Well it could had been for like a five-year extension or something. But Ravens seem to want to play it cautious with him for two-years and $7M. Not bad money though.

I was bored a few hours ago, and went over to the Ravens.com forums. I got some good laughs out of their fans responses to their team signing Jacoby.

Here is the thread, just in case some folks haven't seen it yet.

They should be happy. Their WR corps is weak.

The problem is that the Ravens are at or above the cap, and they have guys like Flacco and Ray Rice that need to be extended. Rice is currently under the franchise tag for the year, and they need to work out a long term deal with him, probably along the lines of what Foster got.

Any way you slice it, 2 years 7 million is too much for Jacoby.

Ravens are going to be in a tough situation with Joe Flacco. He's a capable starter, but I don't think he's proven he be the type of QB to put the team on his shoulders in crunch time often. Question they'll have to answer is do they want to pay that kind of cash for him?

I'm thinking this is why Jones managed to fleece Newsome. He's desperate to see FLacco take that next step or else....they're going to have to start over at QB. Of course I think there was much better options to improve your WR staff.

Getting something worked out with Rice is a no brainer. He IS the Ravens offense.

I personally don't like Flacco that much as a QB, but great QBs are so difficult to find that when a team gets a good/decent QB like a Romo, Schaub or Flacco, they are better off sticking with them. Flacco is in the last year of his rookie deal, and he's scheduled to make about 8.8 million this year. He likely will get about 12-15 million a year (slightly more than Mark Sanchez money) with an extension, but that's a lot of money to tie up going forward. Money that may require letting players go. I think the Jacoby signing is a poor move on their part, as I don't think he's worth the money, nor do I think he will be a capable #3 WR in their offense. Their TEs Dickson and Pitta really shined last year and came up big, so much like the Texans, the #3 WR is a truly the 5th or 6th option in the passing game. 7 million is too much for a guy who will probably get 20-30 targets and be a punt returner.

On May 1, 2012, Jones was released by the Texans. He was subsequently signed by Baltimore and participated in his first OTA with the team this week. Jones, being one of the teams bigger free agent signings this off season, had the spotlight upon him in his first practice and seemed a bit shaky at times, dropping several passes from new quarterback Joe Flacco.

"Jacoby Jones had a rough day as far as catching the football," added RavensInsider Aaron Wilson.

WBALís Gerry Sandusky. "Jacoby Jones still has consistency issues catching."





It may just be a case of him pressing too hard in his first practice with his new team. Last season's rookie sensation Torrey Smith had a rough first training camp and preseason before he decided to light the world on fire. Jones, however has a track record from Houston of, well, not making the big plays when needed.

Of course the emphasis of why he was brought in is his return ability on special teams. So as long as he hold onto the ball there maybe he can play up to par of his slightly hefty contract.

Baltimore is the wrong place to be if you're a receiver that wants to get the ball.

Should be right up Jacoby's alley.

Ran into Vonta Leach yesterday while waiting for the valet at the Doubletree in NOLA. Let him know he's still welcome back in Houston, but Jacoby would have to stay in Baltimore. Which, in hindsight, was a really dumb thing to say, but I was working off a mean hangover and like 3 hours of sleep.

He then let's me know he's in town for JJ's football camp, and Jacoby bursts right through the door, jumps in their suburban and they take off. We were like 20 deep with the bachelor party group, so everyone got a kick out of it.

We also told the valet guy who it was and it was a good thing he didn't try to throw him the keys lol.
