With trade rumors circulating about Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, a new report indicates that his wish is to be dealt to a team with a “big-armed” quarterback.

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.
