The Julio Jones experiment in Tennessee was short-lived.
the Titans release 33-year-old wide receiver after one season, ESPN reported Wednesday. Jones is expected to be fired with a post-June 1 designation, which would save Tennessee $9.5 million in salary caps.
The Titans gave up a second-round pick and a fourth-round pick to win Jones last year in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons — the team that picked him sixth overall in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Jones was limited to 10 games last season due to injuries and recorded a career-low 31 receptions for 434 yards and just one touchdown.
The seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver appeared in just nine games for the Falcons in 2020 through injury.
Jones has yet to return to his All-Pro level of performance. He is Atlanta’s career leader in catches (848) and yards (12,896) and second in touchdown receptions (63) behind Roddy White.
