There might be something dirty going down in the dirty South, but not what you think.
Atlanta Falcons star wideout Julio Jones sent the Falcons fan base in to a frenzy Monday night when his Twitter page was not only made private but his followers list was wiped clean and every Falcons-related picture of his was mysteriously gone. Jones also unfollowed everyone on Instagram and removed all Falcons-related photos from his account.There have been rumblings that Jones is about to be traded, just days ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft.
However, as of 9:30pm EST, Jones’ Twitter page has been made public again, his Falcons photos have returned, and he is once again following the team’s account, though the same cannot be said for his IG.
This has some people wondering if Jones was just flexing his ability to break the internet or if he’d been hacked.
The answer isn’t clear yet but with an offseason that has been full of surprises with big names like Dez Bryant and Marcus Peters being let go, Falcons fans have to hope the reason isn’t the best player on the team being shipped off to another squad.
Jones is under contract with the team through 2020 and has three years left on a 5-year deal worth $71,256,045.
