3 Perfect landing spots for receiver Julio Jones
2. The Green Bay Packers
The Packers lost the best receiver in football and are yet to make moves to address the loss. Julio is no longer in the best receiver discussion, however, paired with Aaron Rodgers Jones would have a huge bounceback season. In a weak NFC with one of the best five quarterbacks in football Jones would have a huge season and fit well in the Green Bay offense. The problem with this potential move is it limits Julio’s chances of getting a ring.
Rodgers’ playoff struggles have been well established and limits the ceiling of moving to Green Bay. Going to the Packers would be about Julio re-establishing himself as a primary weapon and putting together a great season. The Packers lack the roster to beat the Rams, Bucs, or 49ers in the postseason. This would be a move about rebuilding his value and teaming up with an all-time great quarterback in Aaron Rodgers.
The downside of this move apart from the postseason is the fact that Julio would often have to deal with a team’s first or second best corner. A task he has been up to every season of his career until last season when he was paired with Ryan Tannehill.
