Four most sensical trade destinations for receiver Julio Jones
There is certainly a lot of anxiety among Atlanta Falcons fans because of the recent rumors that the franchise could possibly move Julio Jones.
Julio Jones has been a staple of the Atlanta Falcons for a decade. When outsiders think of the Falcons, they would most certainly think of Julio Jones or Matt Ryan. Not enough can be said about the future Hall of Famer.
One thing is certain about Julio Jones, he will always give you his best. He is one of the most humble superstars in the league, and the best wide receiver in the league. He is simply one of the best ever.
What team would not want him?
Certainly, there are injury concerns, however, he has shown that he can tough through injuries and still put up 1,400 yards. He did miss multiple games last year, but that was unusual for him in recent history.
While it is doubtful that Julio will be traded, it is certainly a possibility.
There have been rumors that they are looking to trade him to clear up cap space. It seems strange that this would be Terry Fontenot’s way to clear cap space when there are other ways. Like for example, restructuring Grady Jarrett’s contract, or better yet, extending him.
Certainly, Falcons fans want to see Julio Jones on the field for the Atlanta Falcons in 2021, especially now with the addition of Kyle Pitts. They would no doubt be a dynamic duo, or even trio if you add in Calvin Ridley.
If Julio is traded, definitely do not expect it to happen before June 1st. It certainly is not feasible for the Atlanta Falcons to do so.
Here are some teams to keep an eye out who could be interested in Julio Jones this year, or even in future years:
