Julio Jones could be available for trade


Recommended Posts

It depends on how the draft this year shakes out. If we come away with Wilson, OL at 23, RB at 34... I would give next years 2nd a hard look. Panthers or ours, it doesn't matter to me.

It's a win win - he's either going to pull coverage and let Davis/Mims go off, or he's going to be the Julio Jones we're used to. He is 32, so we'll probably only get 2 years out of him

Anyone who's trading for 2 is going for Wilson. It may not fit for his many haters but he by far and away the next best QB on the board. Even comparing him to Fields is genuinely insulting to him. 

 

Just let it sit there a minute.

Nah, Fields is a better prospect but for some reason in this trade scenario Atlanta also would rather draft Wilson.

He's still really good but he was hurt for most last season, and played through it. I'd do it for a 2nd (maybe + another pick).

Yeah can't imagine Falcons will get any higher than a 2nd, definitely not our early 2nd. He's fully guaranteed 15 mil for 2021, and gets 11 million in both 2022, 23 so ATL has very little leverage, and his play fell off a bit after he cashed out plus he's been a bit injury prone.

Just doesn't seem remotely close to the kind of move JD would make but taking big risks for added insurance for your young QB on a rookie deal isn't the worst idea.

We have Corey Davis.  We do not need julio jones.  

And we do not need anyone who is going to keep mims off the field.  Mims needs to take 100% of the snaps as the #2 wr for us to evaluate what we have in him.

Mims needs to earn his place. If he's good enough he'll play. Nothing should be handed to him as he has everything still to prove.

I'd take Julio in a heartbeat. Another huge target that Wilson would thrive with and would provide the short term help that the young QB may need as he develops. Would be a great move.

So sacrifice Mims development for a guy at the end of his career.  Brilliant!

Not sacrificing anything. If Mims is good enough he plays. If not he can get his head down and put the work in until he is. Not sure why people think he should be entitled a starting place because of where he was picked.

The same people who typically bitch about entitlement and the "old ways" of earning a job, are typically the same people that are first to take the opposite line of thinking. It's so weird.

JJ has been dealing with a bad foot for years.  At some point, he will turn into the 2020 version of AJ Green.

Pass...

Of course its a pass.  Hes not even being considered.  Mims is going to be a stud and he will get every snap at the #2 this year.

He is not right for the Jets, who are not in a very different  place than Atlanta. Why are they getting rid of him?  He hasn't practiced during the week in season in about 3 years because of foot, hamstring, leg injuries.  He is perpetually Questionable.  He is aging and slowing down and breaking down and there are hints that he will not play much longer  He is AJ Green/Calvin Johnson. He will either be washed up in 1-2 years or retired.  Strong pass.

Julio Jones didn't really hurt the development of Calvin Ridley or Russell Gage for that matter. 

Personally, I am all for having the "Oh man we have too many good WRs" problem. Once Mims is as good as Ridley, we can part ways with Julio. 

Regardless, we all know that JD isn't the type to make this type of trade so you have nothing to worry about.

His problem isn’t the foot it was his hamstring last year

It's limited him to an average of 1500 yards a year. Even last year he put up 771 yards in just 9 games. 
He has shown ZERO sign of slowing down on the field. It's definitely an injury risk which is why, along with his price tag, you can probably get him for pennies on the dollar.

Jones is a stud.  If Mac gets him that would be the greatest thing he could do for Wilson besides fixing this trash Oline

Or we could just go back to having the “no wide receivers” problem we had last year if Mims gets hurt again

except the jets also have davis, crowder and cole.

 

FYI, last year:

corey davis - 65 catches, 984 yards (15.1 avg.), 5 TDs

jamison crowder - 59 catches, 699 yards (11.8), 6 TDs

keelan cole - 55 catches, 642 yards (11.7), 5 TDs

 

julio jones - 51 catches, 771 yards (15.1), 3 TDs

 

this is no way compares the respective careers of the players.  julio was an elite WR and a potential HOFer.  but he's injury-prone, toward the end of his career, would cost a bit of draft capital and makes a lot of money (and probably would want some extension).

Doubt he'd ask for an extension he's got 3 years left getting 15 mil guaranteed this year, 11, and 11 the next 2 years. He's in the twilight of his career and he knows it, he's guaranteed this year but a risk of being a cap casualty next year, and finishing up your career with a rookie QB where the chance of making a SB is very low I'm not sure how motivated he'd be. I think there's way more cons than pros.

He’s 32 years old. He doesn’t fit this team right now. If we were in position to compete for Super Bowl I’d say yes. But Douglas still needs to build this team

That's not because he's 32. It's because he's talented.
