In 2020, Weaver totaled 35 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

On Monday, Byard met Jones at Saint Thomas Sports Park when he arrived in Nashville and met with many of his new teammates, coaches and other team officials.
In trading for the former Falcons receiver, the Titans have now assembled a trifecta of weapons as recognizable as any threesome in the NFL in running back Derrick Henry, receiver A.J. Brown, and Jones. Plus, the team has a quarterback in Ryan Tannehill who has played at a Pro Bowl level since arriving in Tennessee. But the players know it's going to take more than names to win games.
Brown has long been an idol of Jones. In fact, after a game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium during the 2019 season, Brown exchanged No.11 jerseys with Jones while saying he models his game after the seven-time Pro Bowler. Brown said he picked No.11 in the NFL because of Jones after wearing No.1 at Ole Miss.
