The Ravens landed the veteran wide receiver and kick returner that they have been seeking, agreeing to a two-year, $7 million deal today with former Houston Texans wide receiver Jacoby Jones. Jones visited with Ravens officials over the past couple of days. The news was first revealed on Twitter by current Ravens, Vonta Leach and Bernard Pollard who were teammates of Jones' in Houston, and it was confirmed by industry sources. Jones, who caught 31 balls for 512 yards and also served as Houston's primary punt returner, was released by the Texans last week.

Jacoby Jones ended up being the Ravens' top free-agent acquisition during last offseason. This past season, Jones tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return and became the first player in NFL history to record multiple KOR-TD of at least 105 yards (108 and 105). He set franchise records for kick return TD's in a season (2 KOR and 1 PR) and averaged 30.7 yards per kickoff return. With 31 seconds left in regulation, Jones also had the 70-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco which tied the game before the Ravens beat the Denver Broncos in double overtime on Jan. 12. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said he had some help in signing Jones.

The Ravens will waste no time in honoring one of the franchise's best all-time players. The team announced Monday that linebacker Ray Lewis, who retired following the Super Bowl after playing 17 seasons with the Ravens, will be enshrined in the team's Ring of Honor at halftime of the Sept. 22 game against the Houston Texans. That is the Ravens' second home game of the season. They'll celebrate their Super Bowl championship before their home opener on Sept. 15 against the Cleveland Browns.

Are you getting the feeling things are breaking really well for the Ravens? Like the moon is in the Seventh House and Jupiter's aligned with Mars and all that? Now they get to play the Houston Texans in the AFC divisional-round game Sunday. The same Texans they beat 29-14 at M&T Bank Stadium back in October. The ones led by a third-string rookie quarterback. Who was a fifth-round draft pick. And has a separated left shoulder. Yeah, those Texans. And the Ravens get to play them at home, too. Where they're only 8-0 this season.

The Ravens' regular-season finale Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals is like the final preseason game - it's just one more test before the new season begins. So, you can yawn through that one like you do during actual preseason games, and then once it is over, the real fun begins. Right now, the Ravens are the No. 4 seed in the AFC and could move up to No. 3, depending on the outcome of a few other games Sunday. But they don't need anything to change. With the current seeds, the Ravens are in good position.

The Ravens confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the team practiced without three defensive starters in defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, nose tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu and cornerback Jimmy Smith. Ngata suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee and an injured right shoulder in the Sunday's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys. Kemoeatu is also dealing with a right knee injury, and Smith injured his groin Sunday. Offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie participated on a limited basis due to a thigh injury.

Ed Reed will be back in Baltimore after all, this time playing for the New York Jets. The Jets announced today that they have agreed to terms with the Ravens' longtime free safety just a couple of days after Reed was released by the Houston Texans. The move reunites Reed with his former defensive coordinator in Baltimore, Rex Ryan , who is now the head coach of the Jets.  The Jets will face the Ravens next Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, giving Reed a second opportunity to return to the city where he played for the first 11 seasons of his NFL career.

With the Ravens in their bye week, Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson takes an in-depth look at their 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday. Strategy: The Ravens' approach was wildly ineffectual, struggling mightily against the AFC South-leading Texans. The no-huddle was abandoned by Cam Cameron because it rarely works in noisy road venues; it was used once for a run by Ray Rice that lost 2 yards. The running game was scrapped hastily after Rice gained 27 yards on his first three carries.

The Ravens signed Jacoby Jones as a triple threat who can catch passes as a wide receiver and return kicks and punts. The six-year veteran will get to undertake all three assignments this season. Special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said after Tuesday's practice at the team's training facility in Owings Mills that Jones is the primary kick returner at this time. Punt returns will be shared by Jones and Lardarius Webb, but with Webb starting at cornerback, that role could be shifted more in Jones' direction.

From the stands, fans watching the tackles and the touchdowns might think football is a game of sheer brawn. But up close, football is a game you grab with both hands - however fragile they might be. These photographs are from last week's game, in which the Ravens beat the Houston Texans, 16-15.
