The Baltimore Ravens will continue to search for a wide receiver this offseason after trading WR Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers. 'I think the hunt goes on,' assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said. 'We're still working. The roster is not set. We're always evaluating. We're always looking at guys. Guys get signed, guys get cut ... Our pro personnel department looks at all available players and we'll make a decision at some point of what we want to do at that position. There are definitely some players out there. We'll consider all options.' The Ravens are also banking on increased production from several wide receivers, including WR Jacoby Jones.
Huddle Up: With a lackluster 37 grabs for 341 yards and a TD in his first season in Baltimore, the Dancing with the Stars performer certainly has room to grow in the Ravens' offense, and the big-play ability he displayed in the postseason (5-147-2) is a good sign that he's headed in that direction.

The Baltimore Ravens may reduce WR Jacoby Jones' time as a punt and kick returner if he is one of the team's starting wide receivers this season.
Huddle Up: Right now there's not much on the Baltimore depth chart that stands between Jacoby and a starting job. David Reed and Tandon Doss would be in line to pick up Jacoby's return-game slack.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones, who had 290 all-purpose yards to establish a new Super Bowl record for total yardage, said recently that he wants to finish his career with the team. 'I want to retire here,' Jones said. He is due a $1 million roster bonus March 16, and he's due $3 million base salary with a $4.9 million salary cap figure. He has a $500,000 escalator clause triggered by total receptions.
Huddle Up: The Ravens are hurting for salary-cap space, but you'd think they'll find a way to keep Jones, who came up absolutely huge in their Super Bowl run.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones set a Super Bowl record with 290 combined yards (206 on kickoff returns, 28 on punt returns, 56-yard pass reception) in Super Bowl XLVII.
Huddle Up: You could make a pretty good case for Jones to have been the Super Bowl MVP, but that award more often than not goes to the winning quarterback and such was the case this year. Jones may not even return to Baltimore next year as the Ravens are tight against the cap, but his Super showing should earn him a return man/WR3 gig somewhere in the NFL.

The Baltimore Ravens could look to sign WR Jacoby Jones to a contract extension in order to lower his 2013 salary-cap figure of $4.9 million.
Huddle Up: While Jones had a limited regular-season impact as a No. 3 wideout, catching 30 passes for 406 yards and a TD, he's definitely had his postseason moments and was a Pro Bowl return man. If the Ravens can keep him around at a lower cap figure that obviously would be the best of both worlds.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Jones not only has value as third WR, but he's key special-teams performer as well. It's early in the week, though, so see what develops as Sunday draws closer.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones managed to return just one punt, and he did not return any kickoffs, in the Week 1 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Jones was used in a prominent role as No. 3 wide receiver, but his workload at wide receiver was not why he saw limited usage on special teams. 'We've got a plan with the other guys. We feel like we have some guys that can do some things,' head coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday, Sept. 11. 'So, that was the plan special teams wise for Jacoby.'
Huddle Up: Fellow WR Deonte Thompson handled the kickoff-return chores for the Ravens, while CB Ladarius Webb also had a punt return. Jones, meanwhile, caught all 3 of the passes thrown his way, good for 46 yards. Expect that rotation to continue as it seemed to work well for all parties in Week 1.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (undisclosed) left practice early Monday, Aug. 6. Head coach John Harbaugh did not have an update on Jones' status.
Huddle Up: As usual, it's wait and see and Jones' status. After 5 largely uneventful receiving seasons with the Texans, Jones is looking to make an impact in Baltimore. Even though Andre Johnson was MIA much of last season, Jones failed to do much with the extra playing time, finishing with 31 catches for 512 yards and a pair of TDs. He figures to be the No. 3 WR with the Ravens behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smih. Just don't expect too much from Jones, and you won't be disappointed.
