Looking over this article: Watch: NFL insider names Julio Jones' most likely trade destinations
Key line: “According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the 49ers, Titans, Rams and Patriots are among the teams in the mix.” And yes, I ignore the recent Seahawks rumors. They are fine at receiver. If they do trade for Jones, and his high price tag, call them idiots.
So let’s look at the other possibilities?
The 49ers: Big win for Julio owners. He is head and shoulders above the receivers there. He’d instantly be their WR1.
Titans: Sorry, but even though AJ Brown is begging for him there, AJ is still the top dog in town.
Rams: Even worse. Jones will have to compete with Woods and Cupp for catches. Too crowded.
Patriots: Best opportunity for Jones. There isn’t a true WR1 to be seen until you reach…Philly?
