Falcons Trading Julio Jones to Titans
The Atlanta Falcons are expected to trade All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans within the next 24-48 hours, barring any unexpected setbacks, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
The Falcons and Titans are still in the process of finalizing compensation, but there is confidence that this will get completed and assuming there are no snags, the trade will be officially processed on Monday.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Falcons and Titans are discussing whether the package for Jones will be a second- and a fifth-round pick, or a second-round pick with a swap of other picks.
Jones, 32, is the Falcons’ career leader in catches (848) and yards (12,896) and is second to Roddy White in touchdown receptions (63), and is slated to earn a base salary of $15.3 million fully guaranteed this upcoming season.
Jones is looking to rebound after one of the worst seasons of his career in 2020, in which he was limited to 9 games due to injury. Jones finished the 2020 campaign with 51 receptions for 771 yards and three touchdowns.
