Chargers KR Jacoby Jones says he's lost nine pounds.
Jones reported to camp at 211 after checking in at 220 last season. Perhaps it will add an extra element of elusiveness to Jones' returns, but he isn't ticketed for a role on offense. Aug 4 - 4:36 PM

Date:

Chargers signed WR/KR Jacoby Jones, formerly of the Ravens, to a two-year, $5.5 million contract.

Jones, 31 in July, should provide a spark to the Bolts' return game after they finished 22nd and 16th in kick return and punt return average last season. He's not going to do much on offense, as Malcom Floyd is already in the fold as the deep threat. Jones isn't an option to replace Eddie Royal in the slot.
Mar 6 - 12:55 PM

Free agent KR/WR Jacoby Jones will visit the Chargers on Wednesday night.

Jones has received plenty of interest since being released by the Ravens; this will be his third visit after previously meeting with the Bengals and Titans. In San Diego, 31-year-old (in July) Jones would be an upgrade as a punt return man over free agent Eddie Royal and allow Keenan Allen to focus on offense.
Mar 4 - 8:11 AM

Free agent KR/WR Jacoby Jones is visiting the Bengals.

Jones would be an upgrade on free agent Brandon Tate, who filled the return man/receiver depth role for Cincy last year. Jacoby ranked ninth in punt return average and second in kickoff return average for the Ravens in 2014. His next visit is expected to be with the Titans.
Mar 2 - 11:07 AM

Ravens released KR/WR Jacoby Jones.

The Ravens signed Jones to a new four-year, $12 million deal last March that included $4.5 million guaranteed. His release saves the club just $750,000 against the cap unless they designated him as a post-June 1 cut, which would clear $2.5 million for 2015. Jones will be 31 this summer, but wasn't deemed worthy of his inflated salary as a strict return man. He's not a legit receiver option.
Feb 25 - 12:09 PM

The Ravens would create just $750,000 in salary-cap space by releasing Jacoby Jones.

Heading into the second season of a four-year, $12 million deal, Jones is due $2.5 million. The Ravens could recoup all of that by designating Jones as a post-June 1 cut, but that wouldn't be a big help in March. Going on 31, Jones remained one of the league's best return men in 2014, but caught only nine passes.
Feb 3 - 5:14 PM

Jacoby Jones wasn't targeted in the Ravens' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

The dancin' return specialist closes the book on 2014 having caught just nine passes for 131 scoreless yards. Going on 31, Jones is due $2.5 million in 2015. He could be a candidate for a pay cut or release.
Jan 10 - 9:18 PM

Jacoby Jones missed his lone pass target in Sunday's Week 4 win over Carolina.

It's concerning for Jones that his usage was so minimal despite the year-ending loss of Dennis Pitta. Marlon Brown played a bigger role, and is a better option for the Ravens. Jones has no value in standard fantasy leagues. This is the second game in a row Jones has missed his lone pass target.

Ravens WR Jacoby Jones missed his lone target in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Browns.

Baltimore's No. 3 wideout behind Torrey and Steve Smith Sr., Jones has no value in re-draft or Dynasty leagues.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 04:23:00 PM

Jacoby Jones was targeted once in Baltimore's Week 2 win over the Steelers, notching a four-yard catch.

Jones now has three catches through two games. He'll continue to make his money on special teams, and have no fantasy impact.
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 12:57:00 AM

Jacoby Jones secured 2-of-7 targets for 16 yards in the Ravens' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Joe Flacco was the victim of several first-half drops, including a pair by Jones. The Ravens are going to need more efficiency from their sub-package receivers. Truthfully, Jones is best utilized as a kickoff return specialist.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 05:02:00 PM

Ravens re-signed WR/KR Jacoby Jones to a four-year, $14 million contract.

The deal includes $4.5 million guaranteed for a player with ten all-purpose touchdowns through two seasons in Baltimore. Jones was visiting the Giants on Wednesday, but received an offer he couldn't refuse. The dancin' return man remains a one-dimensional, streak-route specialist as a receiver, but is a dynamic special teamer. He can be useful on offense, but played far too many snaps in 2013. Jones is best suited as a situational/No. 4-type wideout.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent WR/KR Jacoby Jones will visit the Giants.

Baltimore is still interested in Jones, but they are unlikely to pay him the $4 million he earned in 2013. Jones will not find that kind of money in New York, but taking a few visits will give him the opportunity to gauge his market. Wherever he lands, Jones will be nothing more than a special teams player and situational wide receiver in 2014.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 05:53:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports the Ravens have tabled an offer for free agent WR/KR Jacoby Jones.

Baltimore is interested in re-signing Jones, but nothing is imminent. The Ravens are unlikely to offer Jones the $4 million he collected in 2013, so he may be interested in testing his value on the open market. He will be nothing more than a special teams player and situational wide receiver in 2014.
Sat, Mar 8, 2014 11:34:00 AM

The Ravens are interested in re-signing free agent WR/KR Jacoby Jones, "depending upon his salary demands."

Per the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens would "likely" balk at paying Jones the $4 million he collected in 2013 via salary and a bonus. The Ravens likely no longer envision Jones as a potential starting wide receiver, and would prefer to pay him special teams money. Jones turns 30 years old before next season.
