Jacoby Jones WR BAL 2 Days

Jones dropped his only target in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Panthers.

Jones did the same thing last week, getting just one look and wasting it with an uncontested drop. He somehow already has four bad drops, despite seeing just 10 targets through the first four games of the season. The Ravens have given Jones every chance to hold on to the No. 3 wideout role, but he may have lost the job Sunday afternoon. Jones was nearly invisible after the dropped pass, finishing the game with just six offensive snaps, compared to 31 for Marlon Brown. While Brown hasn't done much this season, he has at least avoided the obvious mistakes that have plagued Jones. If he drops to fourth or fifth on the depth chart at wideout, Jones will mostly just be a very well compensated return specialist.

Jones dropped his only target in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Browns.

Jones didn't get any chances in the return game Sunday afternoon, getting held to fair catches and touchbacks. His drop was a bad one, as he got wide open down the right sideline with the Ravens trailing by four in the fourth quarter, only to let a perfect pass go off his fingertips. Drops have always been a problem for Jones, who now has three on the season to go along with just three receptions on nine targets. He and Marlon Brown each played 23 offensive snaps in a game that saw the Ravens record 33 carries. Jones had 28 snaps to Brown's four in Week 2, but it was 48-40 in Week 1. Brown caught his lone target for 15 yards Sunday, and while he hasn't done much this season, he seems to be pushing Jones for snaps behind starters Torrey and Steve Smith. The Ravens may use more three and four-wide formations after TE Dennis Pitta suffered another hip injury Sunday.

Jones caught his only target for four yards in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Steelers.

Though quiet from a receiving perspective, Jones played 28-of-70 snaps in a game that saw the Ravens go run-heavy, while Marlon Brown was only on the field for four plays. Jones logged a bunch of snaps as the lone receiver in one-wide formations, and he avoided the drops and poor return decisions that spoiled his season opener. His highlight for the night was a 33-yard punt return, but it came in the fourth quarter with the Ravens up by three scores.

Jones had two catches for 16 yards on seven targets in Sunday's loss to the Bengals

Jones and Marlon Brown essentially worked as co-No. 3 wide receivers, with Jones logging 48-of-88 snaps and Brown 40-of-88. Neither played well, but Jones' struggles were more obvious, as he dropped a couple of passes, including one for a long gain. Jones also had a bad day on special teams, muffing a punt, and then later making a bad decision to take the ball out from the end zone on the final drive of the game. He still figures to work as the top return man in Week 2, as he was mostly excellent in that role the past two seasons. He also figures to maintain his role in the offense, though 48 snaps is on the very high end of what can be expected, with the Ravens unlikely to approach 88 offensive plays or 62 pass attempts most weeks.

Jones caught two passes for 16 yards on three targets in Saturday's preseason opener against the 49ers.

More significant than the statistics, Jones worked as the No. 3 wide receiver, ahead of Marlon Brown. With Torrey Smith locked in as the No. 1, and Steve Smith likely to get the second-most snaps, Jones and Brown are jockeying for whatever's left. The Ravens will likely try to find roles for both Jones and Brown, as Steve Smith won't necessarily be an every-down player, and the team could split up the No. 3 duties.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports WR/KR Jacoby Jones will visit the Giants.

Baltimore is still interested in Jones, but they are unlikely to pay him the $4 million he earned in 2013. Jones will not find that kind of money in New York, but taking a few visits will give him the opportunity to gauge his market. Wherever he lands, Jones will be nothing more than a special teams player and situational wide receiver in 2014.

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports the Ravens have tabled an offer for free agent WR/KR Jacoby Jones.

Baltimore is interested in resigning Jones, but nothing is imminent. The Ravens are unlikely to offer Jones the $4 million he collected in 2013, so he may be interested in testing his value on the open market. He will be nothing more than a special teams player and situation wide receiver in 2014.

The Ravens are interested in re-signing free agent WR/KR Jacoby Jones, "depending upon his salary demands."

Per the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens would "likely" balk at paying Jones the $4 million he collected in 2013 via salary and a bonus. The Ravens likely no longer envision Jones as a potential starting wide receiver, and would prefer to pay him special teams money. Jones turns 30 years old before next season.

New Ravens OC Gary Kubiak insists he has a "great relationship" with impending free agent Jacoby Jones.

It was Kubiak's Texans who released Jones in May 2012. "I don't want to say I was like a father figure to him, but he was like one of my children," Kubiak said, perhaps protesting too much. "I'm so proud of the man he's become, as well as the player. I look forward to seeing him." Jones has failed time and again as a No. 2/3 receiver, but remains an effective deep threat and return specialist. The Ravens should make a bid to keep him, but won't overpay.
