In ModelBuilder, only says 'precondition' when connecting output of join to process

Hi there,
I'm trying to automate a complicated procedure in ModelBuilder. For some reason, after I do an 'Add Join' it appears that I'm unable to use the output as an input for another process. When I try to connect the output using the 'connect' tool, it only allows me to choose 'precondition'. Obviously, I want to connect it as 'input features' so I can continue the process of my model. Any ideas what's going on here?
