A.J. Brown has long been an admirer of Julio Jones, so you can probably guess how the Tennessee Titans star felt when he learned on Sunday that the seven-time Pro Bowler is about to become his teammate.

The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to a deal to send Jones to Tennessee for draft picks, according to multiple reports. Brown could not contain his excitement and shared an awesome photo on Twitter of him, Derrick Henry, and Jones in a photoshopped Titans jersey. He included a very simple message for the rest of the NFL.

Brown was one of several Titans players who openly recruited Jones when the Falcons began shopping the 32-year-old around. He also had a very public show of respect for Jones prior to a game last year.

With Brown and Jones as his top two receiving options and Derrick Henry behind him, Ryan Tannehill should be in for a huge year. Brown certainly is not the only one in Tennessee who is excited.
