Julio Jones has made it clear that he wants out of Atlanta.  Shannon Sharpe possibly committed a crime getting the wide receiver to admit it on live TV.

The reason Julio wants to move on from the only franchise he's ever know is, he found out the Falcons were shopping him around in an attempt to clear cap space.

According to NFL insiders, he has requested a trade.

From Larry Brown Sports:

In an appearance on “The Rich Eisen Show” Thursday, ESPN’s Dianna Russini said that trade request (or demand) came after Jones found out the Falcons were shopping him around.

“The Falcons had been doing work over the phone probably since early March,” Russini said. “They started to put it out there that, ‘Hey, we’re open for business.’ They had a few teams and had some interest.

“The way I gathered the information since I started hearing about this a few months ago, it was Atlanta open to a trade and then Julio found out about it. And that’s how that began.”

The Patriots remain the favorites to land Jones and I'm all in on that.  Who wouldn't love to see the haters lose their minds watching that happen?
