According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, wide receiver Julio Jones, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection,..

will sign a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and catch passes from Tom Brady next season.

Jones, 33, played with the Atlanta Falcons during the first ten seasons of his career, compiling 12,896 yards and 60 touchdowns in those ten seasons.

He was traded to the Tennessee Titans in June 2021 for a 2022 second-round pick and a switch of 2023 third-day picks.

While playing at Tennessee, Jones only caught 31 passes for 434 yards in 10 games while battling a hamstring ailment.

In the Titans' final game of the regular season, he scored his lone touchdown of the year. The team let go of Jones in March.

Jones will now join the Falcons' division opponent, where he will join wide receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, who have appeared in the Pro Bowl four times each.

With a 13-4 record the previous year, the Buccaneers won the NFC South, but they fell to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Godwin missed the playoffs with a knee injury, and the Buccaneers released receiver Antonio Brown late in the regular season after he lost it in the middle of a game.

Jones needs 670 yards to pass player number 13 and surpass 14,000 career yards, moving up to 17th place in NFL history in terms of receiving yards.
