Mike Greenberg Can See Patriots Making Run At Julio Jones Trade

New England does make sense as a landing spot for Jones


Julio Jones doesn’t plan on being with the Falcons for the upcoming NFL season. He’s made it abundantly clear.

A blockbuster trade for Jones, in turn, likely is imminent, but it remains to be seen what the market for the superstar wide receiver will look like. Mike Greenberg, a lifelong, diehard New York Jets fan, has a feeling the rival New England Patriots will throw their hat in the ring.

” … Maybe this just comes from having been a fan of the New York Jets for a really long time, but this feels like exactly the kind of situation the Patriots would get themselves in,” Greenberg said Tuesday on ESPN’s “Get Up.” “They will find a way to get Julio Jones for a third-round draft pick. That feels very Belichickian to me. Whether Cam (Newton) is the quarterback or Mac Jones is the quarterback, I feel like Julio Jones would fit. If he goes there, he would have a Randy Moss-type of season in New England.”

New England definitely would make sense as a landing spot for Jones, who could add a wrinkle to the Patriots’ offense that the unit currently lacks. And considering it probably won’t take a king’s ransom to acquire the seven-time Pro Bowl selection, it would behoove Bill Belichick and Co. to at least check in with the Falcons.
