Julio Jones Traded To Titans By Falcons
In a massive move, the Atlanta Falcons will be trading Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans. Jones has spent his entire career with the Falcons since entering the NFL after his standout collegiate career at the University of Alabama. The Titans were considered a likely destination as Jones had been seen training with star Titans running back Derrick Henry. NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport provided details on the move.
Sources: The #Falcons are trading All-Pro WR Julio Jones to the #Titans in exchange for at least a 2nd round pick. A blockbuster for Tennessee, who now gets the coveted big-play threat. And Atlanta ends up with very nice value.

This trade is a massive loss to the Falcons and marks the end of an era for the team. On the other hand, the Titans are receiving a playmaker that catapults them into being favorites in the AFC heading into the 2021 season. With other offensive weapons like Henry and AJ Brown, the Titans are poised to be a massive threat in the conference.
