It could not have been easy for Matt Ryan to see the Falcons trade away Julio Jones over the weekend.

The two players have been arguably the best quarterback-receiver combo of the last decade in the NFL, connecting 848 times for 12,896 yards and 60 touchdowns dating back to the 2011 season.

Now the two players are rivals as Jones was traded over the weekend to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2022 draft,  a fourth-round pick in the 2023 draft with the Falcons shipping a sixth-round 2023 selection back to the Titans.

While some quarterbacks may have sounded off after losing a great player and teammate like Jones, Ryan issued a classy farewell, highlighting his relationship with his star receiver and Jones’ incredible production in the NFL.
