Ravens Sign WR Jacoby Jones

The Ravens Have Their Kick Returner

The Ravens have hauled in a returner and wide receiver.

Baltimore has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with former Texan Jacoby Jones. The deal is reportedly worth $7 million.

Jones is a proven specialteams returner for the Ravens, who are looking to take cornerback Lardarius Webb off those duties and have top kick returner David Reed returning from knee surgery.

Jones returned 49 punts last year for a 10.6-yard average, including a 79-yard touchdown. He didn’t return kickoffs last season, but has 64 career returns for a 23.3-yard average and one touchdown.

Ravens fans may remember Jones, however, for fumbling a punt in the AFC divisional playoff game at M&T Bank Stadium last season that led to a Baltimore touchdown.

A third-round pick in 2007, Jones also adds more competition to the Ravens’ No. 3 wide receiver battle. In 10 starts and 16 games played last year, Jones caught 31 passes for 512 yards and two touchdowns. His career high was in 2010 when he snagged 51 balls for 562 yards and three scores.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder is an explosive downfield threat who will compete with Tandon Doss, LaQuan Williams, David Reed and Tommy Streeter.
