A lot of people questioned whether Jacoby was up to being that #2 or "2b" that the Texans seemed to hope he would become. His success with the Ravens seemed much about being used properly by the coaching staff than anything else. Our coaching staff wasn't going to do that so we'd have never seen that Jacoby Jones. We waited a long time for him to show up. Never got him.
Getting kicked to the curb seemed to get his attention and helped his focus for a while. Again, we weren't going to see that guy.
We saw a more productive guy and were right to let him go. Jacoby's production as a WR in two years in Baltimore barely tops his production in his last year as a Texan. They did not unleash some hidden Jacoby the Texans couldn't find on the league. He is now staring at a big pay cut for 2014 since the Ravens have offered something much smaller and he is attempting to find interest in the market.
