Report: Titans acquiring Falcons WR Julio Jones

The Tennessee Titans are expected to acquire All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones from the Atlanta Falcons barring any setbacks over the next 24 to 48 hours, ESPN reported on Sunday.

Per ESPN, the teams are still negotiating whether the deal involving Jones will include a second- and a fifth-round pick, or a second-round selection with a swap of other picks.

Jones, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, would join A.J. Brown as wideouts on a Titans team that features bruising running back Derrick Henry.

Brown has actively been campaigning over social media for Tennessee to acquire his “idol” Jones.

Henry led the league in rushing with 2,027 yards and added 17 touchdowns in 2020, earning Offensive Player of the Year honors.

Jones, 32, caught 51 passes for 771 yards and three touchdowns in nine games in 2020. His low production was a byproduct of injuries. The Falcons selected him with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 draft.

Jones has three years left on his contract, including $15.3 million for the 2021 season and $11.51 million for 2022 and 2023. His salary cap hit for 2021 is $23.1 million.
