Report: Jacoby Jones A Candidate For Release

BALTIMORE -- Team president Dick Cass, GM Ozzie Newsome, assistant GM Eric DeCosta, SVP of football administration Pat Moriarty and head coach John Harbaugh are meeting at owner Steve Bisciotti's Florida home for much of this week to discuss and plan for the off season.

A big topic of conversation will be the salary cap situation.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Jacoby Jones "is viewed as a potential off season release, given his diminished role as a wide receiver during the 2014 season." Jones wasn't targeted during the playoffs after having just 9 receptions for 131 yards in the regular season.

Jones' impact was still felt in his return game with a kick return average of 30.6 yards, second highest in the NFL, he also mishandled two punts, the Sun said. Jones would cost $3.4 million against the cap in 2015 under his current contract.

If Baltimore releases him after June 1, the team would get $2.5 million in cap space, the paper said.
