Report: Ravens ‘done’ with Julio Jones trade talks originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
“[The Titans are] the team that I’ve most heard people mention that he’ll probably end up [with],” Martin said. “I know for a fact the Ravens and the Rams are done. They’re not in the Julio Jones market right now.”
The Falcons are reportedly seeking a first-round pick for Jones in any deal, and given the fact they almost have to get rid of him to gain much-needed salary cap space, they aren’t entirely in the best position to demand a premium asset like that.
Baltimore just spent a first-round pick on a wide receiver in the 2021 NFL Draft in Rashod Bateman and have 2019 first-round pick Marquise Brown on the roster as well. The Ravens have invested a lot into the wide receiver room, and giving up a first for Jones would only increase their stake in that position.
Jones only played nine games in 2020 due to a lingering hamstring injury, but he was still very productive. He caught 51 passes for 771 yards and three touchdowns, averaging just over 15 yards per reception.
