Julio Jones isn’t worried about fitting in with the Titans. He is also not concerned about any possible drop in production after joining his new team.
During his career, Jones has averaged 9.8 goals per game and 95.5 receiving yards per game, and the latter mark is good for the highest average in NFL history. But when talking about his expectations in Tennessee, the former Falcons catcher only focused on one thing.
“At the end of the day, you want to create a winning culture. Regardless of how you do it, you have to get the job done,” Jones said in his Zoom’s first press conference with the media. “In my entire career, I’ve never been a statistics guy. I’m a team guy. Whatever you need from me, I’ll do it, and I’ll enjoy playing my role at a high level.”
This is certainly good news for the Titans. Tennessee has the makings of a potential offensive monster that will feature Jones, AJ Brown, Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill.

With so many weapons now available in the Titans offense, they are likely looking to spread the ball around a bit. His offense has also leaned toward runs at times because of Henry, so there were some questions about how Jones can respond to a decreased goal percentage.
The team believes Jones should be prepared to make an impact, no matter how many targets he’s absorbing.
“His goal is to win, whether it takes nine goals, two goals or none,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson said. “That’s the mindset that he has and the mindset that we want here.”
