Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones desires to be traded? Let social media recruitment start
Trade rumors of star receiver Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons had been on the glowing stage for several weeks, but Jones lit the flames Monday when he told Shannon Sharpe, “I’m out there” on FS1’s “Undisputed” show.
Jones had apparently requested a trade early in the season in March, and Terry Fontenot, general manager of Falcons, admitted last month that the team would be taking calls about the former All-Pro recipient.
Needless to say, there is a lot of interest in Jones, at least among NFL players who are eager to be teammates at Jones and start the recruitment process on social media.
Arizona Cardinals recipient DeAndre Hopkins has visions of mating with Jones when he posted a picture of himself with Jones and fellow Cardinals recipient AJ Green from the 2016 Pro Bowl entitled “Julio” on Instagram [you] remember what we talked about. “
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey comes from the opposite angle as Jones as a teammate would mean he wouldn’t have to worry about protecting him in defense. Ramsey wasn’t shy about what he was up to on Twitter.
A successful culture, a great city, prime time games, the number 1 soccer team in LA, etc., etc.
sounds like the rams should be a place superstars should want to play soccer lol lol♂️
Blessing 🙏🏾 #YesImRecruiting lol I want to win 🏆

Former Security Darius Butler asked the Twitterverse where Jones was likely to end up and offered two of his former teams as his top picks.
I say he’ll end up with the Colts or the Patriots!

Baltimore Raven’s corner of Marlon Humphrey, who like Jones played his college ball in Alabama, hoped that featherbirds would flock.
