Tennessee Titans wideout Julio Jones will make his debut with the Titans against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and he’s already raving about his connection with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. 

"I feel great about me and (Tannehill),"Jones said on Friday. "That’s what practice is for. We had enough time out here on the playing field to get some work in.”

Jones came to the Titans in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons this offseason, and WynnBET thinks he will make an immediate impact. Not only is Tennessee the favorite to win the AFC South, but Jones is projected to pick up 66.5 receiving yards with the over (-115) and under (-116) on his prop essentially set as a pick’em. 

Fellow wideout A.J. Brown is projected 67.5 yards, showing just how important Jones will be to the Titans passing attack this season. Jones is also projected to pick up 5.5 catches, although the over on that prop is a major underdog at +110 odds

“Ryan is definitely a great leader for the ball club," Jones said of building rapport with Tannehill. "Me just communicating with him. He’s very understanding. Just a pro. Just a quarterback and receiver thing. Just communication, just talking. I think it’s very important.”

Tannehill has gone 18-8 as the Titans’ starting quarterback over the past two seasons, including an 11-5 finish in the 2020 campaign. Adding Jones to the roster not only gives Tannehill another weapon on the outside, but it should help open running lanes for Derrick Henry as well. 

The Titans have gotten a little disrespect in WynnBET’s Super Bowl odds, but they could make a statement with a big Week 1 win over a playoff-hopeful Arizona Cardinals team. 

Tennessee is currently a three-point home favorite in Week 1.
