Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones doesn’t expect to be a Falcon much longer.
In a brief conversation with Shannon Sharpe on FS1, Jones said he has no plans to stay in Atlanta.
“I’m out of there,” Jones said.
When asked where he would like to go, Jones said his top priority is going to a candidate.
“I want to win,” Jones said.
Although a photo of Jones wearing a Cowboys shirt recently appeared on social media, Jones has said he will not be going to the Cowboys.
“I’m not going to Dallas, I never thought of going to Dallas,” Jones said.
We know that the Falcons buy Jones, but his contract will be problematic. Jones is guaranteed a $ 15.3 million salary this season, and given the weak market for wide free agency receivers, it’s clear that there aren’t many teams looking to spending a lot of money for a veteran wide receiver. Trade negotiations may turn out less about what the Falcons can get for Jones, and more about how much of Jones’ salary the Falcons are willing to pay to make a trade.
But somehow Jones thinks he’s gone.
