Julio Jones has made his intentions clear that he now not needs to play with the Atlanta Falcons. In an impromptu interview with Shannon Sharpe, he stated, “I wish to win.”
The Falcons have not gained a lot since their 28-34 time beyond regulation loss throughout Tremendous Bowl LI in opposition to the New England Patriots. The one different time Atlanta was within the Tremendous Bowl was 18 years earlier after they misplaced to the Denver Broncos.
Julio Jones has proven his intent to maneuver on from the Atlanta Falcons, and some groups are able to dig their claws into Jones. One in all them is the Tennessee Titans, who have already got two gamers making an attempt to recruit Jones publicly, particularly working again Derrick Henry and vast receiver A.J. Brown.
It is very important notice that Jones does not have a lot (or any) say the place he can be drafted. However that did not cease Brown from going for it and sending a voice message to Jones and posting it.
Brown took his recruiting public with a publish describing why Jones ought to wish to play for the Titans. The Titans are already opening arms to a possible Jones touchdown in Tennessee.
Jones reportedly requested for a commerce from the Falcons months in the past, per NFL Community’s Ian Rapoport, and Atlanta has been receptive to pursuing a commerce.
Brown’s marketing campaign will not affect Jones’s recruitment
Whereas Brown’s recruitment efforts are inspiring, his voice message in the end will not have a lot affect. He will not have a big impression on whether or not Jones is drafted into the Titans or not. The Titans’ normal supervisor, Jon Robinson, might want to put within the effort to reel Jones to Tennessee.
Jones did not reply to both message despatched two years aside, however he hardly ever posts on social media.
When you concentrate on Brown’s try to affect Jones’s placement, it’s brazen. A participant who tries to recruit one other participant, whether or not public or non-public, is tampering. The league’s authorized tampering interval passed off in March, though it solely applies to unrestricted free brokers.
The NFL does not penalize gamers for going after specific gamers. However in view of tampering violations, NFL gamers often haven’t any energy or affect on roster choices, not like the NBA, the place gamers are way more influential.
The Kansas Metropolis Chiefs, for instance, had been docked draft picks and fined closely in 2016 for contacting Jeremy Maclin earlier than the beginning of free company.
