The Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans are among the teams that continue to monitor a potential Julio Jones trade.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN updated the situation during an appearance Sunday on SportsCenter, noting the Rams and Seahawks are hesitant about the combination of draft picks and salary required to pull off a deal:
“Teams are still having a problem with some of the money involved, the draft-pick capital they’d have to give up. I think the Rams are in that boat, so [they] haven’t been overly involved in recent days, but the Rams are always lurking. They’re always willing to give up first-round picks. Now, let’s go to Seattle, another team that’s typically aggressive on the trade market. Russell Wilson, we saw ‘Let Russ Cook’ all year, especially those first eight to 10 games. Probably the best deep-ball thrower in the entire league. He loves Julio Jones, would love to play for him. Seattle knows that. I think they would have a little bit of a problem with the money, that $15 million salary. They wouldn’t want to do that and give up a high pick, I know that. But they are at least internally still discussing this. Now, Tennessee and Ryan Tannehill. Tennessee came up the most around the league this last week on teams that could be aggressive in getting Julio. I know they’re still monitoring the situation. Still have some interest to some degree but haven’t really pulled the trigger on this yet.”
The latest news comes amid Fowler’s report from Saturday that said Jones wants to play for a contender that has a “big-armed” quarterback. The Rams (Matthew Stafford), Seahawks (Russell Wilson) and Titans (Ryan Tannehill) all fit the criteria. It could be said that neither Stafford nor Tannehill is better than Matt Ryan, but the Rams and Titans are in a far better position to contend for a Super Bowl than Atlanta.
