It seems like everyone wants to get in on the Julio Jones sweepstakes nowadays and that includes Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool. Claypool recently recruited the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver to come join the team.

Steelers News: Chase Claypool Recruiting Julio Jones

Claypool told TMZ how he would love to see Jones come to the Steel City when he was in Los Angeles last week. Jones reportedly wants out of the Falcons organization and it seems like a trade is imminent at this point. Atlanta has received a number of offers for the All-Pro wideout.

The Steelers don't exactly need a wide receiver right now, though. Pittsburgh has a lot of depth at that spot on the roster with Claypool, Juju Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson and James Washington. However, Claypool said, "You can never get too many superstars."

Jones has 10 seasons of NFL experience under his belt and averages the most receiving yards per game in NFL history (95.5). He has scored 60 touchdowns in his career and averages an impressive 15.2 yards per reception as well. Jones would simply take Pittsburgh's offense to another level.

Claypool is coming off a solid rookie season in which he racked up 873 yards on 62 receptions and scored 9 touchdowns. He will look to keep building off his success and who knows, maybe he'll be doing it while lining up alongside Jones next season.
