Player Outlook
Jones joins forces with Tom Brady and the Bucs to make another run at a Super Bowl. The great veteran, whose career has faded due to injuries over the past two seasons, signed a one-year deal with Tampa Bay as camps were opening. Jones averaged 4.3 receptions per game, scored four touchdowns and missed 14 games in the 2000 and 2001 seasons. Serving as a complementary option in a prolific passing game at age 33 could be just the ticket for a grand finale even though we can assume he'll never be the star he was through the first nine years of his career. That's why Jones shouldn't be picked until the later rounds in Fantasy drafts.

  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Stands out in first practice

    Jones practiced with the Buccaneers for the first time Thursday and recorded a touchdown pass in goal-line work, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports. The multi-time Pro Bowler wasted no time making his presence felt in a talented offense, connecting with Tom Brady twice during goal-line work, including a leaping grab in the back of the end zone. Jones also had no trouble showing off his field-stretching capability and ability to pick up yards after the catch on intermediate routes during the non-padded practice, making it an impressive all-around debut.

  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: At full health as camp begins

    Jones, who's missed 14 games with injuries over the past two seasons, is at full health entering training camp after signing a one-year, $6 million deal with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reported. Jones declared himself "100 percent healthy" in his introductory press conference, emphasizing he had no lingering issues or pain stemming from the hamstring issues that plagued him in 2021 with the Titans. The veteran receiver also noted he was seeking to fit into what is already a talented wideout room, and if he's able to at least approximate the form he displayed prior to his last two campaigns, it would seem inevitable the multi-time Pro Bowler carves out a solid role in what could be one of the league's most prolific air attacks once Chris Godwin (knee) is ready to make his season debut.

  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Joining Brady in Tampa

    Jones is signing a one-year contract with the Buccaneers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Bucs' WR group suddenly looks much better, with a future Hall of Famer joining the mix and Chris Godwin (knee) avoiding the PUP list to begin training camp. The 33-year-old Jones missed 14 games the past two seasons, and he averaged only 43.4 yards per contest with the Titans last year. He was much better in 2020, his final season with the Falcons, averaging 5.7 catches for 85.7 yards per game with a career-high 11.3 YPT. Even last year he had a 64.6 percent catch rate and 9.0 yards per target, but with limited playing time and inconsistent performance due to various injuries. Tampa could challenge Cincinnati's claim to the best WR group in the league, featuring Godwin, Mike Evans, Jones and Russell Gage.

  • Julio Jones: Remains unsigned

    With NFL training camps looming later this month, Jones -- who the Titans released in March -- remains a free agent. During his lone campaign with Tennessee, Jones, who turned 33 in February, recorded 31 catches (on 48 targets) for 434 yards and a TD in 10 games. At this stage, it doesn't appear imminent that the long-time Falcons stalwart will catch on with another team, but Jones does offer franchises looking to add wideout depth an experienced option, who could be productive if healthy. With that in mind, Daniel Flick of SI.com suggests that the Packers, Colts and Cowboys are among the favorites to potentially add the 2011 first-rounder. Other notable wide receivers who currently remain unsigned are Odell Beckham and Will Fuller.

  • Julio Jones: Officially released

    Tennessee released Jones on Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. The news was reported Wednesday and made official Thursday morning. It frees up around $9.5 million in cap space for the Titans, while Jones becomes an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career. The 33-year-old wideout showed a few flashes of his peak form last season, but hamstring injuries defined his year as he missed seven full games and parts of many others. Jones also missed seven games his final year in Atlanta, though he at least averaged 85.7 receiving yards per contest, whereas last year season he sunk to 43.4. A number of teams figure to show interest in Jones in the coming days/weeks, albeit at a much lower price than what he's accustomed to earning. He did close out 2021 with a pair of relatively healthy performances, with a 5-58-1 receiving line Week 18 and a 6-62-0 line in the playoff loss to Cincinnati.

  • Julio Jones: Set to be released

    The Titans informed Jones on Wednesday that he will be released, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports. Tennessee plans to tag Jones with a post-June 1 designation. In his lone season with the Titans, the 33-year-old caught 31 passes (on 48 targets) for 434 yards and a touchdown in 10 games. Per John Glennon of SI.com, the move frees up $9.5 million in salary-cap space for Tennessee.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Tallies six catches

    Jones recorded six catches on seven targets for 62 yards in Saturday's 19-16 divisional-round loss to the Bengals. Jones led the Titans with six receptions, though he worked almost exclusively in short areas of the field. That resulted in a modest yardage total, with his longest gain going for 16 yards. Even so, Jones matched his highest reception total in any game during his first campaign in Tennessee. He was hampered by a hamstring injury throughout the season, which limited him to only 31 catches, 434 yards and a touchdown across 10 contests -- by far the worst statistical output of his career. The Titans could move on from Jones this offseason, but $13.2 million in dead cap and a lack of proven pass catchers aside from A.J. Brown make it likely that Jones will have the chance to bounce back with Tennessee in 2022.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Shows up for regular-season finale

    Jones recorded five receptions on nine targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans. Jones was forced to miss the Titans' Week 17 game against the Dolphins while on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which may have also given him some needed time to let his hamstring heal. He turned in the best performance of his opening season in Tennessee on Sunday against the Texans, highlighted by a three-yard touchdown reception midway through the fourth quarter. Entering Week 18, Jones had surpassed five targets only once since Week 3 and had failed to reach 50 receiving yards in each of his last five appearances. He could put the disappointing campaign behind him if he can be impactful during the Titans' upcoming playoff run.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Turns in full practice

