NFL: Julio Jones is not spared by his Titans coach Mike Vrabel

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was not kind to new team receiver Julio Jones in the wake of the 38-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Vrabel strongly criticized a penalty received by the receiver in the first quarter. With a more than affordable third try, Jones shoved cornerback Byron Murphy and even threw a shot at him. The Titans had to go back 15 yards on the streak and then missed the third down. They were already shooting 10-0 at the score at the time.

“This is a critical error. It is absolutely not something that we teach. So it falls into the category of stupid gestures that hurt the team and bold in addition. We went from a third and a yard to third and 16 yards, ”said Vrabel on Monday.

The 32-year-old Jones had just three catches for 29 yards in his official debut with the Titans. Last season, the receiver had 771 yards and scored three touchdowns in nine games.
