Chargers sign wide receiver/kicker returner Jacoby Jones

SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers on Friday signed Jacoby Jones, the wide receiver and kicker returner who was a major contributor to the Ravens' last Super Bowl championship but who was cut by Baltimore last week.

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said in announcing Jones' two-year deal that one of San Diego's offseason goals was to upgrade its return game.

Said Telesco: ''We feel Jacoby brings a dynamic aspect to our kick and punt returns that we need and he also has solid experience playing wide receiver.''

The 30-year-old Jones played three seasons with Baltimore after a five-year run with Houston.
