Rumors are heating up as a potential Julio Jones trade nears. The Atlanta Falcons' star wideout is expected to be dealt after June 1, and a deal could happen this week as contenders try to add a missing piece that will solidify their Super Bowl hopes.

However, one team has decided to bow out of the Jones sweepstakes.

Julio Jones Rams

The Los Angeles Rams have apparently given up their pursuit of the All-Pro wideout. The Rams already spent a ton of draft capital to land quarterback Matthew Stafford this offseason, and it seems they'll make do with the current receivers they have in place.

That still leaves a ton of suitors for the current Falcon. The Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens have been linked to Jones since the start of his trade drama. The New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers can't be ruled out to make a big splash either.

And the Seattle Seahawks have emerged at the 11th hour as a real possibility with Russell Wilson trying to convince the wideout to join him for the upcoming season.

It's clear Atlanta will have a few offers to decide from when they finally do part with their franchise legend.
