Report: Jacoby Jones to visit with Giants

The Giants landed a guard, a linebacker and a running back on the first day of free agency and now they’re turning their attention to their kick return game.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Jacoby Jones is expected to visit with the Giants on Wednesday. Anderson notes that Jones is still talking to the Ravens about remaining in Baltimore, so the visit is contingent on nothing happening with the Ravens that would make a trip to New Jersey moot.

Jones made $4 million in Baltimore last season and returned 31 kickoffs for 892 yards and a touchdown. That score was the fourth career kickoff return touchdown in the regular season — Jones added one in Super Bowl XLVII — to go with four punt return scores. That kind of production was missing for the Giants last season, although it’s unlikely that they’d be willing to pay the same price that the Ravens paid for Jones’ services last season.

With Hakeem Nicks likely leaving the team, Jones could work his way into the receiver rotation for the Giants as well. He has done his best work on special teams throughout his career, though, and that’s likely the leading reason why the Giants and Ravens are interested in his services.

    If Jacoby wears his Ravens uniform, Little Boy Blew (Eli) will throw him at least three or four balls a game.

    Wouldn’t be much more than a returner/situational receiver, but I’d be all for it at the right price.

    Would have been two returns for TD if not for mike Tomlin.

    this dude is a big time play maker. i don’t understand why you don’t keep him. If not for him, the ravens don’t win the superbowl.

    LOL The Giants fans on this thread don’t even want him.

    He’s a situational player and at 4 million a season I’d laugh while crying inside if Reese made this move. The giants always pick up others cast offs. I think the entire coaching staff and front office will be fired if this team fails to reach the playoffs. Well I can hope, right ?

    Sweet Pea is taking him there in the party bus.

    I’d like to see Jacoby back in B-More. He is a fantastic kick returner and still productive as a receiver.

    Reese has 2 rings in 6 years

    I think he knows what he is doing.

    If I were Joe Flacco I’d be panicking. The guy who carried him with his kick returns and jump ball grabs might be leaving. I’d be ponying up millions to give to Jones, who has propped up Flacco like a cardboard cut-out.
