After testing the open market, Jones returned to the Titans on a three-year, $21 million deal. He just finished the final year of his deal and made a base salary of $7 million in 2020. 

In 2020, Jones appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and recorded 49 total tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 53 interior defensive lineman out of 125 qualifying players.
