Falcons, Cowboys’ Week 10 Opponent, Trade Star WR Julio Jones to Titans

The have traded one of their all-time greats, , to the . This news matters for the as they are set to play Atlanta in Week 10 this year, plus it means Jones won't be playing for an rival or even within the conference in 2021.

Talk of Julio leaving Atlanta has been going for a while now. At one point, a picture of Jones wearing Cowboys merchandise even set off talk of his joining Dallas. But this was never serious; the Cowboys are one of the new teams that can argue it doesn't need Julio.

Much more serious talk had Jones potentially joining division rivals like Philadelphia or Washington, among a host of other teams. But now Julio won't even be staying in the as he's headed to the Titans.

This is all good news for the Cowboys. Their young and developing won't have to worry about one of the best receivers in the game, who even after 10 seasons and in his 30s is still highly productive and a matchup problem for almost any NFL .

Dallas' games against the Atlanta Falcons have already enough drama the last few years. In 2017 we had the infamous “ game” and one of the worst single days in recent Cowboys . Just last year in Week 2 we saw one of Dallas' wildest comebacks against Atlanta.

2021 may not be any different. Many are already dreading seeing rookie TE in a Falcons uniform this year after months of pining for him to potentially fall to the Cowboys.

At least now Pitts, , and the rest of that Atlanta won't have Julio Jones helping them. Who knows what either the Falcons or Cowboys will look like by Week 10 of this upcoming season, but I'd bet Jones' absence will have an impact in some fashion.
