The Splash Zone 1/14/17: Dolphins Will Address Jones' Contract During Offseason

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Last year at OTA's, Reshad Jones was holding out in hopes of getting a new contract. He returned to the team though and believed he could get things sorted out with the team. Jones is arguably one of the best safeties in the NFL and just wanted to be paid a little more. However, as we know, tragedy struck and Jones was lost for the season. I hope the Dolphins see how important Jones is to that defense and gets him a deal.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
