Reshad Jones changes mind, will report to OTA

Reshad Jones will show up to the Dolphins OTA session today, a source close to the safety said late Monday night.

Jones initally intended to stay away from the OTA sessions the same way he skipped an offseason condititioning session Monday because he is unahppy with his current contract.

The decision to show up came after Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland and Jones' agent Joel Segal spoke several times late into Monday evening, the source said. Details of the conversation are not known, but according to the Jones family source, Ireland gave Segal some assurance that the Dolphins would open discussions with Jones on a contract extension "eventually" if the player showed up.

It's unclear what "eventualy" means. It's possible the Dolphins could wait to see if Jones continues his good attendance in the offseason program and count that plus his play the last season-and-a-half as reasons for extending the player's contract.

Jones will be in the final year of his rookie deal in 2013 and is scheduled to make $1.3 million according to NFLPA figures. Jones would be a free agent after 2013.

It's also possible the Dolphins are simply stalling to avoid the embarrassment of having a key player skip OTA sessions that are entirely voluntary and in part open to the media. Dolphins coaches hate players missing OTA sessions and minicamps. They view it as a distraction and coach Joe Philbin typically deflects questions about those players, saying instead he wishes to speak only about players who are present.

If the Dolphins can stall Jones and his agent until the start of training camp, an advantage on having the player show up shifts to the team because players missing training camp days while under contract can be fined.

Whatever happens, this much is clear:

Jones, a productive defensive player coming off a good season, is clearly unhappy with his contract and wants an extension.

His camp has made that clear to the Dolphins.

The Dolphins are aware of Jones' feelings but apparently not feeling pressure to give Jones a new contract right away.

This is not over.

we can all sleep better tonight knowing he is showing up today. what a relief, our season is saved.

Smooth Armando...real smooth

Sammo,

If Clay doesn't greatly improve his inconsistent ways, with Keller, Egnew, and Sims, whom all can stretch the seam. Whats Clay's real value to even having a roster spot, 3-4 plays per game, when he may have only 1 catch?

He isn't a rue fb, so his blocking is even suspect. He definitely isn't a short yardage running threat. don't understand the blog hangup on some of our most incomplete players.

I just count my lucky stars many of us here aren't personnel or coaching heads of this team. Then I would be 10 times as convinced as I presently am, we'll "NEVER" make playoffs, let alone win a championship.

Wouldn't logic dictate to delete the first duplicate blog?

You guys sound like teenage girls with boners when you type T Sizzle. Give it up.

Just thought this was worth another viewing...

HAHAHAH!!

Anybody can go to 1 super bowl in thier career and lose: Esiason, Marino & Grossman all did that.
I want a QB that goes to multiple super bowls and wins more tha 1: Elway, Young, Brady, Aikman, Montana, Bradshaw: The real kings of QBs in NFL history.

My favourite play in my time of watching the NFL was the Broncos-Packers super bowl where Elway didn't have a great year passing the ball and they relied on Terrell Davis and their o line. Well Elway scrambles desperately for a key first down where he takes a big shot and spins around. That is doing whatever it takes to win. NFC had a dominant stretch over the AFC at that point in the super bowls too. The Broncos were pretty sizeable underdogs. Doing whatever it takes to win. Elway was a champ, no doubt. True grit.

SportsCenter should replay the hghlights of that game.

Right move by jones to show up,practice hard, show his professionalism. That way he'll have a much better chance of getting paid and becoming a better player !

So what! He's not a Dolphin qb. Get to the Broncos blog horsehead!

God, that homer Armando is an idiot.

The Dolphins sank their Super Bowl bid by telling everyone repeatedly (through their mouthpiece butt boy at the Herald) that they WOULD NOT get a Super Bowl without renovations.

They made their own bed, now we have to sleep in it.

Thanks you greedy pigs.

I doubt very seriously if the conversation was that ambiguous. Jones already has shown he was willing to more or less "Boycott" OTA's. The cat was out of the bag, by just saying he wasn't going to show, then not showing on Monday was a "Committed" to the hold out. Why back down to a "We'll get back to ya, just have your people call our people" once your neck deep in it?
I would imagine that Miami gave Jones' agent more then a "We'll see"... but you don't put that out there. Had Miami come off soft they set a bad standard, had Jones not heard what he wanted to hear after taking it to the edge... he comes off a Pooosy...
Jones needs to play well in pre-season. He does that... he shows in the 4 games before the start of season that he is not a "One and Done".. He'll get paid.
I still think Miami needs to give Starks a 3 year deal. Get that franchise tag money off the books while they still can. I'm not sure when it too late, but it may be the same time that Miami get's back the Burnett, Dansby cash?

