For once, the takes weren’t flying on “Undisputed.” Instead, some actual news was involved in the show starring Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless.

Sharpe called up Falcons star wide receiver Julio Jones and asked him point blank about the rumors of him wanting out of Atlanta.

“Nah, I’m out of there, man,” Jones said, although it was uncertain if he knew he was on live television. “Right now, I want to win.”

When Sharpe told him not to go to the Cowboys, because he wouldn’t win there, he said: “C’mon man, you already know I know. … I ain’t going to Dallas. I never thought about going to them.”

NFL Network reported Jones requested a trade from the Falcons “a few months ago.” Atlanta is asking for a first-round pick from interested teams, per ESPN.

Bayless, a Cowboys fan, went from excited to downtrodden. He probably wasn’t the only one. Falcons and Cowboys fans couldn’t have been happier to hear what Jones had to say either.

There was a report by NBC Sports Boston that Jones wants to play for the Patriots and team up with Cam Newton. The 32-year-old wideout is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection who has led the NFL in receiving yards twice, in 2015 and 2018.
