Julio Jones Doesn't Want to Play for the Cowboys: 'I Want to Win'

Don't expect Julio Jones to wear the Dallas Cowboys star anytime soon. 

The soon-to-be-ex Falcons receiver said on FS1's "Undisputed" on Monday — perhaps not knowing he was on live television — that he won't be returning to Atlanta in 2021. He also said that he doesn't want to play for the Cowboys, despite being photographed in Cowboys attire, because he wants "to win."

This is a rather candid admission from the All-Pro receiver, but that's because he might not have known he was on TV since "Undisputed" host Shannon Sharpe failed to give him a warning that, you know, he's on air. 

But it's not like he said anything that we didn't already know. The Falcons have made it clear they are open for business when it comes to trading Jones. A recent report said that Atlanta would be willing to accept a second-rounder to give his contract off the books. 

NFL Network reported Monday, following Jones' appearance on "Undisputed," that Jones asked for a trade from the franchise months ago. 

While there might not be a hot market for Jones currently, there will be plenty of suitors for one of the best receivers of the past decade. 

Who do you think should deal for the 32-year-old wideout
