Steelers declared WR Jacoby Jones, WR Sammie Coates, RB Jordan Todman, OT Byron Stingily, QB Michael Vick, DE L.T. Walton, and OLB Anthony Chickilo inactive for Week 14 against the Bengals.

Jones has been benched after muffing some return opportunities last week.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told NBC's Michele Tafoya KR Jacoby Jones is "done" after he fumbled two kick returns in the first half Sunday night.

Once a dynamic kick returner who returned one 108 yards for a touchdown for the Ravens in Super Bowl 47, Jones struggled after signing a two-year, $5.5 million contract with San Diego this offseason and was cut in early November. He might be headed to the same fate with the Steelers.

Steelers claimed KR Jacoby Jones off waivers from the Chargers.

Jones was waived on Tuesday. He'l try to give the Steelers a boost on returns, but was struggling mightily in San Diego.

Chargers released KR Jacoby Jones.

Signed to a two-year, $5.5 million deal in March, Jones has been amongst the league's worst kick returners this season, and completely incompetent on punts. He hadn't been playing on offense. Although he's now 31 and struggling, Jones' pedigree will likely earn him a look elsewhere.

Jacoby Jones (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Steelers.

Jones is a game-time decision after practicing the last two days. He'll provide an upgrade on kick returns, but won't have more than a sub-package pass-game role.

Jacoby Jones (ankle) returned to practice on Friday.

It's his first practice since suffering a sprained ankle in Week 1. The special teams ace won't be much of a factor in San Diego's passing game.

Jacoby Jones (ankle) is doubtful for Week 2 against the Bengals.

Jones missed practice all week with a "minor" ankle sprain. He won't play Sunday, but the Chargers don't expect him to miss extended time. Branden Oliver will replace Jones on kick returns, with Keenan Allen replacing him on punts.

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.
Tue, Aug 4, 2015 04:36:00 PM

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.
Fri, Mar 6, 2015 12:55:00 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.
Wed, Mar 4, 2015 08:11:00 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.

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.

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.
Tue, Feb 3, 2015 05:14:00 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.
