Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones

Newly-minted wide receiver Julio Jones comes to one of the best teams that he’s ever been a part of. He’s clearly past his apex in what’s sure to be a career that ends with his bust being carved and being placed in Canton, Ohio, but like Lewan, even if there’s any dropoff, he’s still going to be one of the best players at his position.

Julio’s addition to the Tennessee Titans’ offense makes them more explosive and one of the more dangerous units in the AFC, but it’s also fair to say that Number 2 is more of a dinner cigar or a feather in the cap than the main course of a nice meal.

Dare we say that Julio is, at best, the third option in Tennessee’s offensive attack? Derrick Henry, the game’s best running back, is the workhorse. No one should be shocked if he racks up another 300 carries or more. A.J. Brown, the other half of one of the best one-two punches in the NFL, figures to see the most targets in the passing game as he’s the guy Ryan Tannehill is the most comfortable with.

Don’t expect record-breaking numbers from Julio, but that won’t be a bad thing. That simply means that Tennessee has a balanced offense. That’s never a bad thing in the NFL.
