From Julio Jones to the Vikings ??? Don’t hold your breath … – NFL Sports

Some of the crazy internet rumored Pantheons are “Mount Rushmore” or some sort of lie. Honored by this digital monument are Mantaiteo’s girlfriend, the prince of Nigeria who left heritage, Bigfoot dead in the cooler box, and the perpetual fourth space left open. It is an image. It’s intentional because it represents the type of wild taste of hoaxes and rumored days that are thrown out on a regular basis.

Today, one such rumor has hit fans here in Minnesota.

As far as I know, it comes from a Minnesota sports fan named “Kevin”.

What is this post read…

“Breaking news: According to sources near me, the Vikings have been seriously discussing with Julio Jones’ agents and have completed trade negotiations with Atlanta and are sending them to Minnesota. Coming soon.”

He continued another post a few hours later, arguing that the deal was a bit advanced and could bear fruit tonight or late tomorrow morning.

Twitter got hooked and random Facebook friends started posting things like “JULIO JONES” in all capital letters … There are rumors of the internet today. It’s like someone combining 2 and 2 without the actual procurement. Julio needs a team. Falcons is considering a deal with him. Viking requires WR3 and completion. Jones is a Viking.

This won’t happen before you get hooked on the hype, and we should all calm down. There are several reasons why this match in fantasy football paradise won’t happen.

The first, and perhaps the most important end of the story, was pointed out by my colleague at KFAN Paul Charchian. Church reminded us on social media The Vikings remain capped for the 2021 season. Cap gurus Rob Brzezinski used his magic to win free agents several times and create a roster, but today’s cap space is only $ 7 million and Viking has all the rest in draft class 11 May contribute to human players.

Currently, Atlanta Jones has a base salary of $ 15.3 million. He’s different from his former player, but he doesn’t even play for the veteran’s minimum of about $ 1 million. This is all the amount the Viking wants to pay.

In addition, Julio is 32 years old, injured, and seems unwilling to take a backseat to Adam Thielen, Justin Jefferson, etc. at the root tree. The Vikings entered the draft in search of a wide receiver to compliment Thielen and Jefferson.

But again, the price tags aren’t even close to lining up. Why are we humorous about this idea?

After all, the Vikings have to let go of one or two high-paying starters for their salaries to work, and they have to put in draft topics, which puts the future at risk more than necessary. .. .. This team is not currently a star wide receiver away from the Super Bowl.

That said, if that happens, I’ll first paste “Jones” behind the old Rakuon Treadwell jersey and horror all the way to the US Bank Stadium … but that doesn’t happen.
