WR - TEN
ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that new Titans WR Julio Jones is 100% healthy and is at the team's facility for minicamp.
Jones has avoided minicamp in recent years, but he's seemingly motivated after switching teams this past week. Still, his presence is probably more about learning Tennessee's playbook. Keeping him healthy heading into training camp (and ultimately Week 1) is the top priority.
The Atlanta Falcons have traded star WR Julio Jones and a 2023rd sixth-round pick to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for at a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023rd fourth-round pick. The move will save Atlanta $15.3 million in cap space.
In a blockbuster deal, the Titans acquired star wide receiver Julio Jones for draft picks. The deal should be finalized within the next 24-48 hours. Jones gives the Titans another massive weapon in the passing game, which includes star WR, AJ Brown. Julio is one of the most consistent receivers in football and has recorded over a 1,000 yards receiving in seven of his 10 seasons with Atlanta. Jones is currently 13th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings, but expect that number to fall with the move to a run-first Titans offense.
According to sources, the Atlanta Falcons have fielded calls from the Seattle Seahawks inquiring about a potential trade for star WR Julio Jones.
Russini also reports that Russell Wilson and Jones have spoken regarding the possibility of playing together in 2021. Jones thus far has been linked to every team in the NFC West besides the Cardinals, as well as the Titans, Ravens, and Patriots. Russini reported last week that a Jones trade could happen as soon as this upcoming week.
Dianna Russini of ESPN reports there is a sense around the league that Falcons WR Julio Jones could be traded as early as next week.
Russini adds that the team has discussed several trade offers for Jones, including an offer for a future first-round pick. It suddenly seems as if a trade surrounding the star wide receiver is more likely to occur than not. So far there have been links to the 49ers, Patriots, Titans, and Colts, among others.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Julio Jones requested a trade from the Falcons "a few months ago."
Rapoport adds the team agreed to listen to offers, but that this doesn't mean he'll get traded. Meanwhile, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Atlanta is asking for a first-round pick in return for Jones, but other teams from around the league don't believe they'll get that. This situation blew up on Monday morning because Shannon Sharpe of Undisputed called Jones live on television to ask him about the Cowboys. Jones said that he's "out of Atlanta" and that he "wants to win." This still doesn't mean a trade will definitely happening, but this provides some clarity on the fiasco that has been happening with him as of late.
