Ravens meet with Jacoby Jones

Cut last week by the Texans, receiver/kick returner Jacoby Jones already has met with the Panthers.  And now he has met with the Ravens.

The meeting occurred on Sunday, according to Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston.

A five-year veteran,  Jones has been a decent but not spectacular wideout, generating in the neighborhood of 500 receiving yards per season in each of the last three years.  He’s had a bigger impact as a return specialist, with four career scores on kicks and punts.

A recent item in the Charlotte Observer said that, in addition to the Panthers, Jones is scheduled to meet with two more teams.

With Torrey Smith, the Ravens no longer need a deep threat.  But if they could get both of them on the field at the same time, the underneath routes would be far more available to veteran Anquan Boldin.

The Ravens added Tommy Streeter in the sixth round of the draft.  Baltimore currently has nine receivers on the roster.

    Makes sense, he’s already won a playoff game for them…

    Ravens are forever looking for a WR. Seems they can never get that flat out stud WR . No matter how many they draft, trade, or free agents they sign.

    Nine receivers on the roster AND the best QB in the game!!

    Maybe now Flacco can improve on his passer rating that ranked 18th in the league last year (washed up interception machine Carson Palmer was 19th).

  4. steeltownpride says: May 6, 2012 11:46 PM

    Is he the next FA hope of the Ravens to be that reciever ? Or should i say the next WR to drop a pass that allows the Ravens to move on in the playoffs ?

    Another number two wideout for the ravens.

    I’ve been waiting to hear this since he left the Texans. The Ravens haven’t had a good return game since Jermaine Lewis and it’s been noticeable in recent years.

    This would be a good fit.

    “ravens meet with Jacoby Jones” rest of league says “who cares”

    “A five-year veteran, Jones has been a decent but not spectacular wideout…”

    Where?

    He darn sure didn’t display that above average talent here in Houston. Piss poor route running, the inability to get open during key moments in the red zone and the uncanny inability to get separation on more than one occasion.

    We wish Jacoby well, but it’s clear that he wore out his welcome when he couldn’t get his game up when Andre Johnson went out last season. Even as a third option he was lackluster at best.

    Whoever he lands with, I hope you’re ready for some disappearing acts.

    The Ravens will not make the playoffs this year.

  10. cheers4ablumpkin says: May 7, 2012 12:27 AM

    YES YES that’s what we need another speedy deep threat. Get this deal done Ozzie. Don’t be stupid

  11. Max says: May 7, 2012 12:46 AM

    Take look at Tommy Streeter Combine… the guy cant catch

  12. shieldsisland37 says: May 7, 2012 12:53 AM

    Im not trying to be mean. I am sure he is a good kid, and he works hard. But, how on earth does a kid with physical ability like this make no impact on the field?

  13. ashhole20 says: May 7, 2012 1:02 AM

    Makes sense. He was their MVP in the playoff game against the Texans

  14. cheers4ablumpkin says: May 7, 2012 1:46 AM

    Yes do it Ozzie make it happen brotha

  15. cheers4ablumpkin says: May 7, 2012 1:46 AM

    Yes do it Ozzie make it happen brotha

  16. drglory says: May 7, 2012 2:53 AM

    Ravens might as well sign him and make it official, he helped win a playoff game for them last year.

  17. switch123 says: May 7, 2012 5:45 AM

    Get all the WR’s you want. Until you change your QB out, you’ll have the same result you’ve had the last 4 years.

  18. mkdave23 says: May 7, 2012 6:18 AM

    Well, we do kinda owe him one…

  19. blazertop says: May 7, 2012 7:12 AM

    JJ had one play in that playoff game. It’s easy to beat a team when their head coach is Kubiak. His lifetime record proves that (47-49)

  20. warrenmoon says: May 7, 2012 7:20 AM

    I know most people are offended when you say Flacco is terrible, but he is at least average. And in today’s NFL, you need good offense to win football games. The Pats had the worst defense and the Giants were 27th. The league has completely shifted.

    You’re right. Torrey Smith is just terrible, what with all of that YAC and TD’s with no rookie camp… go troll a new site.

    Houston game would love to know when this ‘decent’ receiving production happened…

  23. dg0122 says: May 7, 2012 8:36 AM

    Houston fans, not game…damn autocorrect

    He’s not even a #2…..He’s a #3 when everyones healthy. If the Ravens need a return guy fine, you just have to put up with him putting the ball on the ground at a critical time, or 2, or 3…….

    Enjoy the frustration!

    Oh you mean 4 playoff appearances and 2 AFC Championship games? Yeah those results are just terrible…get a clue.

    Considering the Steeler’s lost to the legendary Tim Tebow you should probably reserve judgment on this. Just saying…..

  27. ahostiletakeover says: May 7, 2012 10:20 AM

    I really hope this is just the Ravens doing their due diligence, they already have a younger version of Jones on the roster in David Reed, fumbles and all. Why continue drafting receivers like Tandon Doss last year and Streeter this year if you’re always going to bring in a 1 year vet who ends up dropping the ball in the playoffs. As a Ravens fan I have viewed this last 3 consecutive years and it has done absolutely nothing for them. Why also draft Asa Jackson in the 5th who major contribution to an NFL team will likely be in the return game? Give the young guys, be it on offense or special teams, a chance to step up like you handle the young guys on your defense, otherwise you’re just continuing to waste draft picks…

    Again flacco haters abound. How do you criticizes a qb that had won more games than any other qb in his first four years in the latte. The Only qb to win a playoff game n his first four years. It’s ridiculous that there are so many haters over a guy who just keeps winning and is two dropped passes away from two superbowls

  29. mding729 says: May 7, 2012 10:56 AM

    why do the ravens need a stud receiver, they have flacco. oh thats right, flacco sucks!!! Even with a stud receiver, the ravens will suck until they get rid of flacco. most over-rated QB in the league.

  30. broomehandle says: May 7, 2012 11:13 AM

    As a huge ravens fan and watching jones muff punts in the playoffs which helped us win NO THANK YOU!

  31. lovefootball4life says: May 7, 2012 11:23 AM

    Raven’s tried this with TJ Hous….(however you spell it) and Lee Evans. Maybe 3rd times a charm? or maybe he’s the kick returner they need.

    Don’t understand the Flacco haters. Sure his numbers are not elite but he’s also the only QB in history to have made the post season in his first four years. He’s not over-rated, in fact he hardly gets any love at all.

  32. randallflagg52 says: May 7, 2012 2:40 PM

    Look at Flacco’s 2010 stats and tell me they wern’t impressive. Sure his numbers were down in 2011 but he also did lose Heap and Mason and was playing with a lot of new faces. He’ll bounce back.
