Jones has previously visited the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans.

Jones' four-year, $12 million contract was terminated last week by the Ravens, saving them $750,000 against the salary cap.

Jones, 30, scored two touchdowns in the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers, and his legacy also includes the "Mile-High Miracle" touchdown against the Denver Broncos in the 2013 AFC divisional-round.

He was due a $2.5 million base salary in 2015 and was one year into a contract that included a $3.5 million signing bonus.

Jones made $4.5 million last season, but didn't hit a $500,000 incentive clause for receptions. The New Orleans native caught just nine passes for 131 yards and zero touchdowns last season. He dropped several passes early and lost playing time.

Jones also had four fumbles, losing two.

Jones averaged 9.2 yards per punt return last season. He averaged 30.6 yards per kickoff return with one touchdown, a 108-yard kickoff return in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He ranked second in the NFL in kickoff return average.
