The Atlanta Falcons are reportedly willing to trade star wide receiver Julio Jones and there are two teams emerging as the top potential landing spots for the pass catcher.
Ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft, NFL insider Benjamin Allbright identified the two potential landing spots which could shake up the AFC.
According to Allbright, the Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders are in the mix to trade for Jones.

The news comes at a time when the Falcons are reportedly set to remain at the No. 4 spot in tomorrow’s draft to select Florida Gators tight end Kyle Pitts, who many consider being a generational talent.
Falcons general manager Terry Fontenot also admitted the team was in a rough salary cap situation.
“We are in a difficult cap situation,” Fontenot said. “That’s just the circumstance. It’s not a surprise for us, it’s the circumstance we’re in… So when teams call about any players, then we have to listen, we have to weigh it, and we have to determine what’s best for the organization.”
We will have to see how everything plays out over the next few days.
The 86th annual NFL Draft will be held across three days from April 29 to May 1.
This year’s draft will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, incorporating FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, and the Great Lakes Science Center.
