Dolphins Believed To Be Closing In On Deal With DE Jason Jones

David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports that free agent DE Jason Jones is believed to be closing in on an agreement with the Dolphins.

Jones has previously met with Steelers and Cowboys since free agency opened over a month ago before taking a second visit to the Dolphins last week.

There was talk that the Cowboys could turn their attention to signing Jones after the news that Demarcus Lawrence is facing a four-game suspension, but it appears as though the Dolphins could be his best option.

Jones, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2008. He played out his rookie contract with Tennessee and signed a free agent deal with the Seahawks. However, he spent just a year in Seattle before signing with the Lions the following year.

Jones is currently among the best available defensive linemen in the free agent market.

In 2015, Jones appeared in 15 games for the Lions and recorded 31 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 43 edge rusher out of 110 qualifying players.
