In what has been a disastrous season for the Falcons, it might get even worse.

There are rumblings around the league as to whether or not the Falcons will look to trade quarterback Matt Ryan or wide receiver Julio Jones before the November 3rd trade deadline.

The biggest hurdle for the Falcons to move one or both in the next two weeks is the massive contracts of the two players.

Ryan has a cap hit of $18,962,500 for this year and $40,912,500 next year. That is not necessarily what teams want to acquire in a trade, but it could be something that puts a team over the top and in contention.

Jones is in the midst of a three-year, $66 million contract, so again, not an ideal trade piece. There are several teams around the league that would benefit by trading for Jones, should they accept the large contract.

After a 1-5 start and the firing of former head coach Dan Quinn, it might be time for a complete overhaul in Atlanta.
