Falcons are in cap hell and can't sign their rookies. Not many players left who can restructure contracts to allow them to sign up their rookie class so they will need to look to trade someone like Jones. Apparently he requested a trade ages ago but I don't know if I buy that. Surely that kind of news would get out somehow.

Don't know where they get that the Titans have the cap flexibility from.  Not seeing who they could either cut or restructure to find $12m of space for Julio's contract.

That tweet could only be made by someone who didn't see him on the field last season. I say 'on the field' rather than 'play', because at no point did he do anything reminiscent of a football player playing football. If he's one of the best remaining, god knows how bad the others must be. If he's not completely washed up, then he did a damned fine impression of someone totally mailing it in to protect his health in 2020.

And as Lawrence is Carted off they call on Tebow to go under center. He drives them down the field for a FG that makes it a 10-35 game. It’s all apart of his plan 

 

As long as it's the 4th Quarter Tebow will lead them to the win.

Tebow is never going to be the best QB but i loved watching the 4th Quarter of our games with him as the QB. Always exciting. Remember he has a play off win under his belt against a good Steelers team.... can't believe this was 10 years ago

Tebow only made the playoffs in the first place because Marion Barber/Felix Jones (can't remember which) was too stupid to understand NFL clock management.

Weston Richburg retires from playing so the 49ers have a little more cap space to take a run at Julio...

Out of seemingly nowhere the USFL name is being revived & launching next season although it has no connection the first incarnation. The original USFL ran for three seasons between 83 & 85 with a move to autumn/winter in direct competition with the NFL for 86 never happening as the league ceased before the planned season. The push to compete with the NFL directly was pushed by the New Jersey Generals owner a certain former POTUS. No ambitions this time to compete with the NFL but will compete with the XFL & to an extent the CFL.

So Julio Jones looks like he is off to Titans for a 2nd round and something else (5th round maybe). Sorry to see him go as a Falcon fan as the offense could've been something else this year with Ridley, Pitts and support from Gage, Hurst plus others.
I felt he is near a tipping point in his career, not the AJ Green levels but more recovery, injury hampering his play. No doubt still a top level WR.
Not sure Titans quite fit the bill as a win now team that he said he wanted.
Falcons move on but would have preferred a future 1st rounder in 3 years or so. Provide capital to find Ryan's successor in a couple of years.

Ja'Wuan James files a $15m grievance against the Bronocs.
Interesting to see how this shakes out as the NFL office (or was it the players union?) did remind players they weren't covered if they were injured away from team facillites.
IF we do have to pay the claim does it count against the cap?

Edit.
he’s now signed a 2 year deal with the Ravens. They do know he’s done for the year and made of glass?
