    Well, “probably” doesn’t necessarily mean “will”. He missed 7 games last year so seems like our kind of guy.

    Julio Jones said "I'm outta there" when asked if he wants to be traded.
    Jones answered a question from Shannon Sharpe about whether he'd like to land in Dallas this season. It's not clear if Jones knew he was on live TV. Jones, 32, didn't name a preferred trade destination but reiterated he wants to win. It's the strongest indication yet that the Falcons great won't be on the team's Week 1 roster. New Falcons general manager Terry Fontenot has made no effort to shoot down chatter about a potential Jones trade. Meanwhile, Jones reportedly wants to play with Cam Newton in New England, though the Patriots are not among the nine teams with enough salary cap space to absorb Julio's guaranteed $15.3 million 2021 salary without moving money around. A blockbuster Julio trade in the coming weeks would send Calvin Ridley's and Kyle Pitts' average draft positions into orbit.

    It makes me nauseous how they go to great pains to make sure they only ever mention the Pats.

    We need to get him asap!!! That puts us in superbowl contention. Aj, julio, and henry. That will put the nfl on notice. He's worth a 1st round too for us since that 1st round will likely be 25 and higher!!

    NE loses Brady, miss the playoffs, have a decent offseason and the nutswingers are back out in full force
    Why Julio wants to play there with Newton is beyond me

    What there saying about us as a landing spot...

    Titans

    There is an obvious connection between these organizations now, with former Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith now head coach of the Falcons. He knows that Tennessee roster inside out and there may be some young, cheap players he covets who aren't exactly frontline guys for the Falcons right now. And the Titans lost a top tight end and their No. 2 receiver in an offseason that saw quite a few defections at multiple positions, frankly. Those players left by and large because the Titans didn't want to pay what the market would, so grabbing a $15M receiver at this stage of the game would surprise me. I'm not sure that is where they are as an organization right now, knowing AJ Brown is going to be making top five WR money soon enough. It's worth noting that Spotrac has them last in the NFL in receiver payroll for 2021, but seems to me that is kind of by design knowing Brown is going to be ready for a mega deal come January. They have close to $200M already committed to payroll and that might be what they are comfortable with.

    Maybe Atlanta plans to move Pitts to WR?

    I think they should move Pitts to Tennessee.

    We would probably draft o-line with pick anyway, Get Julio to restructure and falcons pay half the salary, then trade them a one! We just do not need the colts to get him, period!
