If he plays his cards right and dances down the appropriate sideline, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones could possibly get to see Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin roaming the big white stripe for the next four years after the unrestricted free agent re-signed with the team on Wednesday.
According to several media reports, Jones’ new four-year contract has a base value of $12 million and he can earn up to $14 million through incentives. However, only $4.5 million of his new deal is guaranteed and it’s very unlikely that he plays out the entire contract.
Jones was originally drafted by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Lane College and signed with the Ravens in May of 2012. In his last two seasons in Baltimore, he has recorded a total of 67 regular-season catches for 861 yards and three touchdowns.
As a return man, Jones has registered 2,637 in combined kickoff and punt return yardage over the course of the last two regular-seasons to go along with four touchdowns.
