Dolphins reward Reshad Jones with four-year extension

The Dolphins promised to engage in contract talks with safety Reshad Jones when Jones ended his boycott of offseason workouts. And the Dolphins have now held up their end of the bargain.

Not only have they talked. They’ve struck a deal.

Per a league source, the Dolphins have signed Jones to a four-year extension. He’s under contract through 2017.

A fifth-round pick out of Georgia in the 2010 draft, Jones was due to make $1.323 million in 2013.

In July, Jones said he wants to be known as one of the premiere safeties in the NFL. While the numbers aren’t in yet, Jones likely will be getting paid like one of the premiere safeties in the NFL.

4 years 30 million.

That's a lot of money for Reshad, but it's good he's locked in long term.

Now live up to the deal. I think it was Adam Beasley who tweeted that opposing QBs had something like a 40 QB rating when throwing at Jones.

$15 mil is guaranteed............the contract is an extension, so it's my understanding he'll still get his base salary of $1.3 mil this year........though, I'm sure the contract includes a substantial signing bonus.

$7.5 mil/year (2014-2017), sounds reasonable for a guy that has the potential to one of the better safeties in the league.
