Julio Jones has been the subject of trade talks for the entire offseason. The Atlanta Falcons are in such bad cap trouble, they may not have enough funds to even sign their first round selection, Kyle Pitts. An obvious solution is to trade Jones, who has a very large salary and a high cap charge.
Jones was called by Shannon Sharpe live on air, during a segment on his FS1 show, Undisputed. He stated that he is “out of there,” in reference to Atlanta. After being asked if he wanted to join the Dallas Cowboys, Jones replied negatively.
The Cincinnati Enquirer’s Tyler Dragon summed it up in a tweet on Monday morning.

He also said he doesn't want to play for the Cowboys.

Where Jones is traded is contingent on the teams that can accept his huge contract. The team would also have to have the correct draft capital to trade back to the Falcons. The cap hit totals over $23 million in 2021 and over $19 million in 2022.
