Reporters in Nashville (Tennessee) got their first look at Julio Jones in OTAs for the Titans.

After Sunday’s trade with the Atlanta Falcons, the 32-year-old has a new number and new teammates. Despite the transition, he looked good in today’s practice. The seven-time Pro Bowler displayed his footwork, hands, agility, and route concepts on the field.

The combination of Jones, Derrick Henry, and A.J. Brown gives the Titans a potent offense.

If it can be solid defensively and Ryan Tannehill takes another step forward, Tennessee has an opportunity to make a Super Bowl push.

Jones has been on the big stage before, and he will serve as a mentor for others. He still has some productive years left him, but now he wants rings.
