“The vague allegations against SLW Holdings LLC and it’s members Roddy White and Julio Jones are meritless,” Emanuel said. “In May, SLW obtained a temporary restraining order in a related civil case to prevent unlawful conduct involving Genetixs LLC. In reply, the defendants argued conspiracy theories that were not proven by evidence in court, nor were they substantiated before any agency. Attorney Rafe Emmanuel, who represents Jones through White’s company, called the allegations “meritless” in a statement provided to The Tennessean earlier this week. “We look forward to again defending these conspiracy theories against my clients in court.”

“It’s been good, man,” Jones said of his transition to the Titans. “Just the team, coach Vrabel. Everything he’s done for me to make the transition so easy for me. My teammates here. The staff. Just everybody here is so welcoming. It feels like home. It’s not like you’re here and it’s just like, ‘what am I supposed to do? What am I supposed to do?’ There are so many people here to help you, to help you understand the locker room, the facility. Just everything. The transition for me has been very, very easy. “I was blown away when I got here,” Jones continued. “Just continuing to keep working, man. Just creating that family.” Jones also spoke highly of his growing relationship with Titans wide receivers coach Rob Moore.
The Pro-Bowl wide receiver had an off-day Friday, but has gone through individual drills the other three days of training camp thus far. He’s been held out of team drills, and has spent portions of practice with fellow star A.J. Brown working on the timing of his routes and communication with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. On the field, Jones said he’s acclimating well with the Titans, who he feels have embraced him with open arms.