    Jones (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. If there was a bright side to Jones sitting out the Titans' Week 17 win over the Dolphins after testing positive for the COVID-19, it's that his quarantine period provided him some time to heal up from the hamstring injury that has bothered him off and on throughout the season. Jones' participation was limited in his return to the field Wednesday, but his return to full activity Thursday -- typically the most rigorous practice session for teams most weeks -- suggests the Titans have no reservations of his health. Ideally, the Titans will come out of Sunday's regular-season finale against the Texans with all of their key players healthy, but since Tennessee can secure the AFC's No. 1 seed with a win, Jones shouldn't face any playing-time restrictions while the outcome of the game is still in question.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Limited in return to practice

    Jones (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Jones missed the Titans' Week 17 win over the Dolphins while he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but after being activated Monday, his availability for Sunday's regular-season finale versus Houston will depending on the health of his hamstring. The 32-year-old may suit up even if he's well south of 100 percent, given that the Titans can earn the AFC's No. 1 seed with a victory over the Texans.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Returns from COVID-19 list

    Tennessee activated Jones (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Jones' first six absences of the season had been the result of a hamstring injury and associated setbacks, but he sat out for a seventh time in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins after testing positive for the virus one week ago. Now that he's back on the roster, Jones should be in store for a normal week of practice while making his return to the lineup in the Titans' Jan. 9 regular-season finale in Houston.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Not activated for Week 17

    Jones (illness) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, per Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site. Jones wasn't among the team's Saturday activations in advance of Week 17 action and until he's able to clear the NFL's COVID protocols, A.J. Brown will continue to lead the Titans' wide receiver corps, with Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers also in the mix for added snaps.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Lands on COVID list

    Tennessee placed Jones (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Along with Jones, fellow wideout Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (illness) was placed on the list after both players tested positive for the virus, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. A.J. Brown and Chester Rogers currently profile as the Titans' top available options at the position as Sunday's game against the Dolphins approaches.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Cleared to play Thursday

    Jones (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against San Francisco, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. This comes as a surprise, considering Jones was unable to finish out Sunday's loss to the Steelers and was said to be headed for a game-time decision Thursday night. It turns out he'll suit up, though fantasy managers know by now that Jones isn't quite his old self and comes with heightened risk of an in-game injury. Meanwhile, running mate A.J. Brown (IR/chest) is trending in the right direction for Thursday night, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Headed for game-time call

    Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said Tuesday that Jones (hamstring) will likely be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the 49ers, John Glennon of SI.com reports. Jones logged just 26 snaps and drew one target in Sunday's loss to the Steelers before departing with a hamstring issue that cost him the remainder of the game. With the Colts bearing down on the Titans for the AFC South crown, the coaching staff will surely want to have Jones on the field Thursday if possible, but the veteran wideout likely won't be pushed to play unless he's close to 100 percent, given the multiple hamstring-related setbacks he's dealt with this season. According to Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site, Jones was in uniform for Tuesday's practice, but he didn't take part in drills during the portion of the session that was open to the media.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: No activity at walkthrough

    Jones (hamstring) didn't take part in Monday's walkthrough, John Glennon of SI.com reports. In his second game this past Sunday in Pittsburgh since missing the previous three due to a hamstring issue, Jones again was forced out after 26 offensive snaps and one target, which he didn't haul in. He may be hard-pressed to play on a short week of prep with a Thursday matchup against the Cardinals on tap. Still, Jones will have two more opportunities to get on the practice field and potentially put himself in a position to suit up Week 16.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Won't return Sunday

    Jones won't return to Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a hamstring injury, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports. Jones caught four passes for 33 yards in his return from injured reserve last week against the Jaguars, but he appears to have aggravated the hamstring injury versus the Steelers. The 32-year-old failed to catch his lone target Sunday before exiting the contest, leaving Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers to operate as Tennessee's top wideouts.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Targeted six times in return

    Jones recorded four receptions on six targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Jaguars. Jones took the field for the first time since Week 9 and managed his highest target total since Week 3. The majority of his production came in the first half and was highlighted by gains of 16 and 12 yards. A.J. Brown (chest) is not eligible to return from injured reserve until Week 16, so Jones should have the chance to serve as Tennessee's top wideout again in what projects to be a more competitive matchup in Week 15 against Pittsburgh.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Officially off IR

    Jones (hamstring) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. It was reported earlier in the day Jones would be activated off injured reserve and the Titans made it official later Saturday. The 32-year-old has not played since Week 9, but with A.J. Brown (chest) still on injured reserve, expect the veteran wide receiver to be a critical factor in what figures to be a solid matchup against the Jaguars.

  • Titans' Julio Jones: Likely coming off IR

    Jones (hamstring) is expected to be activated off injured reserve Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Titans have until 4 pm ET to officially activate Jones, but it sure seems as if the veteran wide receiver will have a minimum three-game stay on injured reserve. It's worth pointing out Jones hasn't actually played since Week 9 as the Titans attempted to navigate a fine line between giving the 32-year-old rest and outright removing him from the equation by placing him on injured reserve, but a Week 10 setback forced the team's hand. Expect Jones to take over as the obvious No. 1 target with Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers also mixing into the equation.
