One team that has had a front-row seat to the dominance of Julio Jones, is the Philadelphia Eagles. Julio has simply torched the Eagles almost every time the two teams have played.
This could factor into the Eagles wanting to make a trade with the Atlanta Falcons.
What else could factor into the Eagles being a potential destination? The Eagles have been lacking on the wide receiver front for years. They routinely have had practice squad players starting at receiver for them, Julio would definitely change that.
They just drafted DeVonte Smith in the first round of the NFL draft. Smith has great potential, but he is a smaller guy. Julio, much like with the Raiders, would give them that big body presence. As previously stated, Julio has shown Howie Roseman his dominance every time they have played.
Add to the fact that the Eagles have two or even possibly three first-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft, they most certainly have the means to entice Terry Fontenot.
With a new head coach, they could be looking to make a splash like Julio Jones. Jalen Hurts, and Eagles fans no doubt would love to see Julio Jones.
The Eagles’ current cap space is dire, if they wanted him this year, they would need to make major moves to afford him. 2022 would be a much more likely scenario, they are in the top half of the NFL in projected cap space.
The one downside of him joining the Eagles would be Julio not leaving the NFC, resulting in the Falcons having to play him more often.
