That spark was missing.
The Chargers have moved on from the veteran, releasing the 31-year-old on Tuesday. He signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract in March of which he collects $2.5 million. Jones returned five punts for minus-4 yards. On Sunday, he watched a punt that needed to be fair caught bounce 19 yards to his own 3-yard line.
Wide receiver Javontee Herndon is expected to handle Jones' duties.

San Diego Chargers
G Orlando Franklin (ankle), WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring), CB Craig Mager (hamstring), LB Tourek Williams (foot)
T King Dunlap (concussion)
T Chris Hairston (ankle)
Remember, Martavis Bryant is dealing with a knee "tweak" and is unlikely to play on Monday night, per reports. He's not yet on the 53-man roster so the Steelers don't have to list him on the injury report. For the Chargers, Stevie Johnson is out and Malcom Floyd is questionable, though it appears he will play provided he can pass his final concussion tests. With Johnson out, Floyd is a Sneaky Start, though Dontrelle Inman will get some run as well.

Ladarius Green will play today despite a concussion last week and could put up at least lower-end TE1 numbers.

WR Jacoby Jones (ankle) questionable to return.
Jones never returned to the game.
He stole the show last week during the Ravens’ second OTA practice open to the media. Aiken hauled in a deep bomb, stretched for a fingertips grab over the middle, tiptoed the sideline and out leapt a defender for a score.
Aiken was a jack-of-all-trades last season too in a breakout campaign. He caught 24 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season. He scored a 19-yard touchdown against the New England Patriots in the divisional playoffs.
With Torrey Smith in San Francisco and Jacoby Jones in San Diego, Aiken now has a chance to become a starting wide receiver. There’s a lot of competition for the spot, but Aiken is competing on the first team and looks to have just as much a chance as any other.

WR DeAndre Carter is only 5 feet 8 and 185 pounds, but he was one of the quickest and most active players on the field in the portion of Ravens’ mincamp open to reporters on Saturday.
Carter was a coveted college free agent, but he looks up to Steve Smith, so signing with the Ravens made sense. He also had an extremely prolific college career, albeit against lesser competition. Carter caught 99 passes for 1,321 yards and 17 touchdowns last season and has return skills that could come into play with the Ravens looking to replace Jacoby Jones.
The article goes on to say that the Ravens' receiving lineup will be tough to crack, but the team is generally hurting for playmakers at the position. If Carter displays a skill set that the team needs, then he'll make the cut.
