  • Josina Anderson reports that Jones will receive a one-year contract from the Dolphins.

Jones tells Anderson of signing with the Dolphins: “I’m excited to go down there to continue my career. Our whole D-line is about to be trill.”

Jones previously met with Dolphins, Steelers and Cowboys since free agency opened a few months ago a month ago. However, reports indicated that the Dolphins were likely the team to beat for Jones.

Miami has made a point to sign players that will impact their 2017 compensatory picks, which explains why they waited until now to get a deal done.

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.

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.

We had him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
