The San Diego Chargers released WR Jacoby Jones Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Footballguys view: Jones has been bad as a returner this year, and the team wasn't using him much as an offensive player. Some team in need of a veteran return man could give Jones a look.

The San Diego Chargers have declared OG Chris Watt, CB Craig Mager, WR Jacoby Jones, SS Jahleel Addae, OT King Dunlap, OG Orlando Franklin, LB Tourek Williams inactive for Week 4.

Footballguys view: The Chargers offensive line is short-handed for this one with three starters out. This could be a long day for Philip Rivers.

  Chargers | Friday injury report for Week 4    Fri Oct 2, 04:18 PM

San Diego Chargers S Jahleel Addae (ankle), OG Orlando Franklin (ankle), WR Jacoby Jones (ankle), CB Craig Mager (hamstring) and LB Tourek Williams (foot) have been ruled out for Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns. OT King Dunlap (concussion) and C Chris Watt (groin) are doubtful. OT D.J. Fluker (ankle, chest) and CB Jason Verrett (foot) are questionable, while CB Brandon Flowers (knee) and OG Chris Hairston (ankle, knee) are probable. Franklin, Jones, Mager, Williams, Dunlap and Watt did not practice Friday, Oct. 2. Addae, Fluker and Verrett were limited, while the others practiced in full.

Footballguys view: The Chargers offensive line is decimated. This might be a good week to err on the side of benching Chargers except maybe Danny Woodhead, Stevie Johnson and Keenan Allen in PPR leagues, since they are short range targets.

  Chargers | Jacoby Jones ready to make an impact    Wed Aug 12, 08:01 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Jacoby Jones isn't relying on his previous success with the Baltimore Ravens as he gets set for his first preseason game with the Chargers Thursday, Aug. 13. 'I just want to get out there and play my role. Whatever I've got to bring to the table, I'm going to bring it. Whenever they call my name to make a play, I'll make it. And I've got my first celebration planned. I always have them ready. I've been thinking about them from the day I signed,' said Jones.

  Chargers | Jacoby Jones to be kick returner    Fri Mar 6, 05:48 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Jacoby Jones will primarily serve as the team's kick returner in 2015, but he can also serve a complementary role in the receiving game. The Chargers averaged just 22.2 yards per kick return in 2014 (ranked 22nd in the league) and 8.8 yards per punt return (No. 16 in the league). Jones averaged 10.1 yards per punt return and 27.4 yards per kick return for the Baltimore Ravens in 2014.

Footballguys view: Jones doesn't offer much as a receiver, but he can be a quality return man for the Chargers. Signing him (keeps him away from Denver) and will allow WRs Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal to focus on receiving duties. This move could also signal that the Chargers are ready to move on from Royal as he is set to be an unrestricted free agent next week.

Free-agent WR Jacoby Jones (Ravens) is scheduled to visit with the San Diego Chargers Wednesday, March 4.

Free-agent WR/KR Jacoby Jones (Ravens) is visiting the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, March 2.

Footballguys view: Jones doesn't offer much as a receiver anymore--he never really did. However, he can help a team upgrade their return game as he's still a big play waiting to happen with the ball in his hands.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones released    Wed Feb 25, 12:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones was released Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quick around here. Just last March, Jones signed a four-year deal with the Ravens with $4.5 million guaranteed...now he's looking for a job. Teams should be interested in him, mainly because of his ability as a return man.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones may receive more work     Sat Oct 11, 12:13 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones likely will receive more snaps on offense in Week 6 since WR Marlon Brown (pelvis) is listed as doubtful for the game.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones financials    Wed Mar 12, 04:12 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones will make $14 million as part of his four-year deal with the team, with $4.5 million guaranteed, according to a souce.

Footballguys view: Not a bad deal, and Jones brings plenty to the table. He probably won't be a fantasy threat unless you could return yards, but that's because we expect the Raven to add more receiving weapons. If they fail to, he might be an intriguing WR3 or 4.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones re-signs    Wed Mar 12, 03:53 PM

The Baltimore Ravens reached a four-year deal to re-sign WR Jacoby Jones Wednesday, March 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jones had been whispered as a target of the New York Giants, but after getting rid of Anquan Boldin last season and suffering, the Ravens wanted their return man around.

  Giants | Expected to meet with Jacoby Jones    Tue Mar 11, 05:48 PM

Free-agent WR Jacoby Jones (Ravens) is expected to meet with the New York Giants Wednesday, March 12.

Footballguys view: The Giants should lose Hakeem Nicks in free agency. This would leave a spot on the depth chart they could fill with a guy like Jones. He could also help as a return man.

  Giants | Could look for a returner this offseason    Sun Feb 9, 10:47 PM

The New York Giants could show interest in Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Jacoby Jones, Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Dexter McCluster and Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Ted Ginn Jr. because they are looking to improve their return game. All three could also help out the team's receiver corps.

Footballguys view: Any of those receivers would help out the team in more than one way. The Giants are likely to let Hakeem Nicks walk in free agency this offseason. That will create a hole in the wide receiver corps they need to fill.

The Baltimore Ravens are expected to try to re-sign impending free-agent TE Dennis Pitta, OT Eugene Monroe, LB Daryl Smith and WR Jacoby Jones before the start of free agency.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Those four players are key to what the team wants to do on both sides of the ball. We'll see if they can work some salary cap magic to make all this happen.

  Ravens | Interested in re-signing Jacoby Jones    Fri Jan 31, 10:15 PM

The Baltimore Ravens are interested in re-signing impending free-agent WR Jacoby Jones, depending on what salary he is looking for in a new contract.

Footballguys view: Jones is a rather one-dimensional receiver, and we can't imagine the market being white hot for his services. He's a deep target with the speed to get on top of the defense in a hurry. Jones can also help out as a return man.

  Ravens | Deonte Thompson could have bigger role    Thu Nov 7, 02:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Deonte Thompson could see more action with the team moving to more three-wide receiver sets this year. He caught three passes for 24 yards in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns. 'Deonte is a very good route runner. He can run all the routes outside very effectively. So, when you have a route runner, you like to get him the ball and have him make some plays for you. If people are going to play us the way they're playing us right now, you need a route runner outside to make some plays.' Opponents are playing to stop the run and leaving a single high safety and man-on-man coverage on the outside. WR Marlon Brown is also seeing more snap; he was on the field for 56 of the team's 73 offensive plays last week. Brown had 15 more snaps than WR Jacoby Jones.

Footballguys view: A potential stash on your bench, but no more until we see if this has legs. Marlon Brown is still the better play as a flex or WR3 right now.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones to be used more    Wed Oct 16, 09:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones impressed the team in his Week 6 return and will be utilized more on offense moving forward. 'It was great,' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. 'Jacoby gave us a speed element out there, and he'll probably play more and more offensively as we go forward.'

Footballguys view: The Ravens need more explosiveness in their passing game, and Jones will provide that. With more targets for Jones we'll see it lower the fantasy value of Marlon Brown. Outside of Torrey Smith, there's not much in the Ravens' passing game fantasy owners can trust.

Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown (thigh) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is questionable for Week 6.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones limited    Wed Oct 9, 05:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Jones is close to returning to the field. The Ravens passing game outside of Torrey Smith has been struggling this season. We'll see if the return of Jones can give them a shot in the arm.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones getting closer    Tue Oct 8, 12:51 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) might be able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 9. He has missed four straight games, but was able to practice on a limited basis last week.

Footballguys view: The Ravens' passing game needs a shot in the arm. Outside of Torrey Smith there aren't any quality weapons for Joe Flacco to target frequently. Jones has big play ability and the speed to stretch defenses vertically.
