The Atlanta Falcons are finally expected to trade All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones on Monday, as first reported by ESPN’s Dianna Russini. The Tennessee Titans will acquire Jones.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the trade details.

Jones became available this offseason as the Falcons have taken measures to adjust their salary cap. The Titans lost Corey Davis in free agency and could have been considered thin at the wide receiver position. Pairing Jones with AJ Brown and Josh Reynolds — who the Kansas City Chiefs had reportedly been interested in — they are no longer thin.

The Titans are just a year removed from playing the Chiefs in the AFC title game. Their most recent season ended when they lost to the Baltimore Ravens in last year’s Wild Card round.

The Chiefs are scheduled to play the Titans in Week 7 of the upcoming season. The game will take place on Sunday, October 24 at Noon Arrowhead Time in Tennesee.
