The LA Rams are “not in the Julio Jones market right now,” according to ESPN’s Kimberley Martin. Speaking on Get Up on Wednesday, Martin made it a point to say that the Rams and Ravens are too teams that are “done” with any talk of trading for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones.
Not that the news is surprising to anyone given LA’s lack of a desperate need at the wide receiver position, as well as a dearth of draft capital and financial wiggle room.
“(The Titans are) the team that I’ve heard most people mention that he’ll probably end up (with),” said Martin. “I know for a fact the Ravens and the Rams are done. They’re not in the Julio Jones market right now.”
Wait, so are they “done” or are they just done “right now”?

The Falcons are certain to trade Julio Jones, according to everyone. He carries a $15 million base salary to the team that acquires him, and they might also need to pay up with a second round pick, at least.
That doesn’t seem like something the Rams need to do. Right now. Or tomorrow.
