The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing receiver Julio Jones, The Athletic confirmed.

The Titans released Jones in March after he spent one season with the franchise.

With Tampa Bay, Jones joins a receiving corps led by four-time Pro Bowler Mike Evans and one-time Pro Bowler Chris Godwin. Earlier this offseason, the Bucs also signed Russell Gage, who caught 66 passes for the Falcons last season. Tampa Bay begins training camp Wednesday.

Jones caught 31 passes for 434 yards and a touchdown in the 10 games he played with Tennessee, struggling with injuries throughout the season. He joined the Titans via a trade with the Falcons prior to the start of the 2021 season.

Tennessee sent Atlanta two draft picks, including a 2022 second-round selection, in exchange for the WR last June.
