Former Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (Julio Jones) asked the team to trade themselves in this off-season, and finally got what he wanted. When the trade request was first heard, Falcon owner Arthur Blank was very disappointed.
Jones said in an interview on Thursday: “I think what I care most about is that he expresses his willingness to be traded. As you know, we have been together for ten years, and I think this relationship is very good.”
“He is a Hall of Fame player. I am disappointed that he wants to think so. I’m not sure what the reason is. After all, I haven’t been able to communicate with him personally. I have tried it, but he is firm in his thinking and has made changes. Prepare.”
Jones then traded to the Titans with a 2023 six-round pick, and the other side’s bargaining chips are the 2022 second-round pick and the 2023 four-round pick. During his time with the Falcons, he received 848 times, advanced 12,896 yards and 63 touchdowns. Jones averaged 95.5 yards per game, ranking first in NFL history and nearly 10 yards higher than second-ranked Calvin Johnson.
