The Baltimore Ravens have reached a two-year deal with Jacoby Jones.

Jones, was released on May 1 by the Houston Texans after failing to live up to expectations. He managed 31 catches for 512 yards last season in a season when star receiver Andre Johnson was sidelined nine games with injuries.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Jones becomes the Ravens' No. 3 wide receiver and could take over punt return duties from cornerback Lardarius Webb. He visited the Ravens on Monday after meeting with the Carolina Panthers last week.

"Adding Jacoby gives us another proven downfield weapon in our passing game and production with our returns," general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. "His experience makes the offense better, and the competition he brings can help raise our levels at receiver and with punt and kickoff returns."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones could slide into a WR3 role behind Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin while handling some (or all) of the return duties. He never lived up to expectations in Houston, so maybe a change of scenery will do him some good.
