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.

Update May 22

The Julio Jones rumors are swirling for sure. The Chargers and the Patriots are making some noise as teams that are high on Jones. Especially the Patriots as reports are surfacing that they are considering making a move for the veteran.

However, the odds have yet to change and other teams to include the Ravens, 49ers and Lions are still considered the favorites to get Jones in a trade.

Julio Jones Contract

If the Falcons are going to successfully trade Jones they are going to get someone who is willing to accept his massive contract. According to spotrac, Jones is currently playing on a 3-year $66M deal with $64M of that guaranteed. Jones is going to get his money, regardless of where he plays in the future.

Julio Jones Trade Odds

Everyone is speculating that Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots will be the front runners to land Jones, but the odds disagree. Atlanta is still the favorite to keep him (-400), but other teams like the San Francisco 49ers (+250), Las Vegas Raiders (+333), and the Detroit Lions (+450) all have better odds than the Patriots (+550). The odds will fluctuate with the latest news and you can follow them here.

Heading to Nashville?

Like in the NBA, other players are trying to recruit Jones. Derrick Henry, the superstar running back of the Tennessee Titans has made it clear that his team needs to make a move.

If the Titans listen to King Henry, they are a solid bet right now at +1100 to deal for Jones. Jones is an asset for any team and that is certainly true for a Tennessee team that is off a successful season.

What’s It Going to Take?

Jones is off a sub-par year with just 51 catches, over 700 yards, and 3 scores. However, he did deal with a reoccurring hamstring issue that sidelined him most of the season. He is also 32-years-old and that could sway some teams away from trading for Jones. At a minimum, the Falcons will receive minimum draft picks, like in this trade scenario.

However, teams will have to wrestle with the salary cap (like the Chiefs) if they want to make a move. The Falcons will most likely request a No. 1 pick, but I wouldn’t count on that happening.

Who gets Julio?

The 49ers and the Falcons are interesting options, but it’s clear the Falcons will ship him for value. The 49ers already dumped draft picks in this year’s draft so it’s unlikely they do it for an older wideout. The Patriots, Chargers, and the Titans are also teams that will be in the mix. Belichick won’t dump major draft capital and the Titans will likely pass. That leaves two teams that will vie for Julio’s services, the Raiders, and the Colts. The Raiders are always looking for a big name to bring to Las Vegas and they have been linked to Jones before.

Gruden loves veteran wide receivers and a proven pass catcher would be an asset to the team. He will also help in the growth and development of young players like Henry Ruggs.  It won’t be easy but the one team that will trade for Julio Jones is the Las Vegas Raiders.
