AJ Brown made it clear last offseason how excited he was to teammates with future Hall-of-Famer Julio Jones. It turns out the pairing's time together will cut short after Jones was released by the Titans on Wednesday.

Brown took the chance to thank his now-former teammate on Twitter following the news.

Brown conveyed clear emotion when discussing the year he spent alongside Jones. The Titans' star said Jones taught him "a lot" during their time as teammates and he'll strive to have a similar impact as the seven-time Pro Bowler, who's bound to wind up in Canton once his career is over.

It's touching to hear how much Brown connected with Jones. The latter seemingly embraced a leadership role in his stint with the Titans, and the knowledge Brown was able to gleam could be massive for him going forward.

Now it'll be on Brown to lead the charge for a suddenly barren receiving corps. After starting his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, he's certianly up to the task, but adding a true No. 2 to serve as his running mate is now a must in the NFL Draft or free agency.
