The Tennessee Titans brought Julio Jones here to make plays. Period.
It’s been a while since Tennessee Titans fans have seen Julio Jones. The last time they played the Atlanta Falcons was September 29th of 2019. Jones, obviously, was on the other sideline for that one, but the two-tone blue handled him pretty well.
Jones caught four passes for 52 yards as Tennessee left the ATL with a 24-10 beatdown in their back pockets. Fast forward a season, and there wasn’t much of a reason to watch the Falcons last season, other than the dramatic aspect. It almost became comical to see how they’d blow this game or that one, and Jones wasn’t himself, missing six games on the season with a hamstring issue. That includes weeks 14 through 17.
He finished the campaign with 51 receptions for 771 yards and three trips to the end zone, which aren’t Jones-like numbers at all. Julio also turns 32 on February 8th, so if you’re wondering why there’s some concern about how his body will hold up, blame all of those factors.
By now you’ve heard the news. On June 6th, Jones traded his Atlanta jersey for a Titans ensemble, one that will sport the number 2. Tennessee’s schedule is a gauntlet, but with A.J. Brown on the other side of the formation, there’s a chance that he’ll face the second-best cover guy on many of the opposing teams’ rosters.
With that being said, might a comeback player of the year award be on the horizon or, better yet, Jones’ eighth trip to the Pro Bowl? It should be a huge year for Jones, all things considered, With that being said, here are three teams he figures to torch during the 2021-2022 season.
