The Ravens have been the one team most heavily linked to the Atlanta Falcons superstar.
They have been looking for that big-time playmaker for a while now. They have not yet seen superstar play out of Marquise “Hollywood” Brown. They need to give Lamar Jackson more playmakers, and what better player in the NFL than Julio Jones.
Lamar Jackson would welcome Julio to the Ravens with open arms. Any quarterback would for that matter.
Julio would give them a slam dunk, playmaking wide receiver, and would provide some of the best mentorships their young receivers could ever have.
If Julio Jones were to be traded, you would want to see him go to some team that has super bowl aspirations. Whether this year or next, the Ravens certainly have the talent to do so, and Julio would make them even better.
Looking at their cap situation, they have just enough to afford Julio currently.
According to spotrac.com, the Ravens sit at 13th in the NFL with about $15.8 million in cap space. Julio would cost the team who traded for him, about that much.
The Ravens would have to make some moves to actually have enough because they still need to sign their draft picks, but they could certainly manage to do that. They are one of the best-run organizations in the NFL.
While it would be extremely sad to see him leave, the Ravens would be a top choice for the future hall of fame wide receiver.
