While the Ravens look for outside help to bolster their receiving corps, they have signed one of their own. The Ravens and Jacoby Jones agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $14 million on Wednesday with $4.5 million guaranteed. In 2013, Jones caught 37 passes for 455 yards and two scores. But he also gained more than 1,100 yards returning kicks and punts.
The financial value in terms of salary is similar to the deal Tennessee gave Dexter McCluster, but Jones is now under contract through his age-33 season. McCluster's expires when he is only 28.
Those two players are similar, not in body type, but skill set. Both are fast, big-play guys who contribute on offense but have found their calling on special teams. Jones racked up more than 2,600 return yards over the past two seasons. He is valuable to the Ravens in that regard, but fairly forgettable in fantasy. He has never topped 600 receiving yards in any of his seven seasons.
