The Tennessee Titans pulled off a blockbuster trade on Sunday, landing superstar wideout Julio Jones from the Atlanta Falcons. Jones has been the discussion of heavy trade rumors for the past couple of months, and the Titans have long been considered a front runner to land him. Now they have, and with Jones in the fold, it creates one of the most dangerous wide receiver duo's in the NFL with A.J. Brown and one of the scariest offenses when you add in reigning rushing champ Derrick Henry.
Tennessee Titans Odds to Win Super Bowl
While the trade hasn't moved the needle yet on the Titans' Super Bowl LVI odds (+3000), you have to imagine some sort of movement in the right direction is on the horizon. They are currently tied for the 14th-best odds to win the Super Bowl next season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
The Titans 2021 win total sits at 9, and their odds to make the playoffs are at -138 for yes. Both of these numbers could see some movement as well once the market settles.
Jones was seemingly the best player available on the trade market post-June 1 and he came at a position of need for a Titans team that watched Corey Davis and Adam Humphries walk in free agency. While Jones isn't quite the receiver he used to be, he is still a major upgrade at the position over those two.
Time will tell how the betting market shapes out, but for now it seems like a lot more people will be fans of this Titans team come the start of the 2021 season.
