Jones has a fully guaranteed salary of $15.3 million for the 2021 season.
The 32-year-old is the Falcons’ career leader in catches (848) and yards (12,896) and is second to Roddy White in touchdown receptions (63). His 95.5 receiving yards per game is the best per-game average in NFL history.
The terms of the trade are pending Jones' physical.

The Titans lost wide receiver Corey Davis to free agency earlier this season.
Adding Jones to the mix with A.J. Brown gives quarterback Ryan Tannehill one of the more formidable receiving duos in the NFL. The Titans’ offense also boasts the reigning two-time NFL rushing leader in Derrick Henry.
Titans players weighed in on social media on Sunday morning about the media reports.
