REPORT: Falcons Considering Trading WR Julio Jones

There could be another star WR trade brewing this year as Peter King of NBC Sports is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons are considering trading Julio Jones.

King reports the Falcons are putting the framework of a trade together that would send Jones elsewhere but the trade won’t go through until June 2.

The June 2nd date is significant because that’s when the Falcons can create $15.3 million in cap space for the 2021 season save the big dead cap hit for 2022.

King speculates that the Raiders, Patriots, Titans and Ravens are teams that might have an interest in trading for Jones.


The 32-year-old, Jones, has 3-years remaining on his deal which carry a $23 million dollar cap hit in 2021, and $19.2 million each in 2022 and 2023.
