News out of Tennessee is that Pro Bowl WR Julio Jones is not expected to return to the roster in 2022.

NFL insiders Dianna Russini and Adam Schefter reported this afternoon that Jones will be released after just one season in Nashville.

Jones missed seven games last year due to injury, but he still performed as one of the team’s top receiving threats when healthy. While he wasn’t on the level of stud pass catcher AJ Brown, Jones was a reliable target that hauled in 31 receptions.

Unfortunately, the 11-year veteran may be on the back end of his career.

Jones has seen a decrease in production each of the last three seasons, dating back to his time in Atlanta. The Titans may not have wanted to take the financial risk on a player that’s been in and out of the lineup over the last few campaigns.

With the news breaking Wednesday, the NFL world is reacting.

Former teammate AJ Brown also reacted to the news with a message to Jones.
