There will be plenty more touchdown celebrations to watch in Baltimore.

Wide receiver Jacoby Jones signed a four-year contract to remain with the Ravens on Wednesday, after reportedly having a visit lined up with the Giants for the day.

Visit or not, the Ravens and Jones clearly maintained some dialogue before reaching an agreement.

Jones is an added deep threat presence in the receiving game, and is someone Gary Kubiak was familiar with when he was in Houston. Jones played under Kubiak before leaving Houston for Baltimore in 2012.

Jones had 455 yards and two touchdowns in 2013, but missed four games due to a knee injury sustained in the season-opener against Denver. Jones' most memorable play of his Baltimore tenure — and perhaps his career — was the 70-yard touchdown reception he had against the Broncos in the 2012 AFC Championship, which sent the game to overtime. The Ravens would go on to win 38-35.

In addition to his deep game, Jones is an exceptional kickoff and punt returner. Having that kind of stability at receiver and on special teams will help the Ravens moving forward.
