Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel made it clear to Julio Jones from Day 1 that he expects him to be one of the leaders of the team.
Jones, who was taken at No. 6 in the 2011 NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons, changed teams for the first time in his career this offseason when he was traded to the Titans.
Jones has been one of the top receivers over the last decade but he has never won a Super Bowl.
“One thing I told him is, I’m going to hold the best players the most accountable, and hopefully in turn they can do that to the rest of the team,” Vrabel said, via the team’s website. “I’ve always said that is something that we believe in. That’s how I was coached, and that’s what I know. I just wanted to make sure that [Julio] understood that, which he did. It’s something he was very comfortable with. . . . Everything that he has done since he has been a member of our team has been positive.”
