Description: The Ravens released receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones.
Insight: Baltimore will save $750,000 against the cap with this move unless they designate him as a post-June 1 cut. In that case, the Ravens would save $2.5 million against the cap for 2015. With just being a return man, Jones wasn't worth the new contract he signed last March which was four-years, $12 million.

Description: The Ravens are keeping receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones.
Insight: Jones signed a four-year deal to stay with Baltimore on Wednesday. His knack for the big play may intrigue some fantasy owners but with just 2,602 receiving yards spread out over seven seasons, Jones doesn't have a high ceiling. Save him for the end of your draft.
10/13/2013 12:35:00 PM
Description: Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) will return to the field for the first time since Week 1.
Insight: Jones will probably end up sharing snaps with Marlon Brown and not be a great fantasy option this week versus Green Bay.
10/9/2013 3:02:00 PM
Description: Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones was back on the practice field Wednesday and could return to game action Sunday.
Insight: Jones will probably be eased back into the game and run as the No. 3 receiver this week behind Torrey Smith and Marlon Brown.

Description: Injured Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones was involved in a strange incident Sunday night. SOURCE: TMZ.com
Insight: Jones was struck in the head with a bottle of liquor while attending teammate Bryant McKinnie's party bus. Jones was already dealing with a knee injury. Having a possible concussion to deal with on top of that certainly won't help his recovery process.
9/7/2013 10:26:00 AM
Description: Baltimore receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones' MRI on Friday showed a sprained MCL which will keep in off the fied for 4-6 weeks, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Insight: His absence showed how thin the Ravens are at wide receiver. The team was left with Torrey Smith, 37-year-old Brandon Stokley and rookie Marlon Brown. The Ravens may have to search for outside help.

Description: Baltimore receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones (sprained knee) will have an MRI on Friday.
Insight: His absence showed how thin the Ravens are at wide receiver. The team was left with Torrey Smith, 37-year-old Brandon Stokley and rookie Marlon Brown. If the Jones injury turns out to be lengthy the team may have to search for outside help.
9/5/2013 10:42:00 PM
Description: Baltimore receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones suffered a sprained knee Thursday against the Broncos.
Insight: He is probably done for the night. Look for Torrey Smith to be targeted heavily in Jones' absence.
6/2/2012 11:45:00 AM
Description: Newly acquired Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones could be used as both a punt and kickoff return man along with his duties as the team's No. 3 receiver.
Insight: The combination could allow Jones to be a low-end fantasy value receiver in leagues which accumulate punt and kick return yardage.
5/1/2012 7:56:00 PM
Description: Jacoby Jones has been released by the Houston Texans.
Insight: Jones was scheduled to earn $3 million next season so this is a cost-cutting move for the Texans. The 27-year-old Jones is a so-so receiver but he has good wheels and has functioned as a decent kickoff and punt returner for Houston over the last few seasons.

Description: The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with free agent receiver Jacoby Jones and tackle Rashad Butler. SOURCE: ESPN.COM
Insight: Jones' deal spans three seasons and is worth $10.5 million, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Jones caught 51 passes for 562 yards in 2010, his fourth season with Houston. The 6-4, 308-pound Butler played in all 16 games last season. He started four games at left tackle when regular starter Duane Brown served a suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
7/7/2011 1:15:00 PM
Description: The Texans' plans for free agency likely will begin by attempting to lock up their own players, with making an offer to unrestricted free-agent FB Vonta Leach the first order of business followed by a pitch for WR Jacoby Jones. SOURCE: PRO FOOTBALL WEEKLY
Insight: Although bouts of inconsistency have plagued Jones, he remains a dangerous downfield target for QB Matt Schaub, in addition to being the club's best return man. If Jones receives a more lucrative deal elsewhere, second-year WR Dorin Dickerson could see an increased role on offense. WR-RS Trindon Holliday could get the first shot at return duties. We still believe Jones will be re-signed by the club.
1/4/2011 2:02:00 AM
Description: Jones caught five passes for 70 yards in Sunday's win.
Insight: It was his fourth straight game with at least five catches after Jones hadn't reached that number since Week 3. He's on the verge of free agency, so it'll be interesting to see what teams are willing to pay and if he's finally ready to put a full season together. (RapidDraft.com)
12/31/2010 11:00:00 AM
Description: With Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) ailing, WR Jacoby Jones is expected to draw another start against the Jaguars. SOURCE: HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Insight: Jones had a big game last week against the Broncos. He could be a very strong WR2/WR3 this week against a Jaguars Defense that is just as bad.
12/26/2010 5:50:00 PM
Description: Texans WR Jacoby Jones has a career-high 92 yards and a TD in the first half in Week 16 vs. Denver.
Insight: It obviously helps that WR Andre Johnson is inactive, but Jones is having a great game and it's still going.
12/3/2010 10:04:00 AM
Description: Jones took advantage of Andre Johnson's brief absence Thursday night to catch his first touchdown pass since Week 2.
Insight: It was just Jones' second score of the season and the fifth time in the past six games that he caught two passes or fewer. It has been a thoroughly disappointing season for what seemed to be a fantasy breakout candidate. (RapidDraft.com)
10/4/2010 4:00:00 PM
Description: Jones caught just one pass on three targets Sunday before leaving with a calf injury. The severity is not yet known.
Insight: It was a highly disappointing outing with Andre Johnson inactive. We'll see if Jones will miss any more time going forward. (RapidDraft.com)
10/3/2010 9:31:00 PM
Description: Already missing Andre Johnson, the Houston Texans lost WR Jacoby Jones in the second half Week 4 with a calf injury.
Insight: He never returned to the game, indicating it might be more serious than first thought. The injuries to their wide receivers are likely a major reason Joel Dreessen was a big part of the offense and the reason Gary Kubiak used three different running backs.
10/3/2010 3:02:00 PM
Description: With teammate Andre Johnson ruled out today, Jones should be in line for more targets against the Raiders.
Insight: Houston should let the running game lead the way against a weak Oakland run defense, but there will be plenty of passing work to support Jones and Kevin Walter. Each is a good fantasy option in Week 4. (RapidDraft.com)
9/27/2010 1:04:00 AM
Description: Jones grabbed five catches for 51 yards on Sunday. It was Kevin Walter who came away with the lone touchdown catch, though.
Insight: Jones continues to emerge as an important part of the Houston passing game. He's worth weekly starting consideration and would get a boost if Johnson were to hurt his ankle worse. (RapidDraft.com)
