Julio Jones Trade Impacts New Orleans Saints, NFC South

The Atlanta Falcons traded WR Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday and now the New Orleans Saints will feel the impact from multiple angles. No more Julio Jones, but a new test is on the horizon and how the Saints must defend it. What the Jones trade means for the Saints in matching up with the Falcons in 2021.

The trade also shakes things up in the NFC South. The Falcons now have the resources to sign their draft class and add some pieces. Will they do so effectively? Or can the Saints increase distance with some offseason moves of their own? The NFC South now looks most assuredly like a two-team race.

What the Saints can do throughout the rest of the offseason to prepare for what Atlanta might add with their newly found cap dollars and why Julio ending up in Tennessee could possibly open up a chance to for a hometown favorite to hit the market.
