The deal is done, or at least the agreement is.
The Falcons have announced that the team has agreed to terms on a trade that will send receiver Julio Jones to the Titans. Atlanta gets Tennessee’s second-round pick in 2022 and fourth-round pick in 2023. The Titans get Jones and Atlanta’s sixth-round pick in 2023.
Jones, as the Falcons note in their press release, exists as the franchise’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yardage, and 100-yard games. He’s a seven-time Pro Bowler, a two-time All-Pro, and a member of the NFL’s all-decade team of the 2010s.
He appeared in 135 games with the Falcons, catching 848 passes for 12,896 yards and 60 touchdowns.
Jones presumably will be required to pass a physical before the transaction becomes official. The Titans will also need to do a little salary-cap magic to absorb Jones’ $15.3 million charge foe 2021. Barring something entirely unexpected at this point, Jones is a Titan.
