones doing riding a jet ski less than a week before training camp? This is the $100 million, corner back destroying, play making, can only practice 2 days a week to keep him healthy mother fucker. And he’s riding a jet ski fast enough to get thrown off and lose an earring???
Julio please. – Chad Johnson (probably)
#1 – This is the last straw. The Falcons aren’t making it to the conference championship game and maybe not even the playoffs. Yes, they have a talented roster but that Super Bowl hangover is real and if your star WR is out fucking around the week of training camp that can’t be a good sign.
#2 – Julio must have some connections. Jet Skis aren’t allowed on Lake Lanier unless they were already grandfathered in. Julio – @dukeoesports. DMs are open.
#3 – People are giving him shit for hiring a dive team but to me, to pay $25k to potentially find $150k is a pretty decent investment. I’m guessing insurance won’t cover “lost on jet ski”
#4 – Chad Ocho Cinco Johnson is getting his second shout out in this blog. Why does Julio have a $150,000 earring? See below.
