Michael Irvin Julio & Antonio Should Join Forces … That’s What Stars Do These Days

EXCLUSIVE

The times they are a-changin’ … which is why a legendary NFL wide receiver thinks Julio Jones and Antonio Brown should team up to win it all.

TMZ Sports got Cowboys HOF’er Michael Irvin outside of Catch in Weho Friday night, and he tells us he’d like to see the Falcons WR and the Pittsburgh WR — who’s on the outs with the Steelers — get together to win a Super Bowl … because neither one of ’em has won anything yet.

We broke the story … Jones rejected the notion of A.B. coming to Atlanta, saying his team was good as is. But, Irvin thinks if LeBron can hook up with D. Wade, and Durant can hook up with Steph to get a ring … Julio should be a little more open to the idea.

As for whether Michael would have welcomed Jerry Rice to be his tag team partner back in the day … he’s not going that far. Besides … they both did fine on their own.

Julio Jones Nick Saban to NFL? … ‘Hell Nah’

EXCLUSIVE

Think Nick Saban would leave his college football dynasty to take another swing at success in the NFL??

Here’s Julio Jones to knock some damn sense into you … cause the ex-Bama superstar tells TMZ Sports there’s NO WAY his old coach should leave Tuscaloosa for the pros.

We spoke with the Falcons receiver about Bama losing to Clemson in the title game earlier this week … and he says there’s no need to jump ship over one loss.

“Dabo (Swinney) was just the better coach and they were the better team.”

Jones says Saban has built something special with the Crimson Tide … and says the dude should ride that wave for as long as he can.

We also asked Julio if he thought Clemson star Trevor Lawrence has what it takes to be an NFL star … and you’ll wanna hear his answer.

Julio Jones Falcons Don’t Want Antonio Brown … ‘We Good Over Here’

EXCLUSIVE

How dope would a 1-2 punch of Julio Jones and Antonio Brown look in Atlanta?!?!

Not that dope … according to Julio himself — who tells TMZ Sports he and the Falcons actually don’t want to see that at all.

“Nah, man. We tight over here. We good over here.”

Of course, the pairing will be possible in what appears to be a matter of days … seeing as A.B.’s antics have pretty much ended his time in the Steel City.

But, don’t expect Julio to openly recruit the stud wideout to the Falcons once that happens … ’cause when we got Julio out in L.A. — he seemed to want no part of it.

Why?? Sure seems like Jones thinks the baggage Brown would bring to the locker room wouldn’t be worth his insane production on the field.

As for the guys currently on Julio’s team … Jet spoke with us about Steve Sarkisian‘s firing and what he expects to see from new OC Dirk Koetter.
