San Diego Chargers Sign WR/KR Jacoby Jones to 2-Year Deal

New, comments

The Chargers made their first splash in free agency with former Ravens wideout Jacoby Jones.

Recently released by the Baltimore Ravens, Jacoby Jones immediately drew interest from the Chargers, who have lacked a dynamic kick returner since the departure of Darren Sproles.

Jones, who will be 31 by the start of the 2015 season, can earn up to $5.5 million over 2 years in San Diego. He has 9 career touchdowns as a returner (kickoffs and punts combined), including at least one kickoff return score in each of the last 3 seasons.

This signing could very well affect the potential signing of the other Chargers receivers. Can they afford to have 2 special teams specialists at receiver and bring back Seyi Ajirotutu? Will they they be willing to pay Eddie Royal knowing his value as a punt returner is diminished? We will know soon enough, as the real fun begins Tuesday, March 10th.
