Jacoby Jones signs two-year deal with Chargers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Former Ravens wide receiver and kick returner Jacoby Jones has signed a two-year deal with the Chargers, according to the team's official website. He will make up to $5.5 million, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Jones, 30, was released by the Ravens last week before he visited the Bengals, Titans and Chargers. He made several key plays during the Ravens' second championship run, including two touchdowns in Super Bowl XLVII. His 70-yard touchdown grab in the divisional round against Denver helped force overtime. Baltimore eventually won that game, 38-35, en route to Super Bowl XLVII.

Jones had nine receptions for 131 yards and six first downs in 2014, but averaged 30 yards per kick return. He has returned five kickoffs and four punts for touchdowns in his career.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Free agent wide receiver Jacoby Jones is scheduled to visit with the Chargers Thursday, according to U-T San Diego.

Jones, who was cut by the Ravens last week, has also visited with the Bengals and Titans. Jones had nine receptions for 131 yards and six first downs in 2014, but averaged 30 yards per kick return.


Report: Jacoby Jones to visit Bengals, Titans


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/2/2015) Receiver/returner Jacoby Jones, released by the Ravens last week, is scheduled to visit the Bengals and Titans this week, reports Pro Football Talk. Jones caught just nine passes last year, but averaged 30 yards per kickoff return.

The 30-year-old Jones has returned five kickoffs and four punts for touchdowns in his career.


Ravens release Jacoby Jones, hero during Super Bowl run


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) The Ravens released wide receiver Jacoby Jones on Wednesday, the team announced.

"Jacoby is one of my most favorite players ever to coach, an absolute joy to be around," coach John Harbaugh said.

Jones was primarily used a return specialist in 2014. During the season, he hauled in nine passes for 131 yards, but had 978 kick-return yards with one touchdown. He also had 275 punt-return yards.

"We thank Jacoby for what he did for us," Harbaugh said. "He was invaluable to our success. Opponents, especially on special teams, schemed to stop him. What a compliment to him."

Jones made several key plays during the Ravens' second championship run, including two touchdowns in Super Bowl XLVII. His 70-yard TD grab in the divisional round helped force overtime of a game Baltimore eventually won 38-35.

"We don't win Super Bowl XLVII without Jacoby," Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said via baltimoreravens.com. "You immediately think of the touchdown against Denver in the divisional round and then the big plays in that Super Bowl -- the long touchdown from Joe [Flacco] and the kickoff to open the second half. He also had a big punt return in that game. Jacoby was an outstanding Raven, good teammate on and off the field."


Jacoby Jones a candidate for release


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/3/2015) Ravens receiver/returner Jacoby Jones "is viewed as a potential offseason release, given his diminished role as a wide receiver during the 2014 season," reports the Baltimore Sun. Jones wasn't targeted during the playoffs after catching nine balls for 131 yards in the regular season.

While Jones ranked second in the NFL with a kick return average of 30.6 yards, he also mishandled two punts, the paper said. Jones would cost $3.4 million against the cap in 2015.

If Baltimore releases him after June 1, the team would get $2.5 million in cap space, the paper said.


Ravens list Chris Canty as questionable for Week 16


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Ravens listed defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) as questionable for Sunday’s game at Houston.

Canty has not been able to practice all week.

The Ravens listed the following players as probable: Owen Daniels, Will Hill, Jacoby Jones, Anthony Levine, Kelechi Osemele, Bernard Pierce, Daryl Smith and Terrell Suggs.

The Ravens are 5-point favorites.


Ravens receive contributions from several role players in Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Ravens received some contributions from several role players during Sunday's 34-33 defeat to the Chargers in Week 13.

With Steve Smith held in check and Torrey Smith injured late, Kamar Aiken and Jacoby Jones stepped up in the aerial attack. Aiken came down with three of his four targets for 51 yards and Jones caught all two passes thrown his way for 35 yards. Owen Daniels hauled in two passes for 30 yards.

Meanwhile in the running game, Bernard Pierce carried the ball six times for 16 yards and was held without a grab in the passing game despite being targerted once.


Ravens KR Jacoby Jones scores in Week 9 loss vs. Steelers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones returned a second-half kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown in his team's 43-23 loss to the Steelers.

The Steelers built up a 22-10 lead in the first half and then tacked on another touchdown quickly in the third quarter, but Jones was able to get the score right back for his team and provide the Ravens with a glimmer of hope. It was the fifth career kickoff return for a touchdown for the eight-year veteran. The Ravens will host the Titans in Week 10.


