The San Diego Chargers are signing wide receiver Jacoby Jones to a two-year deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

This move comes less than a week after Jones visited with the Cincinnati Bengalsbut reportedly left the building without a contract offer. He then went on to visit the Tennessee Titans before going on a trip to San Diego, where he apparently was offered a contract.

Jones has played eight seasons in the NFL, most of them with the Houston Texans and the last three years with the Baltimore Ravens. The former third-round pick was named to the 2012 first-team all-pro team and went to the Pro Bowl that same year, while playing a pivotal role in Baltimore's Super-Bowl run that year.

In 44 games with the Ravens, Jones averaged 30.1 yards per kickoff return and ranked first in the team's history. He averaged 9.9 yards per punt return, including a 63-yard touchdown in 2012. He caught 76 passes for 992 yards and three touchdowns over the past three seasons.
