Ravens sign WR Brandon Jones

Posted by Andy Benoit

The Baltimore Ravens have always had a predilection for bringingB. Jones (US Presswire) in street free agents with starting experience (see Frank Walker, Walt Harris, Ken Hamlin or, if you will, Donte’ Stallworth). On Friday, the Ravens signed former Titans/49ers wideout Brandon Jones.

After catching 41 passes for the Titans in ’08, Jones signed a four-year, $16 million free agent deal with the Niners. That was before the Niners knew they’d get Michael Crabtree in the ’09 draft.

Jones never produced in San Francisco (almost literally – he played eight games and caught just one pass). He was let go after one year. The Seahawks had him in camp in 2010 but went in a different direction. Thus, the 28-year-old comes to Baltimore after having been out of football this past season.

Jones is a fluid, athletic runner, but his addition should have little bearing on whether the Ravens re-sign T.J. Houshmandzadeh or Stallworth.
