According to Schefter, Jones had interest from the Buccaneers and Packers, but Tampa Bay was ultimately the more aggressive team in the end. 

The Buccaneers now have a deep receiving corps that consists of Jones, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Tyler Johnson and Russell Gage.

Jones, 33, was a first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2011. He was in the fifth year of his six-year, $81.432 million contract that includes $47 million guaranteed when he agreed to a three-year, $66 million fully guaranteed contract extension in 2019. 

The Falcons traded Jones to the Titans with three years remaining on that deal. He was set to make a base salary of $15.3 million in 2021 when he restructured his deal.

Jones was set to make a base salary of $11,513,000 for the 2022 season when the Titans designated him as a post-June 1 cut. 

In 2021, Jones played in 10 games recording 31 catches for 434 yards and one touchdown.
