Julio Jones says goodbye to Atlanta with classy farewell message
Julio Jones couldn’t leave Atlanta without saying goodbye.
The All-Pro receiver may now be a member of the Tennessee Titans but he still has an emotional attachment to the city where he spent the previous decade rewriting the team’s record books.
During his time in Atlanta, Jones caught 848 passes for 12,896 yards and 60 touchdowns after being selected by the Falcons in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Here is the message Jones issued on his Instagram account:
“Thank you ATL for all the love you’ve shown me over the years. It’s been an amazing 10 years playing for the city and all the fans. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me over the years and will never forget my time as an Atlanta Falcon.
“Excited for the next part of my journey here in Nashville. To the fans, I want to thank you all for the warm welcome for me and my family. We are very excited to be part of the Titans family. Ready to get to work!”
