Ravens pick up Brandon Jones

The day after the Ravens season ended, we said they needed to upgrade their speed at wide receiver.

Signing Brandon Jones probably isn’t what Ravens fans had in mind, but it’s a small start.  Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com reports the Ravens signed the former Titans and 49ers player on Friday.

Jones caught 41 passes for the Titans in 2008, but only one passover the last two years while bouncing around the league.  If the Ravens truly do upgrade the position, Jones will be a longshot to make the team out of training camp.

  1. Seriously, the ravens don’t need to upgrade the position. They have Anquan Boldin, Derrick Mason, T. J. Houshmanzadeh, Donte Stallworth, and even young potential in David Reed. They don’t need new receivers, they just need their current receivers to step it up.

    You’re right about the Ravens having the goods at wide receiver. You’re wrong about them stepping up. They only do what Cameron tells them. The play calling and schemes need to get better.

    “You’re wrong about them stepping up. They only do what Cameron tells them.”

    So why would Cameron tell Houshmanzadeh to drop that sure first down pass in the last playoff game?

  4. And the Ravens keep telling themselves that Joe Flacco is a top notch QB. Great move Baltimore!

    That’s true. Cam Cameron is the weakest link in the coaching staff. He needs to be dropped. But look, when you drop a potential first down pass (T. J. Hoyshmandzadeh) at a crucial point in a game, you’ll see what I mean about stepping up.
