Dolphins SS Reshad Jones agreed to a contract restructure.
The move saves Miami $6.6 million in cap space. Jones will receive a $4.05 million signing bonus while reducing his base salary from $9.375 million to $970,000. It's not a pay cut as Jones will make the same amount of money in the end. The 30-year-old safety led Miami with 122 tackles last season. Mar 14 - 9:27 AM

Dolphins activated SS Reshad Jones from the active/PUP list.

Jones tweaked something working out on his own before camp kicked off. He missed a week of action and is expected to be limited in practice for a couple days.

Dolphins placed SS Reshad Jones on the active/NFI list.

Per the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, Jones "tweaked something" while working out away from the team and is expected to be fine. The injury isn't related to his 2016 shoulder issue. Jones will miss the first days of training camp, but can be activated at any time.

Dolphins signed SS Reshad Jones to a four-year extension through 2021.

In total, it's a five-year, $60 million contract that contains $35 million guaranteed, rightfully making Jones one of the league's highest-paid safeties. Jones just turned 29 and is elite both against the run and in pass coverage. He missed the final 10 games of the season in 2016 with a torn rotator cuff, but is already back to 100 percent and should return as a difference maker in 2017.

Dolphins GM Chris Grier is optimistic the team will be able to work out an extension with walk-year SS Reshad Jones.

Jones was limited to six games last season because of a shoulder injury, but he is expected to be ready for the offseason program. One of the best safeties in the league, Jones should be looking for a deal near the top of a market just reset by Chiefs SS Eric Berry. It will certainly take more than $10 million a year to get him under contract.

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones said his shoulder has healed.

Jones underwent labrum surgery in October, but it looks like he'll be 100 percent for the offseason program. Still one of the better safeties in the league when healthy, the Dolphins are likely to extend Jones' contract this offseason. As it stands, the 29-year-old is scheduled to hit free agency in 2018.

The Dolphins are expected to address SS Reshad Jones' contract situation this offseason.

Jones held out of OTAs and the first couple days of minicamp last offseason in an effort to get an extension, but it didn't work. He has just one year left on his contract and tore his rotator cuff in Week 6, missing the final 11 games of the season. Jones turns 29 next month and remains one of the best safeties in the league when healthy. He'll likely get a new deal.

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones (shoulder) will miss the remainder of the season.

It's now been confirmed after Jones was seeking a second opinion on his torn rotator cuff. It's a huge loss for the Dolphins' defense after Jones was Pro Football Focus' No. 3 safety last season, finishing No. 1 in run defense. Through six weeks this season, Jones was again PFF's No. 3 safety. Michael Thomas and Walt Aikens are next up. LeSean McCoy gets a big Week 7 boost.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins "fear" SS Reshad Jones suffered a torn rotator cuff.

Eric Decker suffered the same injury a few weeks ago and is now out for the season. A similar fate may await Jones, who was already dealing with a groin injury when he hurt his shoulder in Week 6. Through six games, Jones holds PFF's third-highest safety grade out of 86 qualifiers. It would be a huge blow to a Dolphins' secondary that is already running on fumes.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said SS Reshad Jones (groin) will be a game-time decision Week 6 against the Steelers.

Jones sustained a groin injury early this week and was not able to practice Wednesday. Easily the best player in the secondary, Jones' absence would seriously weaken an already struggling unit. Ben Roethlisberger and company should have a field day Sunday.

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones said he won't hold out of training camp after reporting to minicamp Wednesday.

Jones wants a new contract, but doesn't "want to be a distraction" any longer. The Dolphins likely promised Jones they'd work with him on getting him more guaranteed money on his deal if he showed up for minicamp.
Wed, Jun 15, 2016 12:22:00 PM

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones reported for Day 2 of Miami's three-day minicamp Wednesday.

Up until now, Jones had been skipping the entire offseason program, including the first day of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. It resulted in a fine, but owner Stephen Ross got into the mix, and Jones has now decided to show. With two years left on a four-year, $30 million extension, the sides are again expected to try and renegotiate and add more guaranteed money onto it.
Wed, Jun 15, 2016 09:00:00 AM

The Miami Herald reports "both sides want to work toward an amicable end" in SS Reshad Jones' contract dispute.

Per reporter Armando Salguero, both sides are keen to avoid public drama, and are "reticent about anything that might upset this process." Salguero doesn't mention any potential solutions. Jones is one of the league's top performers at his position, but still has two years remaining on his deal. It's possible he ends up with more guaranteed money, but no new overall cash.

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones will be a no-show for mandatory minicamp.

It's no secret Jones wants a raise. With two years left on his deal, the Dolphins have little incentive to meet his demands. Jones will be subject to over $70,000 in fines if he skips minicamp and would lose around $400,000 per game if his holdout lasts into the season. Beat reporter Adam Beasley said the sense around the league is that Jones "badly misplayed his hand." We're guessing the 28-year-old will come to his senses and report at some point.

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones is not participating at OTAs.

Jones plans to skip the entire offseason. His holdout could carry into mandatory camp despite having two years and $14.285 million remaining on his deal. Already one of the highest-paid safeties, Jones wants an extension closer to $10M-plus annually.
