Julio Jones is out after one injury-riddled season with the Tennessee Titans.
It’s not a shock: Jones managed just 31 receptions in 10 games, with one TD, this after seven Pro Bowl seasons in nine years with the Falcons.

The best days are surely behind the 33-year-old Jones.

But for teams that believe the 6-3, 200-pound WR has something left in the tank and can still be a physical force on the field; he’s available.


Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his projected NFL odds for which team grabs Julio Jones for the 2022 season.

Jones has led the NFL in receiving yards per game on three occasions. But that average has gone down each of the last four seasons, from 104.8 to 92.9 to 85.7 and to just 43.4 this past season as the WR2 behind A.J. Brown in Tennessee.

There are several teams that could use another WR, and many of them are Super Bowl contenders – something that might interest the veteran without a ring. Jones could get an incentive-laden deal, making him affordable for teams seeing one more weapon.

The Buccaneers top the list for that reason. Tom Brady is back, and the Bucs are stocked at WR, putting less pressure on Jones to find his old form and more on being the best he can be right now.


Similarly, he’d be the No. 2 guy in Green Bay behind Davante Adams and would have Aaron Rodgers throwing to him, the Bills with Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen, and the Chiefs with Tyreek Hill and Patrick Mahomes.

If he wants to play with the opportunity to produce big-time again, the Patriots could top the list. The Bears and Colts are in the market for a productive WR, but questions at quarterback and long-shot contender status give other teams the edge.


Consider, for your NFL betting, that any number of other teams could rise to the challenge and offer more than anyone else in terms of salary, including the Lions, Jaguars, and Jets.
