If Falcons fans have to watch Julio Jones play against them twice in 2022 while catching passes from Tom Brady, they might combust. According to Skip Bayless, the recently un-retired Brady has reached out to the recent free agent Jones to join him in Tampa.
An inside source told @RealSkipBayless that Tom Brady reportedly DM'd Julio Jones yesterday this message:

Almost all Falcons fans were caught off guard when Jones forced his way out of Atlanta last spring, the new regime was left to pick up the pieces and salvage what they could — netting second and fourth-round picks from Tennessee. The Titans could not advance in the playoffs this year (similarly to the last), losing at home after their first-round bye.
Jones struggled to stay healthy and finished with the worst statistical production of his career — totaling 31 receptions for 434 yards and only one touchdown. Those numbers are even worse than his 2013 campaign when he only played in five games. The Falcons absolutely fleeced the Titans in hindsight, even if it wasn’t their decision.
Julio may get the final laugh, though. With Brady in Tampa, he would have a genuine shot at a Super Bowl in 2022. It would be Falcons fans worst nightmare.
