The Tampa Bay Buccaneers surprisingly signed previous Atlanta Falcons star wideout Julio Jones lately, giving Tom Brady another offensive weapon next the retirement of Rob Gronkowski. Jones has struggled to remain balanced throughout the final couple of many years and played in just 10 game titles very last time with the Tennessee Titans, collecting 31 receptions for 434 yards.
If there is one particular participant who is aware of what Jones is capable of, it is Russell Gage. The WR also signed with the Buccaneers this offseason and was mentored by Julio for 3 seasons in Atlanta. Gage opened up on just how very good Jones could be for Tom Brady and Co. if he really stays nutritious.
“A healthy Julio is a problematic Julio.”
Bucs head mentor Todd Bowles also spoke out on the addition of Julio Jones:
“Signing Julio was not only for the very long haul it was just as considerably performing distinct issues on offense and becoming able to swap (Rob Gronkowski) ‘s catches,” Bowles claimed. “Gronk had a lot of catches and showed up in a whole lot of parts. We’ll technique matters a small bit otherwise since we have bought a bunch of receivers.”
Sure, Tom Brady has a myriad of vast receivers suitable now. But, it is superior to have heaps of choices than limited ones. Gage has been the WR actually standing out in camp so significantly but Julio simply cannot be disregarded. Following all, he’s a 7-time All-Pro and it wasn’t very long ago that he had six straight seasons of 1,000+ yards getting.
Gronk could possibly not be all around any longer, but Tom Brady really should have zero issues generating loads of prospects offensively. There is no scarcity of expertise in the Buccaneers receiver group.
