Well, we’ve all heard the opinions of fans, the media, and some of the players, but for the most part, we hadn’t heard much from the Tennessee Titans‘ receiving corps on how they feel about adding Julio Jones to the roster yet. Actually, that’s no longer correct. We hadn’t heard from any of them until now.
Recently, Tennessee’s star wide receiver A.J. Brown joined the conversation to let us all know how he feels about adding another elite receiver to the Titans’ wheelhouse. It appears that he’s joined Derrick Henry, and now, both men are on the recruiting trail.
Take a look at this one.
Buckle up if you’re a Tennessee Titans fan.
This one’s interesting because, after all, unless your name is A.J. Brown, your role in the offense is going to drop significantly by the time the seven-time Pro Bowler walks in the building.
Adding Jones to a roster that already includes Henry, Brown, rookie Dez Fitzpatrick, Josh Reynolds, and quarterback Ryan Tannehill sounds like a scary proposition for anyone facing this Tennessee offense.
Over the course of Julio Jones’s first ten seasons in the National Football League, he’s hauled in 909 receptions for 13,730 yards and 66 trips to the end zone if you factor in his eight playoff games.
Brown’s on a torrid pace as well. He’s contributed to the Titans’ cause with 133 snags that have resulted in 2,273 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns. Having both men on opposite sides of the formation would keep opposing offensive coordinators up at nights, but you’d have to believe that the Titans’ own O.C., Todd Downing, will sleep like a baby.
The two-tone blue has its share of stud quarterbacks on the schedule, and the first thing that you have to consider is it’s going to be next to impossible for Tennessee to cover Jones’ salary. Still, if a miracle can happen and if Julio (and a few other guys) agree to some sort of restructured deal, this can lead to a match made in Heaven at the wide receiver position (and hell on Earth for every team the Titans face).
