Dolphins safety Reshad Jones who last season took a step toward establishing himself among the NFL’s top safeties has signed a four-year contract extension with the team according to a NFL source.
The deal which locks up Jones through 2017 could be worth as much as $30 million and guarantees him $15 million.
Jones the fourth-year player out of Georgia was due to earn $1.3 million this season. He held out one day during OTAs (Organized Team Activities) during the off-season reportedly because he was upset the Dolphins hadn’t made any progress with him toward an extension.
Jones one of the best tacklers on the team had a career-best 94 tackles last season to go along with a team-best four interceptions two forced fumbles and two recovered fumbles. He also had one sack.
Last year Jones showed some versatility by becoming a force as a blitzing safety and so far in training camp he’s maintained that skill in coordinator Kevin Coyle’s aggressive style.
BEST OF MAXIM

Many experts and members of the media will tell you to disregard what goes on in the preseason, others will tell you that you need to pay attention to every player on each snap, that being said there is a fine line of things that should excite or concern fans when it comes to preseason football.
Things to be concerned about :
1) Jonathan Martin - Going into this season...
The Miami Dolphins returned to the practice field on Tuesday, hoping to fix the mistakes made in the horrid performance Sunday night to the Cowboys. Sadly, the Dolphins offense failed to give us much confidence that they learned from their errors on Sunday. Moreover, the Dolphins as a team need to begin to show some progress as this preseason moves along. I know, I know, they’ve...
The Miami Dolphins have been practicing for 2 weeks, but by the looks of things on Sunday night, they’re going to need a lot more practice. The Dolphins were sloppy from the beginning of the game when they fumbled on their first offensive play from scrimmage. The handoff from Ryan Tannehill to Lamar Miller appeared to be good, but Miller just missed it. Tannehill was ‘credited’...
Miami Dolphins talented safety Reshad Jones can relax now, after finally getting a new deal.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that Jones and the Dolphins have agreed to a four-year, $29 million extension, with $15 million guaranteed.
Jones is set to earn an average of $7.003 million per year with the new extension, and will be the NFL’s sixth highest paid safety.
DAVIE, Fla. -- Sure, the Miami Dolphins line up 11 guys on offense. But none of them so far has been No. 11.
In a scrimmage last week before fans at Sun Life Stadium and in their first preseason game Sunday, the Dolphins were without wide receiver Mike Wallace, their most pivotal offseason acquisition who has been sidelined with a groin strain. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill sure is...
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins WR Mike Wallace is practicing with the team for the first time in two weeks. Hampered by a groin injury, Wallace put his speed on display by catching a 40-yard touchdown pass from QB Ryan Tannehill during the practice.
Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was seen limping off the practice field today.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Miller will be just fine.
Despite limping off field in practice, Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is fine. Carry on.

For an owner who has endured four consecutive losing seasons, Miami Dolphins boss Stephen Ross sounds remarkably patient.
He resisted any temptation Wednesday to say he expected a double-digit win total or playoff berth this year, even after he committed about $150 million to free-agent acquisitions over the offseason.
Instead, Ross said he wants to see progress and growth in the...
DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins locked up one of their defensive stalwarts Tuesday. It sounds like one of their top offensive players won't be a hard sell when the time comes.
The Dolphins signed safety Reshad Jones to a four-year, 30 million contract extension. He's now under contract through the 2017 season.
Miami center Mike Pouncey took special note of the signing...
Victor Cruz is a good teammate, and extremely loyal.
Cruz who just cashed in on a $45 million deal thinks Hakeem Nicks is worth way more than that, and told USA Today, that Nicks should get the same deal that Mike Wallace got from the Dolphins, if not more.
“Absolutely, Hakeem is worth Mike Wallace money,” Cruz told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday. “He’s worth whatever his numbers...
The Miami Dolphins have reason to be optimistic going into the 2013 season. However, if Lauren Tannehill keeps interrupting practice to chit chat with her husband than they may need to calm that optimisim. Then again, we’re not complaining. Lauren is one of the top WAGs of the league…
And for those Dolphins fans who are going to start spazzing saying she didn’t interrupt practice...
Ryan Tannehill - Miami Dolphins Clearly, Tannehill should not be a starting QB in a 10, 12 or even a 14 team league. But if you play in 2 QB formats, or if injuries knock out a QB or 2 this season, Ryan Tannehill could be extremely valuable. 3 QBs above him are Michael Vick, Ben Roethlisberger and Sam Bradford. Vick could lose his job any week, Big Ben has no offensive line and Sam...
