    We are a playoff team with a good QB and many good players on offense. Why would he rather play with the Jets and a rookie QB? He did not get a great deal there.

    Oh I think it was a ******* decision, assuming we offered him a deal.

    But who knows? I can certainly see where he felt being the number 2 receiver on a run first team doesn't give him an adequate chance to increase his value.

    Maybe he wanted to live in New York.

    Who knows? But you can't just assume we had the option of getting him at all, or on the same deal the jets got.

    This might be the most complete offense of the Titans era.

    I'd rather have Julio. Julio was still pacing for 90 catches and 1300 yards last season. Add long as he's healthy, be should be a considerable improvement over Corey Davis, who I would argue is a much more of a risk to get injured given his past.

    Lol he had 800 yards almost in just 9 games last season.

    the guy has played in 135 of 160 games in his career. That’s 84% for an oft injured position too.

    Corey Davis played in 48 of 64 games. 75%.

    Give me the hall of fame WR later in his career over the WR who has never eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving.

    Y’all spent years complaining about Corey’s production and now you’d rather sign him to the same contract as Julio Jones? Lol some of y’all on here are absolutely WILD.

    We had Davis ands saw his inability to beat single coverage against good CBs. He isn't a bad WR but he is a #2 and now we have 2 legit #1 guys. Also a nice hedge if we lose Brown for any period.

    The offense is stacked and not just because of Julio. Evans and Hill give us a stacked RB group with play makers besides Henry and Evans gives us another element to the passing game. We also should be well upgraded at both OT positions compared to what we had last year going into the playoffs. Lewan being back is huge and after watching some of Kelly I realized how bad he was last year. Kelly was not a good zone run blocker lacking the agility and quickness and while not a swinging gate in pass pro he did struggle against better edge guys.

    Yep and there were plenty of those 48 games where he was "banged up" "dealing with lingering injury" etc.
