In demand since being released by the Houston Texans last week, veteran wide receiver Jacoby Jones was reportedly visiting with the Ravens over the weekend.
Jason La Canfora of NFL.com said the 27-year-old was meeting with team officials in Owings Mills on Sunday as the Ravens would like to add another veteran receiver behind starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. Jones’ ability as a returner makes him an attractive option as the Ravens would prefer to replace top cornerback Lardarius Webb as the primary punt returner as well as boost a lackluster kick return game in 2011.
Jones caught 31 passes for 512 yards and two touchdowns for Houston in 2011. The sixth-year receiver caught a 32-yard touchdown pass against Baltimore in Week 6 last season but fumbled two returns in the Ravens’ 20-13 win in the divisional round in January.
Though possessing good size at 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds, the 2007 third-round pick never fully established himself as a receiver in Gary Kubiak’s system. In five seasons with Houston, Jones registered 127 receptions for 1,741 yards and 11 touchdowns. His best season as a receiver came in 2010 when he hauled in 51 passes for 562 yards and three touchdowns.
