Fox Sports Houston:
HOUSTON - Despite news reports and fan websites that said otherwise, the agent for receiverpunt returner Jacoby Jones, Kennard McGuire, told FOX 26 Sports that his client was never in any danger Sunday night.
McGuire said he did hear fans threaten Jones during telephone calls to local radio stations, but nothing beyond that.
However, McGuire took no chances.
"As his adviser I took it upon myself to make sure that there was someone in position to be around him and insure that it was always a safe environment," McGuire said.
"I took it upon myself just to have someone tail him and he didn't even know it."
McGuire said Jones did not personally report any threats made against him.
"I can only go off the fact that what was stated on the radio," McGuire said.
"All from the standpoint of people calling in on the radio making their statements of what they wanted to do. That's all I can attest to.
"He's fine. As matter of fact he's at home right now watching television."
McGuire also said reports of fans burning Jones' jerseys in the players' front yard were false.
Jones fumbled during a punt return early in the first quarter of the Texan's 20-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in the AFC divisonal playoffs.
The turnover led to the first of the Ravens' two touchdowns.
Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said there is no excuse for Jones' mistake, but he never considered pulling him from the punt return team.
BEST OF MAXIM
Jacoby Jones apologized to teammates for a fumbled punt return that cost the Texans dearly in Sunday's divisional playoff loss to the Ravens, but the wideout refuses to dwell on the game-changing gaff.
Houston's Playoff run ended with a 20-13 loss at Baltimore in the Divisional Round on Sunday.
Quarterback T.J. Yates completed 17 of 35 passes for 184 yards, with no touchdowns against three interceptions - and was clearly razzled against a ferocious defense in a hostile environment at MT Bank Stadium. Stud running back Arian Foster had a strong outing with 132...
Houston Texans quarterback Jake Delhomme isn't ready to say he's officially retiring, but the 14-year veteran said his playing career is likely over.
Even the most devout Texans fan had to question how far rookie quarterback TJ Yates could carry them into the playoffs. The answer? To the Baltimore 38 yard line at the two-minute warning of the AFC Divisional Championship game.
Friend of TGS Patty Hsieh of The Pigskin Arch made a bold prediction: the Houston Texans would make three bone-headed plays in this game against the Ravens...
Jacoby Jones, Punt Returner, Houston Texans. Oh, Jacoby Jones. I'm sorry that I have to write this when all I really want to do is give you a hug, but that's the way the cookie crumbles this evening. Jones was Monsignor **** on Sunday, making an absolutely inexplicable decision to try and field a bouncing punt right in front of a Baltimore defender. He muffed it, as you...
After the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Houston Texans 20-13 in Sunday's AFC Divisional playoff game, players and coaches met at midfield to shake hands and congratulate each other on a game well played.
However, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and Texans running back Arian Foster took that sportsmanship to the next level by swapping jerseys and signing them for each other after...
Houston Texans 13
Baltimore Ravens 20
This is another game that pretty much played out exactly as was predicted. The Ravens play pretty well when at home, while the Texans limped toward the end of the season with three straight losses before pulling out a victory last week against a Bengals team that may have been one of the only other teams in the playoffs with less momentum...
