Ravens Cut Ties with WR Jacoby Jones
Jacoby Jones, the target of Joe Flacco's legendary heave in the 2012 AFC Divisional Game against the Denver Broncos, has been terminated from his contract with the Ravens.
Jones began 2014 as a key member of the Ravens offense, but as new weapons emerged, such as Michael Campanaro, Owen Daniels and Crockett Gilmore, Jones' importance became less and less visual. He finished this last season with 10 catches for 134 yards and no touchdowns, though he did return a kickoff for a touchdown in Week 9 versus the Steelers.
Jones's cap hit for 2015 was nearly $4 million, and it's hard to justify a roster spot for a 30-year old, one-dimensional receiver. The Lane College grad had just completed the first year of a 4-year, $12 million contract extension with the team.
