Titans Part Ways With Veteran Receiver Julio Jones


NASHVILLE – The Titans have parted ways with receiver Julio Jones.

The Titans on Thursday officially released Jones, and in paperwork filed to the league the team listed him as a post-June 1 designation, which means the Titans will carry the cap hit until June 1.

Jones played just one season with the Titans after being acquired in a trade last offseason with the Atlanta Falcons.

In 10 regular season games for the Titans in 2021, Jones caught just 31 passes for a career-low 434 yards and a touchdown. Jones also caught six passes for 62 yards in the team's playoff game against the Bengals.

A seven-time Pro Bowler, Jones tallied 12,896 receiving yards and 60 touchdowns in his 10-year career with the Falcons.

The Titans have now released five players this offseason.

In addition to Jones, the team has also released guard Rodger Saffold, tackle Kendall Lamm, running back Darrynton Evans and cornerback Jackrabbit Jenkins. Those moves allowed the team to re-sign outside linebacker Harold Landry and Ben Jones to multi-year contract extensions, while clearing salary cap space for other moves as well.
