In a current look on “The Wealthy Eisen Present,” Rapoport mentioned a possible timeline for a Jones commerce. And easily put, there is not one in place proper now.

The bizarre factor about [a] Julio [Jones trade] — it’s doable that it will get accomplished this week — however there isn’t a precise deadline till coaching camp. If the Falcons are like, we’ve got to get a first-round decide. We aren’t buying and selling him except we get a first-round decide, then they might not commerce him till July twenty seventh or one thing like that.

That is a smart timeframe to get a deal accomplished inside. As Eisen and Rapoport mentioned on the present, the Falcons haven’t any of their rookies below contract but, so the newest that they may realistically wait to signal them is true earlier than coaching camp.

If the rookies aren’t below contract by that time, they don’t seem to be in a position to take part in coaching camp. They’re, nonetheless, in a position to take part in OTAs and rookie minicamp with out signing a contract.

So, that is the rationale the tough deadline of July 27 could be the newest a possible Jones commerce might occur.

Rapoport did acknowledge a number of occasions {that a} commerce might occur as quickly as this week. Nonetheless, except the Falcons create any form of synthetic deadline, they may maintain out and attempt to get their most well-liked compensation for Jones.

I might be slightly stunned if one thing just isn’t accomplished earlier than coaching camp, however aside from that, it is actually simply no matter deadline they determine to create. Like, they may inform groups we’ve got to get it accomplished this week so get your greatest provide in so put your greatest provide in as a result of we’re buying and selling him. I have never heard that is occurred. In any other case, it’s all form of ready round to see if one thing spurs motion in a commerce market that appears fairly fleshed out. I don’t get the sense it’s actually accelerated anyplace.

Principally at this level, all the pieces with Jones seems to be a ready sport. There are reportedly a number of suitors for the previous All-Professional, together with the Patriots, Titans and Seahawks.

It is only a matter of whether or not Atlanta can get the first-round decide it needs for him — or whether or not they’re going to should accept much less.

The Falcons have just below two months to reply that query.
