While Jones may be “out of here” (“here” meaning “Atlanta”), he also might want to leave “here” meaning “this earthly plane” as long as he’s going to continue to be inundated with messages from the Titans star, all of which the wideout is making public.
Per industry sources, the Titans and Patriots might be the two top teams in the running for Jones’ services, two extremely unpalatable options for Colts fans. New England has the requisite cap space, need, and Jones’ reported preference to play with Cam Newton to parlay in their chase, but Brown has an intense training partnership with the Falcons legend, too.
He’s used that relationship to make a series of odd public pleas for the wideout to come to Tennessee on the other side of his personal field.
It started off with a leaked Instagram DM. Gee, how’d that get out? Oh, Brown screen-recorded his own phone and tweeted it.
Indianapolis Colts fans better hope AJ Brown’s chase for Julio Jones doesn’t work.
Wow, nothing between March 2019 and now, huh? How strong is this relationship anyway?
As we all know, as long as the offers end up being comparable, Jones is going to end up choosing the team that sends him the best audio messages surreptitiously via Instagram DM. Everyone knows this.
It’s an especially great strategy considering this past week has shown us exactly how much Jones enjoys being surprised on the phone.
The recruiting pitch didn’t stop there, though. Brown moved on from sending coded messages and then leaking them to the general public to straight up making fan art TikToks, standing in front of a green screen, and pitching Jones much less directly.
Should Julio Jones head to the Titans? Like and subscribe, and leave a comment if you’re getting a little weirded out by this.
Is it even worth accusing a player of tampering if the entire world could make the same accusation? “Yeah, we’re fining you for … what you’re doing on every social media platform all the time everyday.”
The Colts should absolutely hope Jones stays far away from Tennessee, where he could make the team’s offense so lethal that even their defense couldn’t undo a deep playoff run. Maybe it’s time for you to make a MySpace next, AJ? A Julio-themed set of negative Yelp! reviews? The social media world is your oyster.
