In February, Jacoby Jones became the ninth man to return a kick for a touchdown in the Super Bowl. His 108 yard return is a moment that will live in the memories of Ravens fans for a long time. It seemed at the time to be the icing on the cake, but the blackout turned the tide in the favor of the West Coasters. Jacoby Jones joined a club that seems to be a blessing and a curse:
The one thing that all these men have in common is that they really never became more than a kick returner. Devin Hester still has a chance to be a decent wide receiver in the NFL, but the others proved that scored a return touchdown in the Super Bowl is about as good as it gets.
Jacoby Jones will try to make a meaningful impact as a receiver on the Ravens this year. If Jacoby plans to be a number two receiver on a playoff team he will need to buck the trend of the special teams Super Bowl heroes.
