Julio Jones tells those questioning his health to “stay tuned”

Wide receiver Julio Jones took part in his first practice with the Titans on Thursday and then met the media for the first time since being traded to the team by the Falcons.

Jones came to Tennessee with a 2023 sixth-round pick in exchange for 2022 second- and 2023 fourth-round selections. That price likely have been higher if not for Jones’ $15.3 million salary and his recent injury history.

Jones was limited to nine games with hamstring injuries last season and said Thursday that he thinks he came back from the initial injury too quickly last season. He said he believes that there’s a lot left in the tank and sent a message to anyone doubting he can stay on the field.

“For those questioning my health, stay tuned,” Jones said.

Jones had only missed four games over the previous six seasons, so last season was either an outlier or a sign of things moving in the wrong direction. The Titans made a bet on the former and Jones is confident he’ll make it a winner.

  1. Well of course. To “wait and see” is all anyone can do, including the Ravens and even Julio himself. So yeah, we will all wait and see.

  2. Love me some Julio, but he looked broken down the past few years. I’ll take the under.

  3. Julio will have a monster year because he have himself a year off to prepare to leave Atlanta…total tool

  4. His last injury is water under the fridge. Loving all the jealous fans clutching at straws saying he’s injury prown. Titans now have the best wr tandem in the league. That’s 2 #1s in Brown and Jones.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say not only does Tampa Bay have the best WR tandem….but they have daily the best overall receiving corps in the NFL….and it’s not even close

  6. Titans gambled for sure and they gambled twice. The numbers on missed games are misleading as Julio played a very reduced role due to injury in many games he did play.

    IF Julio continues to decline – the Titans over paid.

    IF Julio returns to his old HoF self – Titans will have to back up the money truck next offseason to keep him. Julio will want more money – guaranteed.

  7. He probably could have played last season and Falcons should investigate him faking an injury to basically voiding the remainder of his time there. Sounds like shadiness Julio if that’s the case.

  8. Make them a winner???
    Didn’t they already have a winning team?? That is the problem with these divas, they think they are the reason why the game is played.

  9. Yeah Julio has a habit of playing possum. Check the record and see how many games against the Saints he was he missed claiming he was “hurt”.

  10. I hurt my back shoveling topsoil, and I’m only 60. Julio is doomed.

  11. Julio Jones may start the season healthy, but it won’t last! Not because he’s out of shape or injury prone, but because Tannehill is throwing him the ball. T-Hill is a body thrower and he rarely hits his target in stride. He also struggles to anticipate when a play will come open and waits for it to happen. In Miami he couldn’t keep a receiver healthy to save his life. Constantly throwing behind them forcing them to stop and take a serious hit. Then waiting for a receiver to be open then letting it go and the secondary catches up and lays him out. If Julio wanted to stay healthy he’s playing for the wrong team.
