Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones will report to minicamp on Wednesday, according to a report from TheMMQB’s Albert Breer. Jones had been holding out from all offseason activities with the Dolphins as he looked for a new contract from the club.
Per sources, Dolphins S Reshad Jones will report to minicamp today. Missed Tuesday and this will be his 1st appearance there this offseason.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) June 15, 2016
Reshad Jones is actually already at the Dolphins' facility, so that's one minicamp holdout that's over.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) June 15, 2016
Jones was looking for a new contract that would pay him around $10 million a year and would add guaranteed money to his deal. He has two years remaining on his current deal, however, and teams typically do not re-negotiate with players until they are entering the final year on a contract. It is unclear if any new deal was reached between Jones and the Dolphins, who were reportedly in discussions about a possible new contract.
Miami opened minicamp on Monday with physicals, holding their first day of practices on Tuesday. Jones could be fined for missing Tuesday’s practices, a fine that would cost him around $25,000. The minicamp will run through Thursday.
