Wide receiver Julio Jones has said he's ready to leave the Atlanta Falcons.

The 32-year-old star receiver said in a short phone interview with Undisputed host Shannon Sharpe that he was leaving the Falcons.

Falcons general manager Terry Fontenot has reportedly been listening to trade offers for Jones' services since April. Jones had requested a transaction in March.

When asked where he would like to play, Jones replied that he just wanted to win.

Jones was the sixth overall pick in the 2011 Draft and spent all 10 seasons of his NFL career with the Falcons. He is the leader in team history for receptions (848) and receiving yards (12,896).

In addition, Jones caught 60 touchdown passes, was drafted to the Pro Bowl seven times and was on the NFL All-Star team on two occasions.

 

Jones is due to pocket a guaranteed US $ 15.3million next season, and he should count for just over US $ 23million under the Falcons' payroll. If the Atlanta training exchange after 1 st  June, it could split the money over two seasons.
