With Julio Jones deal, Titans GM Jon Robinson jumps back in batter’s box and takes another mighty swing

    If the 2020 offseason had been a boxing round, Titans general manager Jon Robinson would have staggered back to his corner bruised and bloodied.

    Signing Jadeveon Clowney? A strong jab, square to Robinson’s nose. Signing Vic Beasley? A thunderous blow to the midsection. Drafting Isaiah Wilson in the first round? A roundhouse bomb to the noggin, damn near a knockout punch.

    But give credit where credit is due. Robinson is a man of action, hardly the type to sit on the sidelines and idly hope his team gets better.

    So on Sunday morning, Robinson stepped right back into the center of the ring and threw what appears to be the biggest haymaker of his Titans tenure. He landed likely future Hall of Fame wide receiver Julio Jones, who brings 848 career catches, 12,896 receiving yards and 60 touchdowns to the Titans’ table.

    1. Thanks, Shovik … Yes, I think Robinson is at times a victim of his own success. He’s done so well turning the franchise around that the fans’ expectations are much higher. Some of them have either forgotten — or never knew — how bad things used to be.
