Former Houston Texans WR Jacoby signed a two-year, $7 million deal with the Ravens, according to sources. He joins starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith and can lend a hand on special teams.

How's this for irony in the NFL: it was Jones who muffed a punt in the 1st quarter of an AFC divisional game against Baltimore last year. The Ravens recovered at the 2 scored a touchdown. He also fumbled later in the game. The Texans fans were none too happy and it may have very well spelled the end of the line for Jones in Houston. He was cut on May 1st.

Jones, 6'2" 212 lbs, caught only 31 passes for 512 yards last year while Andre Johnson was out for most of the year with injuries.

The Texans' third round pick in 2007, he signed a 3-year deal before last season, then proceeded to regress from his 2010 numbers.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome – "Adding Jacoby gives us another proven downfield weapon in our passing game and production with our returns... His experience makes the offense better, and the competition he brings can help raise our levels at receiver and with punt and kickoff returns."
