The Dolphins' front office has reportedly, recently returned from vacation. It hasn't taken them long to get back to work. The National Football Post is reporting that fifth-round pick Reshad Jones has agreed to a four-year, $1.95 million deal, with a signing bonus worth $160,000.
Jones is expected to ink his signature to the contract today, which would leave only Jared Odrick, Koa Misi, and John Jerry unsigned. With the way this regime swiftly works through rookie negotiations though, I'm still expecting all to sign before camp opens up in a little under three weeks.
Jones meanwhile, will look to make some noise when the pads come on, as he had a relatively quiet spring of workouts. He is projected to start camp as the second team free safety, but will look to unseat Chris Clemons, who has received high-praise from his OTA work.
It will be interesting to see if Jones can make it much of a competition at all, as it currently appears to be Clemons' job to lose. Will that mean Jones eventually moves to strong safety, where he seems to be a more logical fit, or will free safety be his permanent home? I guess only time will tell.