Ravens will keep Jacoby Jones as punt returner


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Ravens will stick with wide receiver Jacoby Jones as their punt rerturner, ESPN reports Thursday. Jones has had some issues turning the ball over as of late. He misled a punt, which bounced off his back in Week 5 against Indianapolis.

"We're going to give him more opportunities to do that because we know he's an elite returner," special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said. "But to be an elite returner, you have to have a ball in your hands. We need to get that fixed, and give him an opportunity to run with it."


Ravens receive contributions from role players in Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Ravens received contributions from several role players in Week 5 against the Colts.

Jacoby Jones muffed a punt in the first half and finished with just one catch for 30 yards. Kamar Aiken caught his only targeted pass for a gain of 8 yards. Kyle Juszczyk and Marlon Brown were each targeted twice but held without a grab in a 20-13 defeat.


Playing time for Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones heading in different direction


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown is starting to see his role increase while Jacoby Jones is trending downward in terms of production, according to the Baltimore Sun on Monday.

Brown, who only earned three snaps in Week 2 against the Steelers, totaled 23 in Week 3 and a season-high 31 snaps on offense in a Week 4 win over the Panthers. He caught all three passes thrown to his for 31 yards.

Meanwhile, Jones, who signed a four-year $12.055 million contract in the offseason, dropped the only pass thrown in his direction on Sunday. He played just seven offensive snaps against Carolina.


Jacoby Jones makes minimal contributions Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones made minimal contributions Week 2 against the Steelers.

Jones caught one pass for 4 yards. He also received one carry for 2 yards. Jones also had two punt returns, including a 33 yard return, during the contest. He'll take on the Browns Week 3. 


Jacoby Jones happy for reunion with Kubiak


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones is happy to be reunited with offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who was his head coach in Houston, reports ESPN.

Jones even referred to Kubiak as his "biological father" because he never knew his own.

"I need to get that DNA test," said Jones, who played under Kubiak from 2007 to 2011 in Houston. "I'm going to steal his coffee and swab the cup and figure it out. I have to make sure. I hope my mother doesn't see this. She'll kill me."

Jones just hopes Kubiak gives him more time on offense in Baltimore. In five seasons in Kubiak's offense, Jones only caught more than 31 passes in a season once. While he's been a playmaker for the Ravens, he still only has a combined 67 catches in two seasons.

Jones would like more of a chance to play receiver, but it will be tough after the Ravens added wide receiver Steve Smith and tight end Owen Daniels to go along with Torrey Smith, Dennis Pitta and Marlon Brown. Jones may find himself No. 6 on Joe Flacco's pecking order this season.

"[I'm] trying to be one of the best receivers in the league," Jones said. "[I'm going to] try and play my role when they call my number, to show [I can] make that play."


Ravens have options at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that Marlon Brown still has a chance to be a quality playmaker even though the team added Steve Smith this offseason and brought back Jacoby Jones. Torrey Smith is also there as the No. 1 receiver.

"He's competing for a starting spot," Harbaugh said. "It's not a two-receiver league anymore. It’s not like you’ve got your two starters and then your No. 3 guy is a slot receiver. That’s the way that people kind of want to label it. It’s just more complex than that. And with Jacoby, you’ve got four guys right there that are going to play a lot of football. And one thing I think (offensive coordinator) coach (Gary) Kubiak does a great job of is he understands how to put guys in a position to play to their strengths. He knows Jacoby very well, and Jacoby has only gotten better since he's been here. He's matured as a player and a person. Steve Smith has certain things that he does extremely well. So does Marlon Brown, and Marlon's going to obviously, I would think, make leaps and bounds from Year 1 to Year 2. ... Gary’s got some guys that he’s excited to work with, so I can't wait to see how he uses them."


Joe Flacco, receivers to get early start


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will work out with his receivers before the team's offseason program.

"Joe has communicated that through texts, and Torrey [Smith] has told me that they have a session planned and are trying to work out the dates," coach John Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings. "I'll be looking forward to seeing how it goes. It is important. It's big."

Flacco's receiving corps includes Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones and tight end Dennis Pitta. Flacco threw 19 touchdowns and a career-high 22 interceptions last year.


Giants checking out Ted Ginn?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The Giants have shown interest in free agent receiver Ted Ginn, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Ginn is an option for the Giants after missing on Jacoby Jones, who re-signed with the Ravens. Ginn had 556 receiving yards despite limited snaps and revitalized the return game for the Panthers last season, averaging 23.8 yards per kick return and 12.2 yards per punt return. 

Ravens re-sign Jacoby Jones to four-year deal


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2014) The Ravens re-signed receiver/returner Jacoby Jones to a four-year deal on the same day he visited the Giants, reports ESPN. It's a $14 million contract with $4.5 million guaranteed.

