Plenty of legends of put on an Atlanta Falcons uniform in the franchise's history. 

Guys like Deion Sanders, Julio Jones, Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, Roddy White and Michael Vick come to mind when thinking of the team's best all-time player. 

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has just one name in mind, though. 

Evans thinks Julio Jones, who now plays for Tampa Bay, is the "best" Atlanta Falcons player of all-time. 

Mike Evans on Julio Jones, with Atlanta in town Sunday: "In my opinion, he's the best Falcon in history. I'm happy he's on our side now though."

Julio Jones was a defense's worst nightmare in Atlanta. His connection with Matt Ryan is one of the best we've seen in decades. 

Jones isn't the player he once was, but he's getting older. It's understandable, in other words. 

The talented veteran has 883 catches for 13,406 yards and 61 touchdowns for his career. 

Jones and the Bucs will play his former team, the Falcons, this Sunday afternoon.
