4. Julio Jones

It has been an underwhelming go at things lately for Julio Jones. After solidifying himself as one of the top receivers in the NFL early in his career with the Atlanta Falcons, he fell off the map.

After 10 seasons in Atlanta, he was traded to the Tennessee Titans, where he caught 31 passes for 464 yards and 1 touchdown. The Titans won the AFC South with a 12-5 record but lost to the eventual ACF-winning Cincinnati Bengals in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Then Jones signed a one-year deal to join Tom Brady with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in what would be Brady's final year of his legendary career. Jones' team was once again bounced from the playoffs in the divisional round, this time at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys.

The Eagles signed Jones in October of the 2023-24 season to bring depth to a receiving core trying to find health and stability. He played in 11 games but caught just 11 passes. Luckily, three of those passes were for touchdowns.

Jones suffered a third straight loss in the playoffs when the Eagles got blown out by Jones' former team, the Buccaneers, in the wild-card round.

Now entering what would be his 14th season, if he chooses to continue, Jones will be looking for another reserve, veteran opportunity to capture a Super Bowl ring with another contender. But expect the Eagles to pass on Jones' services this time as they look for stability from within.
