336: Seahawks now a 'favorite' to trade for Julio Jones
Last week the word on the street was the Atlanta Falcons wanted a first round pick to trade future Hall of Fame wide receiver Julio Jones. Now, after an appearance on Undisputed, it seems much more likely that a trade will happen. We take a listen to the phone call that definitely wasn't an impromptu tv moment and talk about the Seahawks as an odds on favorite to trade for Jones. Considering what Julio said during the call, Seattle does make some sense in terms of his landing spot.
While Julio would offer the potential to impact the offense, there is a bigger area of need and a player who may be available to fill that need. Ahkello Witherspoon is a name of a player currently on the team who could fill a critical need, but does his latest press conference inspire confidence that he could be that guy? If you look at the latest NFL.com starting roster projection for Seattle, Witherspoon seems to be a favorite to be a starter. But will it last?
In the second half of the show we discuss Russell Wilson's support for Naomi Osaka skipping out on a post match press conference. Maybe Osaka should take a page from the playbook of a former Seahawks player or maybe we could just be okay with allowing athletes to decide if they want to speak to the media or not after an event. Closing the show we talk about a 'conspiracy theory' involving Tim Tebow as well as a spooky event involving one of Adam's neighbors. Better at life honors go to Seahawks reporter Michael-Shaun Dugar for his nomination for a prominent award in sports media and to a nuc of bees that has a new home.