Jacoby Jones checking out Giants


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2014) Free agent receiver/returner Jacoby Jones is visiting the Giants on Wednesday, reports ESPN.com. The Ravens are trying to re-sign Jones, who reportedly has drawn interest from a total of four teams.

Report: Ravens make offer to Jacoby Jones


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The Ravens are interested in keeping wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Jones and have made him an offer, but no agreement is imminent, sources have told the Baltimore Sun.

Jones played in 12 games and started nine last season. He caught 37 passes for 455 yards and two touchdowns.


Ravens need 'move-the-chains' receiver


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/26/2014) Asked what the Ravens' offense lacks, wideout Torrey Smith mentioned a "move-the-chains" receiver like Anquan Boldin. Of course, Baltimore traded Boldin following its Super Bowl victory last year.

“I don’t want to say an Anquan, but just a guy that’s like a move-the-chains guy," Smith told the Baltimore Sun. "That’s probably someone that we need on a consistent basis. Another weapon like that is just another person that Joe [Flacco] can rely on.”

Second-year pro Marlon Brown returns to the receiving corps, while Baltimore could lose unrestricted free agent Jacoby Jones and restricted free agent Tandon Doss. The other four receivers on the roster -- Deonte Thompson, Kamar Aiken, Gerrard Sheppard and Aaron Mellette – all are unproven, the report said.


Gary Kubiak awaits renewing ties with Jacoby Jones


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Gary Kubiak cut Jacoby Jones in the 2012 offseason. That leads one to wonder about his thoughts about Jones now that they are together with the Ravens, for whom Kubiak is now the offensive coordinator.

"I've got a great relationship with Jacoby," Kubiak told ESPN. "I don't want to say I was like a father figure to him, but he was like one of my children. We went through Jacoby's early career, where he was growing not only as a player, but as a man. I can tell you this: I'm so proud of him. ... I called him right after [the Ravens] won the Super Bowl. I'm so proud of the man he's become, as well as the player. I look forward to seeing him."

The problem could be financial. Jones earned $4 million this seaon, but has proven more valuable as a returner than a receiver. He managed just 37 catches for 455 yards and two touchdowns.


Ravens likely can't afford to keep Jacoby Jones


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/26/2014) The Ravens will be hard-pressed to re-sign impending free agent receiver/returner Jacoby Jones, reports ESPN.com. While the Ravens would love to bring the Super Bowl hero back because of his playmaking ability, Baltimore "can't pay him another $4 million as a No. 3 receiver and returner," the report said.

Jones, 29, caught 37 passes for 455 yards and two touchdowns. The website expects the Ravens to draft a receiver to play alongside Torrey Smith and Marlon Brown.


Jacoby Jones a non-factor in Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones did not make his presence felt during Sunday’s contest against the Patriots in Week 16.

Jones was targeted twice and held without a grab in the first half. He caught an 11-yard pass in the third quarter for his first reception of the day. He was targeted four times in a 41-7 defeat.

Jones will look to get back on track in Week 17 at Cincinnati. He caught two passes for 17 yards in his previous meeting against the Bengals this season.

Jacoby Jones leads Ravens in receiving


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/17/2013) Receiver Jacoby Jones led the Ravens with six catches for 80 yards in the win at Detroit. He was targeted nine times, second only to Torrey Smith's 12.

Jones had a big first half, catching four of five targets for 53 yards. He saved his biggest play for last. On 3rd-and-15 at the two-minute warning, Jones separated for a 27-yard gain that set up Baltimore's winning field goal.

His six catches represented a season high, and the 80 receiving yards were Jones' second highest total. He added 84 yards on three returns. Jones plays the Patriots in Week 16.


Ravens DST a borderline play Week 15


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/11/2013) The Ravens DST has gone two straight games without a sack entering Monday night's game in Detroit. Baltimore needs defensive end Elvis Dumervil (9 1/2 sacks), who has a chance to return from the ankle injury that sidelined him Week 14. 

Baltimore posted double-digit Fantasy points last week thanks to Jacoby Jones' 77-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. In Week 15, the Ravens face a Lions team that's committed 15 turnovers the past four weeks, giving up double-digit Fantasy points each time. But quarterback Matthew Stafford won't have the same ballhandling problems he faced in snowy Philadelphia.

Even with all those turnovers, Detroit gives up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points (8.9 per game) to opposing DSTs. The Ravens DST averages 7.7 Fantasy points in road games this year. Consider the unit a borderline play Week 15.
