    Doesn't this sound like somebody is salty their team didn't get him? From roto.

    There are still moving parts, but the Falcons will get Tennessee's second-round pick next year as the centerpiece of the deal. The Titans don’t have the cap space to take on Jones’s full $15.3 million salary, so the they'll have to restructure before it's finalized. Jones gives Tennessee an All-Pro to pair with A.J. Brown after moving on from Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith, and should open up an offense that averaged the third-fewest passing plays per game last season. Ryan Tannehill's deep accuracy doesn't fit with Jones, and Brown's presence won't offer much of an upgrade for Jones in terms of targets, but Jones should have no trouble topping his 51/771/3 line from 2020 if he stays healthy.

    I saw somewhere that Tannehill had a 50% deep throw accuracy %, which was one of, if not the best in the league last year.

    Have to admit that this signing definitely has me excited for the upcoming season. When I first heard Titans were a landing spot for him, I had my doubts, but this morning just made it that much more exciting to get the season started!

    I can see this working out well and actually taking some work off Henry which then gives him some additional years of playing and keeping us as contenders even longer!

    Yup. Tanne ain't Brady, Brees, Peyton, etc and never has been. Hell, in Miami he was a tier 3 QB with guys like Dalton, Goff, Alex Smith, and Kirk Cousins.

    Make a run while everyone remaining is still playing at an elite level.

    Julio still has 2 or 3 more really good years.

    The thing I'm super stoked about is that Julio, Henry and AJ Brown all seem to be great friends. The chemistry is definitely going to be there as they all will make each other succeed.

    Josh Reynolds and Dez Fitzpatrick may not even have anyone covering them now.

    This Julio trade just makes so much sense on many levels.
