Atlanta can’t trade All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones until June 2, but the team continues to field calls from interested suitors. We’ve heard rumors that the Titans, Patriots, Raiders and Eagles could all be in the mix for Jones.

You can add two NFC West teams to that list after both the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks have reportedly engaged in trade talks with the Falcons. Per ESPN’s Dianna Russini, the Seahawks are interested in making a deal, plus quarterback Russell Wilson and Julio Jones have discussed potentially linking up in Seattle.

You may be wondering why the Seahawks would be interested in acquiring Jones since the team has receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett under contract and only $7.25 million in cap space. As we pointed out yesterday, though, the NFC West is among the most talented divisions in football and the four teams are in an arms race for the 2021 season.

There isn’t a franchise in the league that wouldn’t benefit from a player the caliber of Jones, however, his destination will likely come down to whichever team is willing to part with the highest draft pick.
