As summer rolls on, everyone in the NFL continues to eagerly await a final decision on where superstar wide receiver Julio Jones will play next year. He's by far the hottest commodity on the market and for good reason. He's been one of the best wideouts in the game for the past decade, hauling in nearly 13,000 receiving yards, 848 receptions and 60 touchdowns.

Several NFL players have already attempted to recruit Jones from the Atlanta Falcons, who will likely be dealt via trade with three years remaining on his current contract.

Two superstars from the Kansas City Chiefs recently joined in on the recruiting efforts in Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Kansas City is already favored (+500) to win the Super Bowl next season according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and the idea of landing Jones is simply unfair.

Julio Jones Chiefs

Kelce, a 6-time Pro Bowl tight end for the Chiefs, was a bit more reserved in his recruiting. He simply told reporters that he was "intrigued" by the possibility of Jones joining up with the 2020 Super Bowl Champions. But Hill was a bit more forward.

“If I could play alongside Julio Jones, that would be amazing.I was in high school when he was doing his thing at Alabama, and I’ve been a fan ever since. How big he is, how fast he is and how dominant he is, we all know Julio is arguably the best in the game. If I’m able to play alongside Julio, I would love it.”

Tyreek Hill

Despite Hill's efforts, the Chiefs may be long shots to land Jones. According to the odds for Jones' next team (available on FanDuel Sportsbook Colorado), Kansas City owns just +1700 odds to land the WR.

The Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks remain favorites with their +300 odds.
