NASHVILLE - New Titans receiver Julio Jones will wear ... No. 2 with the Titans.

Jones, who wore No.11 during his 10 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, turned down new teammate A.J. Brown's offer to take No.11 from him.

Jones wore No. 8 at the University of Alabama.

The Titans traded for Jones over the weekend.

It may not be this simple, but 1 + 1 does equal 2...

A 6-foot-3, 220-pounder, Jones has 12,896 receiving yards and 60 touchdowns in his 10-year career, on 848 catches. He's caught over 100 passes in three of his seasons, and he had at least 80 catches and 1,300 yards in every year from 2014-19, with an average of 104 receptions for 1,565 yards during that time period.

Brown was named a Pro Bowler in 2020 after his second straight 1,000-yard season. In two NFL seasons, Brown has 2,126 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns.
