If traded, Julio Jones wants to go to a contender, as most big-name players want, but one other thing I've heard intrigues: A big-armed QB that can deliver the deep ball. Jones wants to outrun DBs and get underneath the ball.

The 32-year-old Jones has played all 10 seasons with the Falcons, but salary cap concerns and the team’s rebuilding with a new general manager and head coach have apparently put him on the trading block.
Last season, Jones played in only nine games due to injury. He has made 848 receptions and scored on 60 touchdown passes over the course of his career.
Exactly which team would satisfy Jones’ apparent request is uncertain, with his added hope that the team also be a contending team further narrowing the possible destinations.
It will be interesting to see if any contender around the NFL makes a play for the highly talented veteran.
