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.
Nov 3 - 6:00 PM

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.
Oct 10 - 3:12 PM

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.
Oct 9 - 2:16 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 7:26 PM

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

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.
