TAMPA, FLA. — Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones' struggles with his hands continued Sunday as he dropped his sixth pass of the season.

Jones dropped an accurate throw from quarterback Joe Flacco during the second quarter of the Ravens' 48-17 rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

The drop obviously didn't affect the Ravens' outcome, but it continued a season-long trend of shaky hands for Jones. Signed to a four-year, $12.005 million contract -- which included $3.5 million guaranteed with another $2 million available through $500,000 annual incentive clauses triggered by receptions -- Jones has caught only four passes for 50 yards through six games.

He's on pace to finish the season with 12 catches for 160 yards.

Jones played 19 snaps on offense as wide receivers Michael Campanaro and Kamar Aiken also got into the mix and both caught their first NFL touchdowns.

On a positive note, Jones was more decisive as a returner one week after misjudging and muffing a punt during a road loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Jones ran up to catch punts to avoid the Ravens losing field position. He returned two punts for 15 yards with one fair catch. He also had a season-long 58-yard kickoff return.
