The Dolphins are scheduled to meet with former Detroit Lions' defensive end, Jason Jones Saturday afternoon, according to Barry Jackson of the Sun Sentinel.

It seems as though this has become an ongoing trend over the last 24 hours.  The Dolphins are continuing to search for depth along the defensive line, scheduled to visit with defensive end Jason Jones on Saturday.  Miami is hoping to improve a defensive unit that ranked 28th against the run in 2015.

Jones, 29, was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.  After a one-year stint with Seattle in 2013, Jones signed a three-year deal worth $9.5 million with the Detroit Lions.  Last season, Jones started 15 games for the Lions, recording 4.5 sacks and 27 tackles.  Throughout his seven-year NFL career, the defensive end amassed, 137 tackles and 28 sacks.

Jones is a natural edge rusher and would be a welcomed addition to the Dolphins already stellar defensive line.
