See it: Titans' Julio Jones wears Waffle House cleats to practice
Before Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones entered the NFL as the first-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in 2011, he garnered the nickname “Waffle House” because he’s always open.
Anyone who has ever been to a Waffle House knows how great they are, and that the restaurant is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is a pro-Waffle House website, by the way, so we won’t hear any slander about it.
The Titans held their first practice of training camp on Wednesday and Jones could be seen sporting a pair of Waffle House cleats — and we’re all about it.
So far during his 11-year career, Jones has lived up to his moniker as he is one of the best wide receivers of his generation and a first ballot Hall of Famer.
There have been some doubts about his future viability, though. The veteran is 32 years old and some have questioned if he could be on the downside of his career, and past injuries have also become a concern.
However, it’s important to note that Jones, who missed seven games due to injury last season, was still producing at an elite level when healthy in 2020.
Not to mention, with A.J. Brown in the mix, Jones won’t have to carry the load in Nashville and instead could serve as a No. 2 option in the Titans’ offense.
