    I want to see us try. Hes in a position of need and deserves top dollar. What do y’all think? We think that Keim....Oh that’s right, our GM suspended.

    Why would ATL give them up?

    Or are you making a thread just to try to make a dig at Keim?

    This is a legitimate thread and I would make an offer to Atlanta for Julio. But I’m just wondering what will it take.

    Three first rounders.

    Here's the thing: He's 29 right now, and GENERALLY receivers start to decline at age 30. He has 3 years and $35 million left on his current contract. You're going to give him 2 more years and another $20 million to sponsor the decline of his career?

    No thanks he's about to be 30 and has a massive contract.

    We need to focus on building the O-Line next year

    Would be like signing Albert Pujols...You know you're gonna get great production for half of the contract, then you are paying a premium to watch him decline.

    Don’t look at his TD numbers after turning 30.

    You can't count on every number 11 being the same. Also, Jones relies on speed more than Fitz...and speed is usually the 1st thing that goes, unless your name is Darrell Green. Pretty much why Revised just retired...wheels just fell off.

    Julio Jones has never put up the TD numbers Fitz has though.