YG....NO TOPIC IS TABOO.....READ THE BLOG RULES!!!!!!!!

12-4

I agree, YG is an Idiot and I also agree on the message @ 1:35.

maybe we should go back to your diatribe about shitting your pants like you discussed for hours on Friday. Like you shitting your pants is a surprise to anyone who spent more than 5 minutes on this blog.

@1:34. I'd expect Jones to get his deal when the money becomes available again. I would think he will get signed for at least 3 years.

Starks I'm not sure about. Hes a good player, but getting up there. Don't know if the Dolphins will pay him a multi year deal or not. He could get tagged again.

When players get good and deserve a raise the cheap fish get rid of them.

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | May 21, 2013 at 01:39 PM

Yeah, you only agree no topic is taboo only when it supports your homofied bulls'hit. LOL....

YG, When was thelast time you worked?

I'm saying let's talk about you shitting your pants again.

YG, you want to point fingers, how many times have you come on here busting up on Dan Marino??

Anyway, I call it like I see it. For Elway, numerous Super Bowl appearnances and two championships including going out on top. I'd love for Tannehill to do the same thing 15 years from now.

YG, remember, Canada is always on top

YG IS CANADIAN BACON!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | May 21, 2013 at 02:12 PM

YOU WOULD BE SPEAKING GERMAN OR JAPANESE RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK, IF NOT FOR THE U.S.(US). WHO THE HELL FEARS CANADA?

YOUR COUNTRY IS NO MORE GREAT THAN ZIMBABWE. LOL....

To clarify what I see as a discrepancy...I was the one talking about squishy sharting. I have proof that it increases 40 times...by atleast a tenth of a sec.

I don't know what the problem is with the Stadium. People go to the SB to have fun for 2 weeks before the event and very few care about the Game itself. Same as Louisville and the Kentucky Derby.


YG, remember, Canada is always on top

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | May 21, 2013 at 02:16 PM


S'HIT'S ALWAYS ABOVE GROUND, BUT THAT DOESNT MAKE IT GREAT.

WE COULD COME UP THERE AN B'ITCH SLAP YOU CANADIAN HOMOS AT ANYTIME WE WISH, AND MKE YOU LIKE IT TOO. lol....

YG4L/YG/DYING BREAD/LOL AND A THOUSAND OTHER NAMES AGIAN RESORTS TO NAME CALING LIKE A UNEDUCATED CREATIN.
YG, HAVE HAE DIGNITY AND DONT POST NAGATIVE STUFF..

THE CORN BEEF COACH

THE GARAGE MACHANIC

THE SHOULDER 1ST PICK.

oscar, the stadium is ancient and wreaks of urine. The food boths have been cited by the Board of Health a zillion times for roaches.

But YG is the one who carries extra trousers for instances when he shits himself.

YG, you moron, the Japanese attacked the US, not Canada. And the Germans didn't attack Canada at all. We actually were at the forefront in North America to lend aid to stop the Nazis. If it wasn't for the Japanese getting the Americans directly involved, the USA wouldn't have done anything to get involved ins topping that crime against humanities. maybe you should re-take your grade 8 history ...

OHHHHHHHHHH............................

I NEVER SUSPECTED ALOCO WAS MARK IN TORONTO TOO!

THIS IS REALLY GETTING INTERESTING. ROTFLMAO............

Talking crap on Canada is not needed...canada rocks...no point denying it for whatever reason.

Well, I want that SB here, with Us in it preferably.

Dashi your baketball knowledge is putrid at best, there motivated and simply better than every other team in the NBA. Heat in 5!

1812, US tried to invade Canada ... Canada burned down the White House. Americans went home. True story.

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | May 21, 2013 at 02:22 PM


THE JAPANESE KNEW THEY COULDNT TOUCH N. AMERICA UNLESS THEY CAME THROUGH US FIRST.

FURTHERMORE, THERE'S NOTHING IN CANADA WORTH TAKING. NOT EVEN GHASTLY LOOKING WOMEN. LOL....

We should sell Canada and pay off our deficit


SURE.......................... AND CANADA ISNT THE S'HIT STOOL OF NORTH AMERICA. ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Yesterday's Gone 4Ever! | May 21, 2013 at 02:14 PM


I dont ever want to admit when YG is right(And he's not here) But I alwys thought of Canada as the arm-pit ofthe America's..(Again Mark, No offense)LOL
