Baltimore Ravens decided to part ways with kick returner and wide receiver Jacoby Jones on Wednesday, according to the team's website. Jones signed a four-year contract with the Ravens last year. He was due to make $2.5 million in base salary for 2015. Releasing him now saves the Ravens $750,000 in cap space and gives him the best opportunity to get picked up by another team at the higher salary instead of him being a post-June 1 release.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had a slow season with only nine receptions for 131 yards in 16 games and had 10 touchdowns in three years with the Ravens. He was just not a good pass-catcher this season.This "Mile-high Miracle" at age 30 might have already seen this best days, however, this talented, charismatic player made many big plays that made a difference in the game. Ravens fans and his team will miss this likable, downfield sprinter.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones did not have a good 2014 season and could be a potential release. Jones signed a four-year, $12 million contract with the Ravens last March, which included $4.5 million guaranteed. He’ll cost the Ravens about $3.4 million against the salary cap. Releasing Jones would save about $750,000 in salary-cap space.
He only caught nine passes for 131 yards for the entire season. However, as a kick returner, he is greased lightning. He averaged 30.6 yards per return, which was the second most in the NFL for 2014. All fans remember the 108-yard return which resulted in a touchdown during Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Source: Baltimore Ravens
Fantasy Impact: Plain and simple, Jones is fast. This veteran with the well-known long strides, and the proper blockage, can sprint downfield effortlessly. This 6'2" wide receiver slipped on the depth chart which has his career with the Ravens a little shaky. He ends the season with 978 kick-off return yards with one touchdown.

Jacoby Jones led the Ravens in receiving in Saturdays preseason tilt versus Dallas, racking up 49 yards on 3 catches.
Fantasy Impact: Rarely utilized in the receiving game, Jones is expected to be a non factor to fantasy rosters again this year. He had just 37 receptions in 2013. With the addition of Steve Smith, Jones will be relegated to the waiver wire in fantasy leagues unless the injury bug strikes the receiving core in Baltimore.
