Another day, another Julio Jones rumor, or should I say “rumor.”
However, one of the “rumors” that has circled around recently was made by NBC Boston reporter, Michael Holley, and simply put, it was awful.
Before you watch this, you need to know one thing, this statement or “rumor” is horrendously bad, and in all honesty, embarrassing.
There are rumors that get put out there that you can see is true, there are rumors that are a little harder to see is true, but then there is this:
Pretty ridiculous, isn’t it?
This statement regarding Julio Jones is simply hilarious. Any knowledgeable NFL fan would hear this and laugh, knowing how false it is.
What else is there to say, other than this guy should in all honesty be embarrassed with his awful take on Julio Jones.
First is his statement that the relationship between the Falcons and Julio Jones is “terrible.” Arthur Blank and Julio Jones have nothing but respect for one another, they always have and it is not hard to think that they always will.
Obviously, a new general manager and head coach have entered the picture for Julio and the Falcons, but what could either of them have done between the moment they got hired and the moment this statement was made?
Fun fact: Terry Fontenot’s kids’ favorite player is none other than Julio Jones, why would a dad want to make his kid’s favorite player angry? Obviously in another situation, this easily could happen, but with Julio Jones, there is no way.
Not to mention, when was the last time we have heard from Julio Jones? It has been so long, and usually, players who make enemies this quickly, are very outspoken people, with strong emotions. That sounds like the last thing from Julio. Julio is quiet and lets his play do the talking, he is not like Odell Beckham Jr., or Michael Thomas, who in the past could not keep their mouths shut.
After that, he claims that Julio wants to play with Cam Newton. What is there to say to that? All you can do is laugh.
Then Michael Holley says that Julio thinks Matt Ryan has lost a little “zing” on the ball. If Matt Ryan has lost a little “zing,” then what has Cam lost? A whole heck of a lot more than Ryan, to say the least.
Julio Jones is one of the smartest people in the league. It does not take a smart person to know that Matt Ryan is leagues above Cam Newton, why would Julio want to watch the ball sail ten yards over his head?
Not to mention it is pretty obvious that Cam Newton is not the future quarterback of the New England Patriots. There is a stronger claim to be made that Julio would want to play with the actual future for the Patriots at quarterback, Mac Jones.
Julio Jones went to Alabama, Mac Jones went to Alabama. That makes more sense than Cam Newton’s only connection with Julio, being that he grew up in Georgia, and played for the Falcons rival.
It is beyond doubt that any of this is true. In all honesty, it almost looks like he is making it up on the spot. It was an awkward and laughable claim to make.
Even if he did hear this from someone, one would think he would be smart enough to know that there is no way of that being true.
Sometimes things in life just make you laugh.
