Titans GM Jon Robinson: Julio Jones Hasn’t “Lost Anything”
June 7Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
The Titans made a splash on Sunday by acquiring Jones from the Falcons, and they have high hopes heading into this season. General Manager Jon Robinson told NBC Sports’ Peter King, “based on our evaluation of him, he’s healthy and doesn’t look like he’s lost anything to us.” The big issue with Jones last season was injuries, which limited him to just nine games. However, he was still productive when on the field, averaging 85.7 yards per game and a career-best 11.3 yards per target.
Jones will join up with A.J. Brown to form arguably the best 1-2 punch in the league at wide receiver. Derrick Henry is also coming off a 2,000 yard rushing season, so the Titans’ offense has the potential to be scary next season. That said, all three players may have slightly lower fantasy outlooks by playing together. The big winner could be Ryan Tannehill. He now has two game-breaking wide receivers to target if teams load up to stop Henry.
