The Tennessee Titans just traded for Julio Jones. It’s real, you guys. The former Atlanta Falcons star is bringing his All Pro abilities to the reigning AFC South division winner.
Both Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry, both seem pretty hyped about the acquisition. Jones’ newest quarterback got the message from the Titans’ official Twitter page, letting out a hyped scream both in GIF and tweet form.

While Tannehill will be the direct beneficiary with Julio Jones as a primary target for his passes, Derrick Henry might stand to benefit a hell of a lot from the transaction too. Last year’s All Pro running back reacted after the trade in just typical Derrick Henry fashion, posting workout pics and a story of them together training from just last week on his Instagram story.
Jones hasn’t even passed his physical yet Henry’s already flexing the work they’re putting in together as a sign of what’s to come. The Titans’ dominant running back gets an equally dominant force flanking him as a receiving threat, making their offense basically pick your poison in terms of how they want to score on their opponents.
Jones joins A.J. Brown to form a lethal pass-catching tandem that could rival virtually any other in the NFL. Brown was named a Pro Bowler in his sophomore season, totaling 1075 yards gained in 14 games played, pulling down 11 touchdowns for the Titans.
There’s a lot to be excited about if you’re a Titans fan.
