Ravens, free agent WR Jones agree to 2-year deal
Former Houston Texans wide receiver Jacoby Jones has agreed to
terms with the Baltimore Ravens on a two-year contract.
Jones was cut by the Texans last week. He caught 31 passes for
512 yards and two touchdowns last season, but he also fumbled twice
in Houston’s playoff loss to the Ravens.
The 27-year-old Jones gives depth to Baltimore’s group of
receivers. The Ravens have two established starters in Anquan
Boldin and Torrey Smith, but have no proven option at the third
Jones has 127 catches for 1,741 yards and 11 touchdowns over
five NFL seasons, all of them with the Texans.
Jones also provides an option to cornerback Lardarius Webb as a
punt returner. Jones has three career punt returns for touchdowns
and averages 23.3 yards on kickoff returns.
