So this clip is pretty wild. Shannon called Julio Jones live on air but didn’t tell Julio he was live. It’s a definite must-watch.
So now the question is, did he know he was saying this live on air? I personally think he thought he was having a personal conversation with Shannon. There is no logical reason to force your hand on this public platform. This is a business, and saying you’re limiting your locations and already out of your current team just isn’t a smart business decision. Maybe he knew Shannon was on set with Skip, but I don’t think he fully understood the situation. Julio’s Agent must be absolutely fuming, and I think Julio isn’t very happy either.
Now. Where does Julio land? He straight up says he wants to win and go to a winner. I personally think a first-round draft pick is not a crazy ask for a top 3 WR in the NFL. Especially a bubble team who can use that extra push into a playoff run. I’d love to see him with a winning organization, Julio has proved he’s a competitor over and over. I definitely see Julio leaving Atlanta after this, and a team who has some extra draft capital should be able to make a move after this.
