Julio Jones has been linked to the New England Patriots for quite some time. He makes perfect sense right now and he would definitely be a good fit for Bill Belichick’s team.
The Patriots head coach made big splash in free agency. Belichick was also successful in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Mike Tannenbaum shared his thoughts on Jones’ signing. He didn’t rule out the possibility of the Patriots following suit during the season.
Jones may be a blockbuster trade centerpiece. The Atlanta Falcons wouldn’t deal him until next month. However, they should consider moving him at the right time. The Falcons have a brutal salary cap situation. Moving Jones would help them relieve their financial stress. So, yes, trading him makes perfect sense.
Julio Jones makes perfect sense to Patriots fans
Tannenbaum talked on ESPN and added Belichick’s team to the Jones trade speculation.
“They signed Nelson Agholor, they signed Kendrick Bourne, but the Patriots will be in the playoff hunt,” Tannenbaum said, as transcribed by Boston.com. “This could possibly put them over the top in winning the division.
“They could use a frontline No. 1 receiver. If Cam Newton’s going to have any chance of taking this team to the playoffs, Julio Jones would certainly help them get there.”
Tannenbaum also said that Jones is one Nick Saban’s list. He is one of his all-time favorites. Maybe Belichick will make a play for the Alabama product.
Many teams will be interested in Jones if Atlanta makes him available. New England will enter the mix if Jones’ gates open up. However, the team shouldn’t go broke for a player. Yes, he is an excellent player but he wouldn’t help the Patriots make the Super Bowl.
Let’s see what happens in the next few weeks. Belichick has to make a big move and he will do the best for the organization.
The Patriots added a lot of valuable players in the offseason. Belichick has everything he needs to make the playoffs and hopefully, win the Super Bowl. Things got really hot in New England.
