Julio Jones on how Tom Brady recruited him to Bucs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week fielded a massive free agent in multiple first-team All-Pro wide receivers, Julio Jones. The former Crimson Tide standout has been arguably the best receiver in the NFL over the past decade and adds a loaded receiving corps in Tampa.

After spending the first ten years of his career with the Atlanta Falcons, Jones played with the Tennessee Titans in 2021, although he was in and out of the lineup for most of the season due to injury. Jones was then released by the Titans in the 2022 off-season.

Jones spoke with the media about how he ended up in Tampa, and when initially asked what his conversations with Brady were like, Jones laughed and said, “It’s confidential.”

Although Jones later provided a more candid answer on those talks with Brady, “I talked to him, I talked to Tom several times but we were just talking, it wasn’t really about coming to Tampa, We were just communicating, you’re just feeling each other. I guess, it was probably a strategy, but I don’t know, here I am.

Brady will have plenty of weapons outside Jones this season including Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Kyle Rudolph and many more.
