Jacoby Jones Spurns Giants, Bolts For Airport In Middle Of Visit
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Baltimore Ravens and wide receiver Jacoby Jones have agreed on a four-year contract Wednesday.
Financial terms of the deal were not immediately known.
Jones drew interest from other teams as a free agent and met with the New York Giants on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old Jones was selected to the Pro Bowl as a return man in 2012 and started 12 games for Baltimore at wide receiver in 2013.
He signed with the Ravens in 2012 after spending the first five seasons of his career with the Houston Texans.
After losing out on Jones, the Giants could soon see some familiar faces depart. In fact, they already are.
Longtime Giant Justin Tuck, who had been with the team since 2005, accepted a two-year, $11 million contract from the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday. Tuck was a two-time Pro Bowler, a two-time All-Pro selection and a two-time Super Bowl champion with Big Blue.
The Panthers have made free-agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks an offer, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. And according to ESPN, he’s flying to Indianapolis on Thursday night to meet with the Colts.
The 26-year-old caught 56 passes for 896 yards in 15 games for the Giants in 2013. He didn’t score a touchdown.
According to multiple sources, fullback Henry Hynoski was expected to visit the Lions on Thursday. But ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter reported on Thursday afternoon that Hynoski accepted a one-year, $1 million deal to remain with the Giants.
