Dolphins sign Reshad Jones to 4-year, $30 million extension

Reshad Jones burst onto the scene last season, proving himself to be one of the league’s top safeties. Despite being snubbed by the Pro Bowl voters (mainly fans, but also his peers), Jones has been rewarded by the Dolphins with a four-year contract extension totaling $30 million according to Adam Schefter.

Miami promised they would negotiate with Jones after he held out of the first day of mini-camps this off-season.

Jones was drafted in the 5th round in 2010 by General Manager Jeff Ireland and has quickly become one of Ireland’s best picks.

Jones had one assisted tackle last night against the Cowboys in very limited action.

Locking down Jones is only the first extension likely to be announced in the near future.  Paul Soliai and Randy Starks are both in contract years.  It is not known whether the team will keep both defensive tackles or just one as both will come at a high price tag. If Ireland were to choose one over the other, Soliai likely has the edge as he is the younger of the two.
