Tennessee Titans receiver A.J. Brown is doubling down on his recruiting pitch to Falcons wideout Julio Jones, who pretty much said this week his time in Atlanta is all but over.
Brown, you may have heard, posted a message to Instagram on Tuesday admitting that he is willing to let Jones take over as the team’s No. 1 receiver, if he is able to orchestrate a trade to Tennessee, of course.
Brown, though, followed it up with a more creative recruiting pitch taking to social media to post a comical video.
In the video, Brown pumped up Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry and then shifted the focus to himself.
“I’m going to sell you on some things right here listen to me closely,” Brown said in the message to Jones. “Then me, I’m up-and-coming. Pro Bowl, Year 2. Not a big deal, kind of a big deal, but not really. OK scratch that. Anyway, whatever.
“And you the GOAT of our era, of our receivers,” Brown continued. “Help me help you. Come home Julio. Come home.”
Brown is far from the only high-profile NFL player who has tried to recruit Jones. Patriots offensive lineman Trent Brown and running back Damien Harris also have made their opinions known on social media, too.
Jones likely won’t be traded until at least June 1 given the Falcons’ cap situation, which gives Brown plenty of time to come up with more creative videos.
