Henry and Jones are pals and both went to Alabama, so it’s no surprise they’re working out together. Of course, the timing of this all with the trade rumors going around is sure to make people go crazy with speculation.
The Falcons are looking to trade the 32-year-old wide receiver to alleviate their cap problems. The Titans have some cap issues of their own, so bringing in Jones would be tricky. However, perhaps Tennessee will try to make something happen to add another major weapon to an offense that already has several studs in Henry and A.J. Brown.
Jones missed some time with injuries last season, but he’s still a major asset when healthy. 2020 broke a streak of six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. He’s not far removed from leading the NFL in receiving yards with 1,677 in 2018.
Meanwhile, Henry just rushed for over 2,000 yards in 2020. He also led the league in rushing yards in 2019 with 1,540 and rushed for the most touchdowns in 2019 (16) and 2020 (17).
