Falcons, Browns Trade Rumors Continue, With Julio Jones Now Prime Target

Peter King, Jason La Canfora and Jay Glazer have all reported the Atlanta Falcons are trying to trade into the top 10 to land either A.J. Green or Julio Jones, but Glazer added details about potential partners (the Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals or San Francisco 49ers) and is now actually predicting a trade happens, rather than just reporting Thomas Dimitroff is inquiring about one.

Glazer says a deal between the Falcons and Browns for the No. 6 pick and an unimpeded chance to select Jones is "likely." While that's still just speculation, and there's no telling how much of that is based on how much he's hearing from credible sources, it's a sign the buzz is increasing.

Still very nervous about the idea. A slip by Jones would be the ideal scenario, but if Jones is Comrade's man, then so be it. We'll see if a deal actually goes down in just a couple hours.
