BALTIMORE — After spending two days visiting the Ravens, former Texans wide receiver Jacoby Jones has agreed to a two-year contract.
Needing veteran depth at wide receiver and an experienced return specialist, the Ravens will reportedly pay Jones $7 million over the next two seasons. Jones visited with the Carolina Panthers last week before deciding to join Baltimore on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old gives the offense an established receiver behind starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. The other receivers currently on the roster have combined for just four receptions in their respective NFL careers — all of them made by Maryland product LaQuan Williams.
“Adding Jacoby gives us another proven downfield weapon in our passing game and production with our returns,” Newsome said in an official statement. “His experience makes the offense better, and the competition he brings can help raise our levels at receiver and with punt and kickoff returns.”
Jones has made 127 receptions and caught 11 touchdowns in his five-year career. He is also a capable returner, scoring one touchdown on a kickoff and three punt return scores in his career. The addition of Jones will likely allow the Ravens to remove top cornerback Lardarius Webb as the regular punt returner, a move coach John Harbaugh expressed a desire to make earlier this off-season.
The Ravens also inked fifth-round pick Asa Jackson to a four-year deal on Tuesday afternoon. The Cal Poly cornerback is the first of the organization’s 2012 draft picks to sign a contract.

  1. J.Jones isn’t he the guy that fumbled 2x during the playoff game against Ravens? Don’t we already have D. Reed for that ?

  2. Typical Ravens bonehead move. Instead of drafting a viable WR, we sign another reject (let’s add him to the growing list (Houshmanzadeh, Evans, Stallworth, Hardy, etc.). Their paranoia over worthless WR draft picks really hurts this team’s ability to get to the big game.
