The hottest story of the NFL right now surrounds the potential future of Atlanta Falcons wide receivers Julio Jone. Jones wants out in Atlanta, and he's the biggest name of potential NFL trade pieces across the league.

The Jones story has been so captivating that FanDuel Sportsbook (Colorado) even released betting odds for his next potential team. However, news broke today that the Baltimore Ravens are one team to have already bowed out of these sweepstakes for the superstar receiver.

Julio Jones Rumors

Kimberley A. Martin, an NFL reporter, appeared on ESPN's Get Up this morning and revealed that both the Ravens and Rams are no longer in any potential talks for this blockbuster trade.

The Ravens do have a clear need at wide receiver, but it won't be coming in the form of the Falcons No. 1 wideout. Last year, Baltimore owned the best rush attack in the league after pulling in close to 200 yards per game on the ground. However, the passing attack ranked dead last at 171.2 yards per game.

Without Jones, the Ravens will need to find other ways to address this clear need of improving their passing game.
