- According to Salguero, Jones will be receiving a new contract upon returning to the team.
Jones would have been fined over $70,000 for skipping the workouts, but he’ll now be paid $47,000 of that figure.
Jones previously skipped all of the team’s OTAs and there was talk that he could sit out into the season for a new contract. However, it appears as though he realized he didn’t really have the leverage to get a new deal out of Miami.
Jones, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2010. He later signed a five-year, $30.81 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed with the Dolphins back in 2013.
Jones still has another two years remaining on his current deal and stands to make base salaries of $7.225 million and $7.06 million over the next two years.
In 2015, Jones appeared in all 16 games and recorded 136 tackles, two sacks, five interceptions with two being returned for touchdowns, a fumble recovery and 10 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 13 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
