Julio Jones doesn’t focus on numbers with the Titans: “I’ve never been a statistician.”
Julio Jones is not worried about joining the Titans. He is not worried about the decline he may have in production after joining his new team.
In his career, Jones averaged 9.8 goals and 95.5 yards per game, and is the last good mark to reach the highest average in NFL history. But in discussing his expectations in Tennessee, the former Falcons receiver focused on one thing.
“At the end of the day, you want to create a winning culture. However, you have to do the work,” Jones said first zoom press conference with the media. “My whole career, I’ve never been a statistician. I’m on the team. I’ll do what they need of me, and I’ll like to play my role at a high level.”
That’s definitely good news for Titan. Tennessee will feature Jones, AJ Brown, Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill as a potential offensive lineman.
With so many weapons available in the Titan attack, they may be looking to expand the ball quite a bit. Their crime has also worsened at times due to Henry, so there were some questions about how Jones could be reduced to meet a target quota.
The team believes Jones should be willing to make an impact, no matter how many targets he is targeting.
“His goal is to win, nine goals, two goals or none at all,” said Jon Robinson of Titan GM. “That’s the way he thinks and the way we want it here.”
