Regardless of where you might stand on his viability as a big play wide receiver these days, Julio Jones is undoubtedly one of the most respected receivers by his peers. So Tyreek Hill’s reaction to the possibility of the Kansas City Chiefs trading for him should be obvious.
Speaking to reporters at a youth football camp he was hosting, Hill said it would be “amazing” to play with the Atlanta Falcons star. He said he’s been a fan of Jones since high school and thinks Jones is one of the NFL’s best.
“If I could play alongside Julio Jones, that would be amazing,” Hill told The Kansas City Star. “I was in high school when he was doing his thing at Alabama, and I’ve been a fan ever since. How big he is, how fast he is and how dominant he is, we all know Julio is arguably the best in the game. If I’m able to play alongside Julio, I would love it.”
Hill isn’t the only member of the Kansas City Chiefs excited at the idea of adding Jones to their ranks. Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce recently said he’d be “intrigued” by the idea of adding him.
“I’ll tell you what, I’m intrigued,” Kelce told ESPN’s NFL Live last week. “My eyes are open. I’m peeking at the headlines seeing where it goes. Listen, that’s a game-changer when you talk about guys that can make plays anywhere on the field, full route tree no matter where you put him. I mean that’s a guy that changes the game and changes teams, so I’m interested to see where he lands.”

The Chiefs already boast one of the best offenses the NFL has seen in years. They’ve scored over 450 points in each of the last three seasons with two No. 1 offenses.
Tyreek Hill has been a big part of that elite offense, making five straight Pro Bowls since his rookie season. Adding Julio Jones might make it virtually impossible to double anyone on the Chiefs’ stacked offense.
