Is he actually available? Would today's MI be an improvement?
What WR, that is actually available, would be an upgrade for us?Can he play WR? Can we get a legitimate WR? RB is not our issue. We need WRs. I'd trade Ian Book for a WR at this point.
I'm pretty sure there are WRs out there that we can trade to a team the needs a QB.Is he actually available? Would today's MI be an improvement?

Could be that Mack is the only player that we can afford who would improve the team. IF we trade for him, that is.
Aside from Julio, who? And @jayd265 is correct. No chance on Julio.I'm pretty sure there are WRs out there that we can trade to a team the needs a QB.
We could have even gotten Julio for cheap.
Wasnt Jones traded? Absolutely zero chance atl would’ve traded him here.
We weren't over the cap. It was a cut to generate space, but we weren't over. We've been under the cap since the 2021 league year started on March 17th, Murray wasn't released until September 7th.Hindsight is so cool, huh?
IF TJJ hadn't been hurt .....
IF we had more $$$ .....
IF Murray had looked better in pre-season .....
But those types of decisions aren't made in a vacuum. Murray was outperformed and then cut and TJJ was injured and we were over the cap.
You're right. But to some extent it is semantics. We were still making financial moves to stay under the cap as we churned the roster. Note that I said " IF we had more $$$", not that he was a direct cap casualty.We weren't over the cap. It was a cut to generate space, but we weren't over.

Some good points but realistically, when was the last time the Falcons made a trade with the Saints? Or vice versa?Putting aside if the Saints would have wanted Julio, I don't think it is as far-fetched as many believe for a few reasons:
1. The Falcons know/knew they were in a rebuilding mode, and even a year away from that most likely (when they can get out from under Matt Ryan's deal cap wise).
2. Because they know that, they'd probably be more inclined to deal an aging wide receiver that might could help their enemy this year, but likely not 2-4 years from now.
3. Terry Fontenot is the new Atlanta GM, having come from the Saints. So there is a working familiarity there.
4. The Saints have extra picks due to the exits of Fontenot, etc (minority hires).
So I don't think it is that far off -- as we've seen teams trade older vets before (Pats/Bills with Bledsoe), knowing it would strengthen their draft capital but likely not hurt them down the road.
That all said, I don't think the Saints had any interest in another injury-hobbled WR who can sometimes irk the team.
There may be something out there, but I sure can't remember it
Yea. Traded. No way he was coming.
At this point I’d take cooks
