    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones



    WR is one of the positions where camp and pre season will tell a lot regarding the depth chart behind Boldin and Smith, you could argue we dont know who the 3-6 WRs will be as of right now. The other 2 being DE and Primary Back up RB. Everything else is almost set.

    I like this move.

    I don't think he'll do any more here than in Houston, where he played opposite Andre Johnson.

    People are undervaluing dude because of that preposterous muff he had against us last year. He might fuck up on occasion, but the man can be a game changer on ST. Had 5 punt returns of 40+ yards last year (for comparison, Hester had 3 and the Ravens as a whole had just one) and was 3rd overall in total punt return yardage. And while I wouldn't expect too much of a contribution from him on offense, he does have upside there and theres never anything wrong with another potential deep threat

    At least it takes Webb out of return duties.

    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones

    Well, I'm wrong yet again. I was certainly not expecting this move at all, nor do I much like it.

    Jacoby Jones is one of the least physical WRs in the league and seems like a bad fit for this offense. He did absolutely nothing opposite Andre Johnson for 5 years in Houston, but at least he's somewhat of a vertical threat.

    5 years in Texas (75 games) = 127 receptions, 1,741 yards (13.7 avg) 11 TDs.

    With extensive return experience, he looks like a good #3 WR to me.

    It will allow Doss, LQ Wms, and Streeter to develop... Bc

    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones

    Yuck. Hate this move.

    The Ravens miss the Super Bowl because of a dropped pass and so they sign a guy who has a history of underperforming and making mistakes in big spots. I just don't get it.

    By the way where did they get the cap space to do this deal and the 2 DTs?

    If we're signing him with primarily return duties in mind, it's a good move. We've needed a return specialist for a LONG time.

    To be fair, he was without Johnson and had TJ Yates throwing him the ball for much of last year (I still don't think he'll be much of a factor on offense)

    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones

    We're basically Houston east now...

    All these former Texans players, i will say this though if he pans out like Pollard, and Leach did, i will applaud this move, until then its just a cheap depth move IMO

    What about the 4 years before that? Jones wasn't ever able to beat out Kevin Walter. A dynamic receiver would never have been held back by Walter

    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones

    People are getting WAY too caught up in the WR aspect of Jones.

    He has been brought in primarily as a return man.

    Don't get so worked up about this 3rd WR stuff...he is not being automatically penciled in as the man there.

    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones

    Expensive return man, though.

    Re: Ravens sign Jacoby Jones

    Wow, what a waste of money. Complete waste of money.

    How about we develop our own receivers for once? Fucking incompetent offensive staff, I swear.

    Why not spend this money on ray rice? Stupid. I cant put into words how stupid this is. Are we trying to make Ray Rice hold out?

    Ray Rice has to be pissed. Drafting an un-needed RB in the 3rd round(with starting talent/potential), when we already have a "pound-the-rock" HB in Anthony Allen.

    And 3.5 million for a return man/receiver who sucks at receiving?

    I like the move from a ST's standpoint. We need a returner, now we have one. Not expecting him to make too much noise as #3 WR. this likely seals david reeds fate. Im glad that they have committed to improving ST's this offseason.
