Falcons’ Julio Jones Heads To Titans, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport Reveals



NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport in a tweet has revealed that the Atlanta Falcons are trading seven-time NFL Pro-Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans.

The full trade, as reported by Rapoport: the Falcons receive a 2022 second-round draft pick and 2023 fourth-round draft pick in exchange for Jones and a 2023 sixth-round draft pick.

Atlanta will receive ‘at least a second-round pick’ in return and, but the blockbuster trade gives the Titans a big-time playmaker in Jones. The trade came shortly after Jones publicly demanded that he wanted out of Atlanta in late May.

The Titans will pay Jones’ salary of 15.3 million this season and the rest of his contract afterward, Rapoport reported, leaving the Falcons with $7.75 million in dead money this season.

The trade is also to Falcons head coach Arthur Smith’s former team in Nashville. The Falcons trade of Jones was a long time in the making due to severe cap constraints. The team will now look to sign their draft class with the money saved from trading Jones.

This is a developing story and will be updated with new information as needed.
