The Atlanta Falcons announced on Sunday that they have traded Julio Jones, and they had a tribute video ready to go after they parted ways with the All-Pro wide receiver.
The Falcons traded Jones to the Tennessee Titans for a second-round pick next year and a fourth-round and sixth-round pick in 2023. Shortly after they made the news official, they shared a touching tribute video to Jones on Twitter.

Jones played 10 seasons in Atlanta and made the Pro Bowl seven times. He has been one of the most dominant wide receivers in football, which is why his new teammates are so ecstatic to have him.
The Falcons freed up more than $15 million in salary cap space by trading Jones. They held negotiations with multiple teams, but it’s possible they gave the 32-year-old some say in where he ended up.
