Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones is going to be concentrating on dancing for the next few weeks and he’ll be doing it with $1 million in his pocket.
Jones was paid his $1 million roster bonus as scheduled on Friday, via the Baltimore Sun, which should put to rest any lingering speculation about his spot on the roster for the 2013 season. Most of it likely died off when the Ravens traded Anquan Boldin to leave Jones as their nominal No. 2 receiver behind Torrey Smith, but any that was left has now been erased.
Jones has a $3 million base salary for the 2013 season, a number that the Ravens could conceivably bring down with an extension that keeps him with the team beyond next season. His skills as a kickoff returner alone might make that something of interest to the Ravens, but Jones’s ability to get deep is something that works well in a Baltimore offense that likes to throw the ball deep.
Despite that ability, we still expect to see the Ravens add some help at wide receiver at some point this offseason.
