Julio Jones has a new team, and now he has a new number.

The star receiver will wear No. 2 with the Titans, the team announced Tuesday night.

Jones wore No.11 during his 10 seasons with the Falcons, but he turned down new teammate A.J. Brown‘s offer to take that number with the Titans.

Jones wore No. 8 at the University of Alabama, a number currently worn by rookie punter James Smith with the Titans. So Jones could have had No. 8 if he wanted.

Jones gives the Titans a “dynamic duo” at receiver. Brown made the Pro Bowl in 2020 after his second consecutive 1,000-yard season, and Jones has made seven Pro Bowls and has seven 1,000-yard seasons.

  1. He took a number that will remind everyone what they paid in draft capital to get him. It could be great, or it could be a negative reminder…we shall see.

  2. Wish I could get a 1965 Denver Bronco jersey of Cookie Gilchrist wearing #2

  3. Quintorris Lopez “Julio” Jones Jr. should have chosen “00” like Houston Oiler, Ken Burroughs.

  4. So the Falcons will have to buy back all of the Julio Jones replica jersey inventory now, right? Oh yeah, that only applies to the players who decide to change their number after this past season. You’re all good, Mr. Blank. Put that checkbook away.

  5. Number 2 on the field number 1 on the injury report… just kidding. Still dont see the value in this move over davis, but Julio will move a lot of jerseys.
