HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have reportedly released wide receiver Jacoby Jones. Jones' last game as a Texan was a loss in the playoffs to the Baltimore Ravens, a game in which he fumbled a punt which led to a Ravens touchdown.
In five years with the Texans Jones never developed into a reliable number two receiver opposite Andre Johnson. Jones has 11 career receiving touchdowns and 4 return touchdowns, 3 punt return TD's and one on a kickoff.
The Texans recently drafted two wide receivers, Ohio State's DeVier Posey and Michigan State's Keshawn Martin. Their arrival was likely a factor in Houston releasing Jones, especially since Martin has experience with returns.
