With the trade official, the Titans instantly jump up a notch when it comes to contenders in the AFC. Naturally, the jolt that comes with acquiring a five-time All-Pro receiver got several Tennessee Titans players hyped up.
Fellow wideout A.J. Brown has to be the most excited. After all, he went campaigning on social media for the Titans to bring in Julio Jones multiple times. In addition to the tweet below, Brown also made a TikTok video expressing his desire for Jones to come to Nashville.

Regarding that tweet, the man has certainly got a point. Between Brown, Jones and running back Derrick Henry, this Titans offense is S-C-A-R-Y!!!
