New Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones apparently had "no clue" that he was on television when he received a call from Fox Sports 1's Shannon Sharpe during a live taping last month, according to SI.com.
Sharpe, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, called Jones during FS1’s “UNDISPUTED” on May 24 to ask him about his relationship with the Atlanta Falcons, the team Jones spent the first 10 seasons of his NFL career with.
“Oh man, no, I’m outta there, man.” Jones said. He also said he had no interest in suiting up for the Dallas Cowboys because he wanted to play for a contender.

The seven-time Pro Bowler was traded to Tennessee on Sunday.
Tennessee will send a 2022 second-round draft pick and a 2023 fourth-round selection to Atlanta with the Titans receiving a 2023 sixth-round pick from the Falcons.
Jones, 32, is slated to make $15.3 million this season, as part of a three-year, $66 million contract extension he signed with the Falcons in 2019.
