Reshad Jones is not happy about his contract and feels he should be paid more. But Jones is already one of the highest paid safeties in the NFL, he is due to make $14.285 over the next two seasons. Jones is threatening to skip offseason workouts and is looking for a contract that has $10-$11 million per year. Jones is one of the best safeties in the league and was finally rewarded with a Pro Bowl appearance. He feels underpaid and the Dolphins may just bite, because they need him on that defense.
