Dolphins waived DE Jason Jones.
The move is surprising two days ahead of Miami's Wild Card trip to Pittsburgh. A big part of the Fins' defensive line rotation, Jones posted 3.5 sacks across 14 appearances and wasn't playing noticeably poorly. The Miami Herald reported Jones requested his release after the Dolphins' coaching staff informed him he would not be active for Saturday's playoff game. Jan 6 - 1:14 PM

NFL suspended Dolphins DE Jason Jones two games for violating the league's policy against substance abuse.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Jones' suspension is for an "OWI," or operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The incident reportedly occurred this past summer, but was never reported publicly. Jones has not been having a great season for the Dolphins, but he is a critical member of the team's deep defensive line rotation. Jones has 2.5 sacks through ten games.

Dolphins signed DE Jason Jones, formerly of the Lions.

Jones had early interest from Dallas and Pittsburgh, but struggled for offers outside of Miami. He'll have to settle for rotational snaps behind Mario Williams and Cameron Wake after starting 31 games the last two seasons. Jones could see more time inside in DC Vance Joseph's scheme.

Free agent DE Jason Jones is still in talks with Miami.

Jones visited the Dolphins twice, but left without a deal. A 31-game starter the last two seasons, he would have to settle for rotational snaps in Miami. Dallas is the only other team to visit with Jones.

Free agent DE Jason Jones visited the Dolphins on Friday.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Steelers have expressed interest in free agent DE Jason Jones.

Jones would likely line up at outside linebacker in the Steelers' 3-4, but he has the size and edge-setting ability to see snaps at defensive end. Jones has 9.5 sacks over the last two seasons. He is expected to meet with the Dolphins in the coming days.

Free agent DE Jason Jones will visit the Dolphins.

Jones had one of his more productive seasons in 2015, earning 4.5 sacks over 556 snaps as the Lions' starting left end. The Dolphins replaced Olivier Vernon with Mario Williams earlier this week but they're not done adding pieces to their defensive line. Ex-Giant Robert Ayers will visit Miami after his sit-down with the Buccaneers.

Lions LE Jason Jones is recovering from offseason knee surgery.

It sounds like a cleanup procedure one year after Jones suffered a torn patellar tendon. Jones is expected back for training camp, although this could open the door for Larry Webster or Devin Taylor to make a run at left-end snaps.
Thu, Jun 18, 2015 01:27:00 PM

Lions GM Martin Mayhew said the team is bringing back DE Jason Jones.

A report surfaced earlier this offseason that Jones could be released to make room for free agent Ndamukong Suh. The Lions are keeping him. Jones tied a career-high with five sacks in 2014 and was especially good against the run. Hanging onto both Jones and George Johnson could be a sign the Lions are getting ready for life after Suh. Mayhew said Jones' $3.15M contract won't be restructured.

MLive.com considers Lions LE Jason Jones a strong candidate to be released this offseason.

After rupturing his patellar tendon last season, Jones returned to start all 17 games, including Detroit's playoff loss. He was used as an early-down edge-setter against the run. Jones received positive marks in that area, but is set to count $4 million against the 2015 cap. The Lions need to pinch every penny if they're going to hammer out a mega-extension with Ndamukong Suh.

Lions DE Jason Jones (knee) has been a limited participant at this week's OTAs.

He remains on track for training camp. Jones is coming off a ruptured patellar tendon sustained in Week 3 of last season. He's expected to start at strong-side defensive end and kick inside as a rusher in sub packages.
Wed, May 21, 2014 10:31:00 AM

Lions LE Jason Jones (knee) expects to be ready for the offseason program.

Jones tore his left patellar tendon in Week 3. MLive.com expects him to return as the starter opposite RE Ziggy Ansah, though Devin Taylor could also be in the mix. Patellar tendon tears are tough injuries to come back from. Jones will turn 28 in May and generated just two pressures in 87 snaps last season.

Lions placed LE Jason Jones on injured reserve with torn left patellar tendon, ending his season.

The 27-year-old end went down with a non-contact injury in Sunday's win. Signed to a three-year, $9.5 million deal in March, Jones ends his first year in the Motor City having generated just two quarterback pressures in 87 snaps (per Pro Football Focus). Andre Fluellen is taking Jones' roster spot, though Willie Young, Israel Idonije and perhaps rookie Devin Taylor will split up his role.
