Reshad Jones reconsiders, will attend Dolphins’ OTAs

Reshad Jones AP

Dolphins safety Reshad Jones has changed his mind and decided to attend Organized Team Activities.

Jones, who is unhappy with his contract, skipped Monday’s voluntary workout. But Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Jones will show up to the Dolphins’ OTA session today.

Jones’s agent, Joel Segal, and Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland spoke several times on Monday, and Ireland told Segal the Dolphins would open discussions on a new contract “eventually” if Jones showed up, Salguero reports. Whether “eventually” means any time soon, and whether the Dolphins’ offer will be enough to satisfy Jones, is a separate question. But Ireland’s assurance was enough to get Jones to report.

The Dolphins chose Jones in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL draft, and he’s scheduled to make $1.3 million this year, on the final season of his rookie contract. Jones has been a good player in Miami, earning a starting job in his second season and starting all 16 games while leading the team with four interceptions last year, so the Dolphins would like to keep him around for several more years.

    Only true playmaker in the secondary last year. Only safety in the NFL last year to have 90 tackles, 4 Ints, and 2 Fumble recoveries. And they should resign just on that one handed pic against Brady last year haha. Glad he’s showing up and not causing a distraction.

    That, or he doesn’t want to get “Dansbyed” later down the road.

    Good call Reshad, point made, first day didn’t hurt the team, now go out and earn what you are demanding. 1.3 mill for a 5th round pick sounds pretty good to me, back it up with two good seasons and you will be rewarded. Just don’t mess with Philbin, he’s about WE not ME.

    He is one of the best players on the Dolphins. Very under-rated and not well known but he is one of the best safeties in the league. I’m glad he is showing up and I hope they work out a long-term deal.

    Ever notice, no matter how good of a point you make, there is always someone who is trolling and going to give you a thumbs down. Reverse psychology….let’s see how many thumbs down this comment will get.
