Monday morning on “Undisputed” Shannon Sharpe called Falcons receiver Julio Jones asking him about his future in Atlanta. “I’m outta there,” Jones told Sharpe while he was on speaker phone. “I want to win,” the receiver said.

Jones reportedly asked for a trade back in March. Jones, whose base salary of $15.3 million is fully guaranteed for this season, is scheduled to cost the Falcons $23.05 million against the cap in 2021 and has cap hits of $19.263 million in 2022 and 2023. It’s unclear if Jones knew he was on live tv when the call took place. Could the Dolphins make a play for the talented wide out? With a young core, draft assets, and fast rebuild, Miami might be just the place Jones is looking for.
