The Tennessee Titans have traded for All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones. Per multiple reports, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has been traded to the Tennessee Titans. Jones fought injury in 2020 that held him to just nine games played, yet he created 771 getting yards, and he’s just one season eliminated from a 1,394 yard, six-score crusade in 2019 that followed a 1,677 yard, eight score blast two seasons back. His professional numbers (12,896 getting yards and 60 scores in 10 seasons on 848 gets) make him a first-voting Hall of Fame competitor, and he’s not done, preparing to add to his 58 rounds of 100 yards or more when the normal season gets in progress in September. A.J Browns’ reaction to the trade was quite an in order by saying: “Y’all done f*cked up”
It was normal that the Falcons would stand by until the schedule went to June to pull the trigger, considering the compensation cap consequences. If the Falcons had exchanged Jones in front of June 1, they would’ve endured a heavy dead-cash hit of $23.25 million and lost $200,000 by and large against their cap. Here are the terms of the deal officially:
With the Titans, Jones will join rising third-year star A.J. Brown, who was named a Pro Bowler in 2020 after his second consecutive 1,000-yard season. In two NFL seasons, Brown has 2,126 receiving yards and 19 scores. Hopefully, both will be pro-bowlers. The Titans have some work after this trade though, they just incurred 15.3 million in cap space by trading for Jones. A Ryan Tannehill restructure should clear this space. The Titans have potentially a top-three offense in that, Julio Jones, A.J Brown, Derrick Henry, and Ryan Tannehill are all in the same backfield. They were all SEC players. Derrick and Julio coming from Bama, Tannehill from Texas A&M, and A.J Brown from Ole Miss. This team will be fun to watch in the fall, and Titans fans can’t wait!
