Stephen A. Outlines his concerns about the Eagles after their loss to the Jets

Stephen A. Smith breaks down why he sees the Eagles’ loss to the Jets more than the 49ers’ loss to the Browns.

Wide receiver Julio Jones, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday.

Jones, 34, is the son of former Tennessee Titans teammate A.J. Will reunite with Brown, who offered to trade to Tennessee in 2021.

The Eagles recently placed wide receiver Kyuse Watkins on injured reserve with an injury and drafted receivers Marquez Callaway and Desmon Bateman on Monday. Ultimately, they turned to Jones, who is on his fourth team in four years.

Jones’ 13,629 career receiving yards are the most of any active player in the NFL.

In addition to previously playing with Brown at Tennessee, Jones previously played with Eagles receiver Olamide Sackus when he was with the Atlanta Falcons from 2019 to 2020.

Jones is the Falcons’ franchise-record holder for yards (12,896), receptions (848), single-season receptions (136), single-season receiving yards (1,871), 100-yard games (58) and 1,000-yard seasons. (seven).

Jones, who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season, has 50 catches for 804 yards and five touchdowns in seven career games against the Eagles, including the game-winning touchdown in 2019.

Now, he’ll try to bring some to Philadelphia as the Eagles’ potential No. 3 receiver behind Brown and Devonta Smith.
