However, there is no clarity as to which team might be able to get him. For Jones, he will be hoping that his move comes through sooner rather than later. There is one player, though, who is actively trying to recruit him to his team.

That would be AJ Brown. Brown has been actively using social media to recruit Julio Jones to play for the Tennessee Titans. Earlier, he privately texted Jones on social media, before sharing those messages to the world.

And now, Brown has upped the ante with his approach. He put out a video on popular platform ‘TikTok’, where he explained why the wide receiver should come to Tennessee and ‘vibe with him’, selling him on the rest of the team he will have around him.
