In July, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers created a stir by signing wide receiver Julio Jones, who had spent the previous year with the Tennessee Titans.
Jones joins a group of wide receivers that also includes Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Russell Gage, so it is unclear what will be his role.
However, the Buccaneers are getting a low-risk high-reward deal with a one-year, $6 million contract.
This is the Buccaneers' new standard operating procedure. They appear to enjoy keeping a talented veteran receiver around while Tom Brady is their quarterback. It was Antonio Brown at first, and now it's the far less dramatic Jones.
Jones is coming off an injury-plagued 2021 with the Titans in which he was hampered all year long.
Jones only caught 31 catches for a total of 434 yards and a touchdown.
Just two years ago, he had a season with 99 receptions for 1,394 yards, so it's crucial to keep that in mind.
Jones and Brady might become friends at the age of 33.
He is most likely fourth on the depth chart right now, though.
