“#11 until I retire . I tried to give it up and he wouldn’t take it . 尊重,” Brown wrote.

The Falcons agreed to trade Jones and a 2023 sixth-round pick to the Titans in exchange for a 2022 second-round pick and a fourth-rounder in 2023. The trade became official on Sunday.


Jones will join Brown and All-Pro running back Derrick Henry to form one of the league’s most potent offenses. As soon as the news broke, 棕色 took his thoughts to Twitter to acknowledge his new teammate.

Last season, Jones was limited to nine games due to injuries. He hauled in 51 的接待 771 receiving yards and three touchdowns. 琼斯, a seven-time Pro Bowler, led the league in receiving in 2015 和 2018, and when healthy, he continues to be one of the best players at his position.

It made sense for the Falcons to move on from the 32-year-old wide receiver, 然而, since they have a superstar in the making at wideout in Calvin Ridley. And with the No. 4 overall pick, the Falcons took Florida tight end Kyle Pitts to bolster their offensive skill positions for quarterback Matt Ryan.

Jones signed a three-year, $ 66 million contract before the start of the 2019 季节. He is expected to be a $ 23 million cap hit in 2021, according to Spotrac.
