Julio Jones traded from Falcons to Titans

The Atlanta Falcons have traded Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans whi will send a 2022 2nd-round draft pick and a 2023 4th-round pick to the Falcons. Along with Jones, the Falcons will send a 2023 6th-round pick to the Titans.

The Titans didn’t have to spend a #1 pick so in many ways it’s a solid trade. The have a great running game with Derrick Henry and Jones will certainly help to stretch the field and make it harder for defenses to cheat to stop the run.

But the key here is the health of Jones. Is hos foot still a problem? That will determine the success of this trade. But it’s a decent calculated risk by the Titans while Atlanta sheds payroll and starts to move on.

Chiefs favored by 3 over Bucs in 2021 Super Bowl

NFL fans get a marquee matchup with the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. It’s the best quarterback in the NFL, Patrick Mahomes, against the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady.

The line opened at Kansas City -3.5 and now has settled to Kansas City -3. The over/under is set at 56.5.

This game can go in so many different directions. The Chiefs are a scoring machine, but they’ve stumbled at times early in games. The Bucs are also inconsistent, but Brady has played well in this offense as the year progressed.

That said, Brady had a tough second half versus the Packers last week and it was the defense plus some bad coaching by the Packers that saved the day for the Bucs. Still, it’s always tough to bet against Brady.

I don’t feel strongly about this one at all, but if I had to bet it, or I was in Vegas for some fun, I’d go with the Chiefs -3 and the over.

Tom Brady has challenging first start with Tampa Bay

We’re all excited about watching Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, but we have to keep several things in mind. First, he’s on a new team and he played week one without a preseason to get his timing down. Also, he’s 43 years old. So we all need to expect some drop-off in play. Some argue we’ve already been seeing this with Brady.

The results in week one were not particularly good, but judging Brady, the Bucs or any player or team after one week, particularly this year, is a big mistake.

Let’s see how Brady plays as he gets more comfortable in the offense.
