6 teams named favorites for Julio Jones Trade
As if this week’s NFL Draft wasn’t causing enough buzz, we now have Julio Jones trading rumors to keep an eye on for the next few days.
Earlier today, NFL Network’s Ian Rapporteur tweeted that the Atlanta Falcons are receiving inquiries about the availability of the 32-year-old multi-year Pro Bowler.
The Falcons have received calls from teams inquiring about possible transactions for All-Pro WR Julio Jones, sources say. A swap couldn’t take place before June 1 for cap reasons, but the teams know Atlanta’s brutal cap situation and call. There will be no deal now, but later? Maybe ‘, wrote the reporter.
Jones has three more seasons on his current contract, including 2021. Even after a decade in the league, the first round of 2011 is still hugely productive, although he was limited to just nine games last year due to injuries.
According to Sports Line, the Baltimore Ravens are the current betting favorites to land Jones, if shared. The Raiders, Titans, Patriots, Eagles and Colts are also close to the top.
