Philadelphia Eagles rival doesn’t appear to be on Julio’s radar
Well, it appears that we can scratch two teams off of Julio Jones‘ list of options. It appears that the hype and all of the rumors that surrounded the coup of the decade by the Philadelphia Eagles have finally died down.
Seriously, have you ever noticed that the Birds are always on the list of teams that are expected to land some disgruntled star or highly-touted trade option (especially when they have no money to spend)? Well, not only does that seem like more of an impossibility that they’ll land Jones, it appears that one of Philly’s biggest rivals won’t either.
This one’s good for a laugh if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
There’s never a shortage of Dallas Cowboys news on Fox Sports 1’s Skip and Shannon: Undisputed. Thanks to Skip Bayless being an admitted Cowboys homer, Dallas can, at times, dominate the conversation.
Recently, while discussing Jones being seen in a Cowboys shirt, Shannon Sharpe took it upon himself to get Jones on the phone. The results were some of the best television that these two have put out since Lil Wayne showed up for a segment.
As Terrell Owens would say, “Getcha popcorn ready!”. Kick your feet up, and check this one out.
What’s that? Oh, of course. You can absolutely get that one transcribed:
Shannon: Man look. Do you want to go to the Cowboys Julio, or do you want to stay in Atlanta?
Julio: Oh man no. I’m out of there man!
Shannon: Ideally where would you like to go?
Julio: Right now. I just want to win.
Shannon: Well, don’t go to Dallas. If you go there, you ain’t winning!
Julio: Man, come on. You already know that I know… I ain’t going to Dallas man. I never thought about going to Dallas.
There you have it folks, and with that, we can put a bow on this one. The initial thought would probably be this. Why would Dallas pursue Julio and his massive contract anyway when they have CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Michael Gallup?
The answer to that one is simple. The Cowboys and their fans have been anything but rational over the years. Jerry Jones is paying Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper like they’re top-five players at the position (and none of them are). Why would you believe they wouldn’t make a play for Julio would probably be the better question.
