Dolphins, Reshad Jones agree on contract extension

The Dolphins weren’t going to lose safety Reshad Jones as a free agent this offseason and they made a move to ensure they won’t be losing him next offseason either.

Jones was heading into the final year of his contract, but that will no longer be a concern as multiple sources report that the team has signed him to a contract extension. It’s a four-year extension to his current deal, so his contract now runs through 2021 with Adam Schefter of ESPN reporting that the deal is worth up to $60 million with $35 million in guaranteed money.

Jones only played six games last season because of a shoulder injury, but is expected to be healthy in time for offseason work. When he has been healthy, Jones has played at the high level that his new contract would suggest and the Dolphins would seem to believe that he’ll remain at that level upon his return to action.

The Dolphins have also re-signed wide receiver Kenny Stills and defensive lineman Andre Branch ahead of free agency with tight ends Anthony Fasano and Julius Thomas expected to join the team when the new league year gets underway.

    Another good move by the Fins. They are letting their players know that if they are successful they will be rewarded.

    The most underrated strong safety in the league. Deserves every penny.

    This is a great move, RJ is a great safety playing at an all pro level before injury. Love that the Fins are finally being smart and locking up their own talent instead of chasing fools gold with big contracts. Wow has the culture changed!

    Totally makes sense! This is a perennial Pro-Bowler. Dolphins playing smart and signing their own. FINALLY LEARNED! The Defense really suffered last year with him out on injury.

    So stoked that this contract essentially makes Jones a Dolphin for life. One of the best safeties in the league!

    It would be nice to lock-up Landry long-term too.

    All this excitement in Dolphins land almost makes me forget all this political crap in the country. Glad to still see that the love for our Dolphins can still bring us all together….and be happy and agree and be cheerful. Sports is a good thing.

    Go Phins!!!
