Jones played for the Tennessee Titans in 2021 after spending most of his career with the Atlanta Falcons. The Titans acquired Jones from Atlanta for a fifth-round pick. He was expected to become a solid duo with AJ Brown on the Titans, but things didn’t really work out that way.

Jones played 10 games for the Titans. He had 31 receptions for 434 yards and a touchdown. He spent some time on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. He would have six catches for 62 yards in Tennessee’s playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this year, and then be released.

Joining the Buccaneers would potentially make him the dynamic target he once was. Potentially, he could be seen as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver on a team that already has Mike Evans and Chris Godwin with high expectations for the likes of Russell Gage, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson.

Throughout his career, Jones was also selected twice as a first-team All-Pro and was named to the Hall of Fame All-2010s team.
