Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sign Julio Jones

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are loading up their offense for next season as the team announced they have signed veteran wide receiver Julio Jones.

The seven-time Pro Bowl wide out is well known for his days with the Atlanta Falcons and recently as a member of the Tennessee Titans.  Jones signed a one-year deal in Florida and gives Tom Brady another weapon at his disposal.

The 33-year-old Jones is very familiar to the NFC South from his days in 'Hotlanta', spending the first 10 seasons of his career with the Falcons. The team traded him to the Titans for a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 fourth-rounder.

Jones appeared in 10 games for the Titans, as he was limited due to a hamstring injury, something the Bucs will have to be conscious of. He finished the 2021 season with 31 catches for 434 yards and one touchdown. He's likely to see a spike in production receiving balls from one of the very best in the game.

Tampa Bay now has Jones, Chris Godwin coming back from injury, Mike Evans, Russell Gage, Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller rounding out their receiving corps as they appear destined for another great season.
