Acquiring Julio Jones would be great, but what are some other trades the Arizona Cardinals could make that would fill an actual need?

Thanks to some recent fun had by DeAndre Hopkins, some Arizona Cardinals fans now think their favorite team currently has a chance to land Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones in a trade.

While Jones is a tremendous talent, and the duo of him and Hopkins would be lethal, the likelihood of the Falcons receiver actually ending up with the Cardinals seems very low.

First off, Arizona doesn’t even have enough cap space to afford how much Jones currently costs. Obviously, the Cardinals can shift some things around to create cap space. But would giving up a bunch of valuable assets to acquire someone who missed seven games last season really be worth it?

While Arizona doesn’t have enough spending money to afford Jones right now, they do have still enough to trade for some other very talented players if they’re interested in doing so.

So instead of trying to make a deal with the Falcons for Jones, who are some of the other players from around the NFL that the Cardinals should consider trading for?
