·2 min read

The window for the Atlanta Falcons to trade wide receiver Julio Jones is about to burst wide open, and multiple teams are reportedly interested in acquiring him for 2021. There have been reports connecting Jones with the Los Angeles Rams, Tennessee Titans, and Philadelphia Eagles. On Sunday, a new team emerged: the Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks reportedly exploring Jones trade

According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the Seahawks have been considering trading for Jones. Quarterback Russell Wilson is even involved as he has reportedly spoken to Jones about playing together in Seattle.

Wilson's sign-off doesn't guarantee that the Seahawks will trade for Jones, or even continue to pursue it, but hearing that Wilson is involved has to make Seattle fans feel better. Reports of Wilson's unhappiness with Seattle management and the Seahawks' front office answering trade calls for the QB came to light in March. But if he's discussing playing together with a possible Seahawks trade target, all that seems off the table — for now, at least.

Rams, Titans, Eagles also interested

The Seahawks are far from the only team interested in adding Jones. According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the Rams and Titans have spoken to the Falcons about a possible trade for Jones. The Eagles, who have a lot of first-round draft capital at their disposal, are also sniffing around a Jones deal, according to Ed Kracz of Sports Illustrated. 

The list doesn't end there. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported on the Saturday morning edition of "SportsCenter" that the San Francisco 49ers "come up the most often" in connection to a Jones trade, and the New England Patriots are also involved. On Sunday, he threw another team into the mix: the Baltimore Ravens.

That's seven teams that reportedly have interest in trading for Jones. As far as frontrunners, Fowler said that "teams are watching" the 49ers closely, while Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk said that "league circles" expect the Titans to eventually land Jones.
