Jalen Ramsey knows the Rams missed out on a great opportunity.
Last week, it was reported that a “source with knowledge of the dynamics” says the Rams pulled out as contenders for acquiring Julio Jones. At the time, it was also reported that the Falcons were searching for a first-round pick in return for Jones, and the Rams do not have a first-round pick until 2024.
We found out today that it did not take that at all. Jones was sent to the Titans for a compensation package that includes a 2022 second-round pick. The Falcons will receive a 2022 second-round pick and 2023 fourth-rounder.
Jalen Ramsey took to Twitter and was pissed at the team over not making that deal.
“Imma have myself a good Sunday but this is all it took for a generational guy & we were “out” of the Julio sweepstakes!? Wow,” Ramsey wrote on Twitter. “we woulda been unstoppable forreal with all them weapons lol! Julio to the 615 fye tho!”
The Titans are also reportedly paying Jones’ full salary.
“The fact ATL got TN to take on Julio Jones’ full salary is huge and I’m a bit surprised. Good deal for all parties getting what they wanted (well, almost as ATL was swinging away for a first-rounder) but their expectations were always managed on that,” Jay Glazer wrote.
