The Titans have created a nice chunk of cap space for the 2021 season by restructuring the deal of wide receiver Julio Jones.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team has converted $14 million of his $15.3 million base salary into a signing bonus. They also added two void years to his current deal, which means that they’ve created $11.2 million in cap space for the coming season.

Jones’ contract runs through the 2023 season and has base salaries of $11.513 million each of the next two years.

Those salaries make it a good bet that we’ll be hearing more about Jones’ contract if he has a good first year with the AFC South team. The contract numbers for wideouts have gone well above those figures and the 32-year-old Jones probably isn’t going to wait until his deal is up to look for one more big payday.

  1. Forgot the Falcons traded the guy. Good luck, Julio. Show everyone you still have gas in the tank.

  2. Isn’t this what got him traded out of ATL in the first place? Yeah, I know he felt disrespected while waiting for that big contract, but Atlanta kept kicking the can down the road until they HAD to extend him. TN is essentially doing the same. Like someone else said, if he puts up big numbers (and he will), is gonna be a mess in Nashville.

  3. May have needed money for his lawyers… Now he has gotten paid… Watch the effort now be lost even more..

  4. NFL fans are so fickle. Lol. Julio is very respected in the NFL. He wants a trade off a bad team late in his career and now he’s a diva? Y’all crazy.

    Btw, we got him hoping he puts up big numbers.
