Reports surfaced on Tuesday that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing veteran wide receiver Julio Jones to a one-year deal. Jones, who spent 10 seasons with the Falcons, joins Tampa with the hope of contending for a Super Bowl alongside quarterback Tom Brady.
Jones, the Falcons’ all-time leading wide receiver, is a seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, and has the most receiving yards (13,330) among active players.
Jones is coming off a season filled with injuries in Tennessee, producing just 31 receptions for 434 yards and one touchdown in 10 games played. Jones returned for the Titans’ playoff run, tallying six catches for 62 yards in their Divisional Round loss to the Bengals.
