Farewell to the Falcons

The only thing that is for sure is that the Falcons are not an option for Jones. This is a shame because Jones is a legend in Atlanta and he will leave a long lasting legacy behind. It may be surprising to some, but Matt Ryan and Jones are the best QB/WR combo in the NFL.

However, it is clear that Jones wants out of Atlanta and according to reports he has selected two teams as his preferred destination. The New England Patriots and the Tennessee Titans.

If we judge it by player recruiting, the Titans have the edge.

Player Recruiting is Alive and Well

Once it was made public that Jones wanted out, Patriots and Titans players made a pitch to Jones. It all started with Titans RB Derrick Henry, but since then more players have chimed in.

Trent Brown started things for the Patriots and his tweet was “liked” by many current Patriots players who want to see Jones in New England.

However, no one is as aggressive on social media as Titans WR AJ Brown. Brown is sending plea after plea to Jones and as offered to change his number and let Julio “carry the load”.

Other teams are trying to recruit Jones, like the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Patriots and the Titans are the clear front runners.

Jones to the Patriots Is the Only Way

The Titans are pushing hard on social media to persuade Jones, but it is very unlikely. Recent reports indicate that Tennessee is a “long shot” to land Jones in a deal with Atlanta.

Enter Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

Belichick loves the veteran wide receiver and he will be the perfect addition to a revamped offense. Jones becomes a deep threat that will stretch the field  and open things up for the rest of the offense. Jones reportedly wants to play with the Pats and will welcome a trade to New England, which will make the deal easier to make. After Signing Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne, trading for Jones will be the icing on the cake.

Pats Have the Pieces

Although the Falcons still have nightmares from the Super Bowl against the Patriots, they will like what the Pats have to offer. The Patriots have the cap space to handle the contract, can afford to give up picks and have several big names that they could send to Atlanta to improve their team instantly. This includes players like N’Keal Harry, Jakobi Meyers, JC Jackson, Sony Michel and even Stephon Gilmore. This combination of talent and draft capitol will be too much for the Falcons to pass up.

Although the Titans, Browns, Colts, Raiders and 49ers are all rumored to be interested in Jones, when the dust settles, Jones will be in a member of the New England Patriots.
