A one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was signed by wide receiver Julio Jones on Wednesday.

After a disappointing season with the Tennessee Titans where he was a member of seven Pro Bowls, Jones will join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an additional weapon for Tom Brady.

Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Tyler Johnson, Scotty Miller, and Breshad Perriman all return to the Buccaneers' receiving corps, and the team also signed former Falcons Russell Gage and Scotty Miller during the summer.

Godwin had ACL surgery in the offseason to repair a torn ligament. It was decided not to put him on the PUP list before camp started, but a source informed ESPN that they will be cautious before allowing him to participate in drills.

In the wake of Rob Gronkowski's retirement, the Buccaneers signed veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph last week.

Jones was released by the Titans in March of this year, only one season after the Falcons traded him to the team.

For the sake of a more balanced passing offence, Tennessee gave up two draught picks to get him last year.

His career lows of 31 receptions for 434 yards and one touchdown reception were due to injuries, which limited him to just 10 games.

Jones was out for the second year in a row due to injury. In 2020, he only played in nine games for the Falcons.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also waived tight end Codey McElroy on Tuesday because of an injury. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, McElroy will have foot surgery this week.
