Jones, who was cut by the Ravens on Feb. 25, signed a two-year deal with the San Diego Chargers on Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Chargers are scheduled to play at M&T Bank Stadium in 2015, which means the Ravens will face one of their Super Bowl heroes this season.
It'll likely benefit the Ravens if the reunion comes early in the regular season, when the weather is warmer and Justin Tucker hits most of his kickoffs out of the end zone. Jones scored five touchdowns in his 23 home games with the Ravens (three kickoff returns, two receiving).
The Ravens released Jones to avoid paying him a $2.5 million base salary. It freed up only $750,000 in cap room.
The Ravens have faced plenty of players from their championship team in Baltimore over the last two seasons. It's a list that's included linebacker Paul Kruger, offensive tackle Michael Oher, tight end Ed Dickson and even safety Ed Reed twice in 2013 (he was with both the Texans and Jets that season).
