Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is expected to be on the move in the next few weeks. The Atlanta Falcons, need to cut a ton of salary cap space, and the easiest way for them to do that would to move the star receiver in a trade. The Falcons would save $15.3 million if they move Julio Jones after June 1st.
Oddsmakers currently have the Patriots at the top of the list of potential suitors. According to SportsBetting.ag, the Patriots are currently favored to land the seven-time Pro Bowler.
New England Patriots: +150
Tennessee Titans: +200
Baltimore Ravens: +500
San Francisco 49ers: +600
Green Bay Packers: +750
Dallas Cowboys: +800
The Patriots could be the perfect trade partner for the Falcons, as they would certainly like to get Jones out of their conference. The Patriots also currently have a around $15 million in cap space and can afford to bring Jones on. This would give the Patriots an elite offensive weapon to go along with their rebuilt offense in the offseason. It has become very clear that Jones wants out of Atlanta.
