Why The 49ers Is The Perfect Landing Spot For Julio Jones

The 49ers shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to trade for Julio Jones this upcoming 2021 season. Except it’s too late. The Titans acquired Jones in a trade already. Here’s why the 49ers would have been the perfect landing spot.

A Quarterback With A Strong, Deep Pass

According to Jeremy Fowler, ESPN senior NFL reporter Julio Jones wants to go to a team whose starting quarterback can complete, deep passes across the field into his hands.

The best quarterback to fit Jones’ needs for an efficient quarterback is Jimmy Garoppolo. NFL fans’ initial thought would be Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks to be the best contender due to his deep passes to DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett during the regular season. But Jimmy G is a better quarterback simply due to his performance throughout 2019-2020 regular and post-season. He was ranked number one for the highest completion rate on throws beyond 20+ yards during the 2019-2020 season. He even placed higher than quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes, Gardner Minshew, and Drew Brees.

In 2020, NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks said

“Garoppolo was the NFL’s most efficient deep passer in 2019.”

Played Offense For Kyle Shanahan

Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for the Falcons for two years while Jones was their starting wide receiver. Julio Jones’s career-best for receptions and yards was during 2015, Shanahan’s first season as an offensive coordinator. Jones’ received 136 receptions and 1,871 yards that season. It’s clear Jones’ performs his best with Shanahan’s play-calling and trusts him to design plays to fit his abilities. Recently retired left tackle Joe Staley said it best.

Perfect Fit For Offensive

Jones would easily be the perfect receiver to complete the 49ers offensive. He is arguably one of the best receivers in the NFL who is still playing at 32-years-old. Jimmy G will have more plays designed to throw deep passes to Jones. Jimmy wouldn’t have to only rely on Deebo Samuel and tight end, George Kittle for last-minute catches. He can rely on Jones to catch game-winning touchdowns for the 49ers just like Jones did while playing against the 49ers during the regular season in 2019.

Wants To Win

Shannon Sharpe, TV presenter and co-host for his show Undisputed, had Julio Jones reveal his true feelings about the possibility of being traded to the Dallas Cowboys. Many fans said Sharpe was in the wrong for setting up Jones without him knowing he was on live television, but Jones’ revealed that he never considered playing for the Cowboys and indicated that he wanted to win.

Although the 49ers are going into this season with a record of 6-10 from last season, this Bay Area team is known for making comebacks from injury-prone seasons. During the 2018 season, the 49ers ended with a 4-12 record. The team came back in 2019 and not only beat Drew Brees and the Saints in the last 30 seconds of the fourth quarter, but also beat Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers twice. The 49ers who were the most underrated team ended their 2019-2020 season with a 15-4 record, became NFC West Champions, and played in Super Bowl 54. This team is hungry to be on top of the NFC West Division and to play in Super Bowl 56 in their home state. Honestly, Julio Jones can easily be a part of the 49er legacy.
