Julio Jones Doesn't Think The Falcons Need Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown has been a huge topic of discussion in the NFL as of late. His status with the Pittsburgh Steelers is pretty questionable at this point considering he doesn't seem happy to be there. Since Brown is potentially on the move, some players are actively trying to recruit the wide receiver, while players like Julio Jones are doing the opposite.
TMZ caught up to the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and asked him about the possibility of Brown joining the team. "Nah, man. We tight over here. We good over here," he replied curtly.
Just yesterday, Steelers president Art Rooney II talked about the team's options when it comes to Brown and didn't rule out a trade.
“There’s not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision,” Rooney told the Post-Gazette. “We’ll look at all the options. We’re not going to release him, that’s not on the table. But I will say all other options are on the table."
While we don't know where Brown will land come the start of next season, Jones' comments suggest Atlanta is probably an unlikely fit.
The Steelers failed to make the playoffs this season after finishing with a record of 9-6-1.
