The wide receiver has good -- and bad -- memories of his last two visits to the stadium. In the Ravens’ 29-14 victory on Oct. 16, Jones caught four passes for 76 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown haul in the third quarter.
But his most recent memory occurred on Jan 15 when he fumbled a punt return that the Ravens converted into a touchdown in a 20-13 win in an AFC divisional playoff game. Jones, 27, said he has long forgotten about that miscue.
“It’s a new year and a new team,” he said. “It’s ironic that it happened against this team, but it’s a new year and a new team. Life goes on. If you’re the type of person that dwells on mistakes in the past, you’re never going to succeed and move on in life.”
Jones figures to be the leading candidate to man the No. 3 receiver spot in the Ravens offense as his career totals of 127 receptions for 1,741 yards and 11 touchdowns overwhelm those of LaQuan Williams (four catches for 46 yards) and Tandon Doss.
Jones said he is more than comfortable with whatever tasks the coaches assign to him. “Whatever my role is, I’m going to use it to the best of my ability,” he said. “I’m going to do more with less.”
