Ravens sign Jacoby Jones to a two-year deal
The Texans cut Jones last week, a move that follows him mishandling a punt during an AFC divisional playoff loss to the Ravens that led to a Baltimore touchdown.
Jones fell out of favor after fumbling twice in that game, losing one, with fans scapegoating him for the defeat to Baltimore.
Jones, 27, was due a $3 million base salary this year.
The speedy former third-round draft pick from Lane College caught 31 passes for 512 yards and two touchdowns last season.
The Texans obtained two wide receivers in the draft, selecting Ohio State's DeVier Posey and Michigan State's Keshawn Martin in the third round and fourth round, respectively.
Jones is a highly-regarded return man, averaging 10.6 yards per punt return with three touchdowns. He has a career 23.3 yard average on kickoff returns with one score.
Although the Texans shopped Jones to other NFL teams during the draft, they were unable to strike a deal and wound up releasing him.
For his career, Jones has 127 receptions for 1,741 yards and 11 touchdowns.
