Could Julio Jones be on his way out of Atlanta?

Earlier this week, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler made headlines with a column that suggested Julio Jones could be on the trade block.

It should be noted that Fowler’s column focused on predictions from random NFL executives for the 2021 season. It was not saying that the Falcons were actually putting him on the trade block.

“I think there will be a lot of teams trying to swing trades — more sellers than buyers — because of the cap, and some big names will be available,” said an NFC exec. “I could see someone like that.”

In nine games played, Jones has 51 receptions for 771 yards and three touchdowns, but the nagging hamstring has put a damper on this 2020 season.
