The future of Ravens wide receiver and kick returner Jacoby Jones remains unresolved. The Ravens are interested in potentially bringing back the pending unrestricted free agent depending upon his salary demands, according to sources. If Jones is looking for the $4 million he earned last season through a $3 million base salary and a $1 million roster bonus, then he'll likely be regarded as an unaffordable luxury item due to the Ravens' relatively tight salary-cap situation. Should Jones test free agency and not garner offers in the $3 million to $4 million range, then the Ravens would likely be willing to retain him at a lower price. Signing the explosive return man prior to free agency by reaching a financial compromise prior to other teams having a chance to bid on him is regarded as unlikely. Nothing is imminent, according to sources. There are scenarios where the Ravens could spend less money on the returner position. They're expected to bring in other wide receivers via the draft or free agency. So, that could affect Jones' prospects for returning.
Does Jacoby Jones have a future with the Ravens?
