Jacoby Jones Stays in The Nest

Jacoby doo rag

Jacoby Jones has agreed to a new four-year contract with the Ravens, the team announced Wednesday. The deal is for $14M and includes $4.5M in guarantees. Jones allows the Ravens to keep a clutch playmaker as a wide receiver and returner.

After visiting the Giants on Wednesday, Jones decided staying with the Ravens was his best option. He made the Pro Bowl as a special teamer in 2012, and he was a major player during the Ravens’ Super Bowl run that season. He caught a 70-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco with 31 seconds left in a playoff game in Denver to force overtime. Then in Super Bowl XLVII, Jones scored on a 108-yard kickoff return, and on a 56-yard touchdown pass from Flacco.

Jones had 37 catches for 455 yards and two touchdowns in 2013, although he missed four games with a knee injury.

    Alright! Come on back and keep our ST at the top of the league! We have to stay good in all three phases of the game and it looks like we’ll do just that this year!

  2. Tucker: M&T Sec 527 on said:

    Great news! . Jacoby is a threat to score any time he touches the ball. His receiving will improve as he gets another full year with Joe (remember, Trawick stole about half the season from him this year). He also helps keep the locker room loose as court jester.

    Everything is going according to a plan I like. Suggs extended, Monroe, Pitta, and Jacoby signed. Let’s get Darryl Smith signed and we can have some fun in the draft.

  3. Kevin on said:

    Good news!
    The receiving end of the rocky mountain rainbow, the Real MVP of Super Bowl XLVII is back where he belongs.

    nit picking but would rather have signed ILB DSmith 1st and gone after KR DHester then Drafted a WR early in the Draft…

  5. Ravenlady on said:

    So very happy to keep #12. He rapidly became one of my favorite players. I simply LOVE his attitude. He plays seriously but is always smiling & about keeping it light. Proud to have him & hope he retires a RAVEN.

  6. Ebuhuel on said:

    This is a great signing, 14 million for 4 years is a real good price for a dangerous returner and a deep threat. Some people forget what a small price it is to pay for a playmaker like jacoby.

    Just to correct some people:
    - @kevin j jones shouldn’t have been the mvp of the superbowl, yes he made amazing plays but Joe Flacco did the boatload of plays in the superbowl run.
    - @Mook the 14 million contract wont be a difference for the money what Torrey and Jimmy will be commanding seeing they will be receiving somewhere between 6 and 10 million a season. So the 2 million cap hit for jacoby is peanuts
