Tennessee Titans obtained: Julio Jones, 2023 sixth-round choose
Atlanta Falcons obtained: 2022 second-round and 2023 fourth-round choose
How’d it prove? Now for Julio. Jones acquired what he needed in leaving a floundering Falcons staff. The future Hall-of-Fame huge receiver has arguably been the finest receiver of his technology, and is the all-time chief in receiving yards per recreation (95.5). The Falcons are clearly in a rebuild (whether or not they need to admit it or not), and an growing older celebrity doesn’t match their wants. The Titans, who made the AFC Championship Game in 2019, now, with Jones and A.J. Brown, have the finest huge receiver tandem in the NFL, and are aiming for a deep playoff run. It’s arduous to think about any return on the commerce figuring out in the Falcons’ favor.
Trading a high-profile huge receiver is a dangerous transfer. While everybody hopes and goals of a commerce to work out like the Diggs transfer between Minnesota and Buffalo, hardly ever does it. More usually than not, buying and selling away an elite huge receiver is a determined act of resignation by a basic supervisor who is aware of his staff, and doubtless he too, is toast.
