It will all depend on the compensation which has to be a #1 and taking over most if not all of the cap hit. That eliminates many of the buyers.

All the speculation seems to favor the buyer. Atlanta isn’t just going to give away arguably the best wr in the NFL IMO.

The part of the cap hit resulting from the signing bonus will be absorbed by the Falcons. The cap hit from his salary will be on average about $12+ mil per year for three years. That is a bargain for a player like Julio Jones. The wrinkle for the receiving team is that Jones may want a new contract because of that, so that may limit the enthusiasm of a team for giving up a 1st round pick.
