Julio Jones traded to Titans from Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons have finally found a trade partner for Julio Jones, and the All-Pro wide receiver is heading to Tennessee.
The Falcons have agreed to trade Jones to the Titans, the team confirmed on Sunday. Atlanta will get a second-round pick in next year’s draft and swap its 2023 sixth-round pick for Tennessee’s 2023 fourth-round pick.
The Titans emerged as the frontrunner for Jones last week. Several teams had expressed interest, but the Falcons may have allowed Jones to have some input in the trade if the offers were similar.
Jones, who is 32, had said he wanted to go to a team that would give him a chance to win. The Titans should fit that description, and Ryan Tannehill seems like the type of quarterback Jones wanted to play with.
With Jones and A.J. Brown on the outside, Tennessee’s passing attack should be one of the best in the league in 2021.
