Jacoby Jones Signs Two-Year Deal With Baltimore Ravens

Former Houston Texans WR Jacoby Jones didn't waste much time in finding a new NFL home, as he signed a two-year $7 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday.

Jones never quite lived up to expectations in Houston, and his fumble on a punt return in their playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens may have ultimately ended their season.

However, Baltimore reacted quickly to pick up their former foe, signing him to a deal that would slide him into the No. 3 WR position with the Ravens.

Baltimore had been looking for a WR capable of returning punts, as they recently signed CB Ladarius Webb to a six-year $50 million deal, making him to valuable an investment to be handling return duties anymore.

Last season with the Texans, Jones caught 31 passes for 512 yards and 2 TD's with a 11.02 punt return average.
