Texans Dump WR Jacoby Jones

The Texans have released veteran wide receiver Jacoby Jones.

Jones caught 31 passes for 512 yards and two touchdowns while playing in nearly 75 percent of the Texans’ offensive snaps, falling short of matching his 2010 season that saw him catch a career-high 51 receptions for 562 yards. In the second playoff game in Texans’ history, Jones fumbled a punt that was recovered by the Baltimore Ravens at the Texans’ two-yard line. The Ravens would ultimately score a touchdown and the Texans’ season would end with a 20-13 loss.

As if his fate weren’t already sealed for Jones, the Texans selected wide receivers DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin in the middle rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Jones had two years and $7 million remaining, including a $3 million base salary in 2012, on his three-year, $10.5 million contract he signed last July. Jones’ release clears $2 million in cap space.
