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.

NO THANKS, BUT I'LL DANCE WITH YOUR MOTER, SHE HAS 2 WOODEN LEGS AND VELCRO WIG TOP TO HIDE HER MALE PATTERN BALDNESS.

YG... typical American imbecile, ranting that he is better because his country has a bigger population and bigger army. Newsflash: Canada has no real enemies because we are not arrogant A***S and no one hates us. I realize it's a difficult concept for you to understand. Your comments are all very well thought out BTW.

MARK IN TORONTO,

WHAT I MEANS IS THAT YOUR MOTHER HAS A DONALD TRUMP COMB OVER TOUPEE. SORRY, I HAD TO CONFESS IT IN PUBLIC.

I don't remember seeing any Canadians in Cuba while I was there. Most Tourists were Americans. Neither here in Miami.

CHANGE YOUR NAME TO FRANK NOW? LOL...

As for Who gets the SuperBowl my thinking is for two weeks the circus go's on, San Fran being one of those, My thinking is would you depend on a Earth-quick area for two weeks or maybe suffer form a little rain..
And that goes for the weeks or months leading up to the game itsef, All anyone has to do is look at the 89 world series*As vs Giants) to see what could happen..
Just saying, the afterall the safer picks are Houston or Miami.

Hahha, a senior citizen aged man using mother jokes. Wow, this keeps getting better ...

There ARE a lot of Canadian Tourists in Dominican Republic.

What's up with the Canada bashing today? For you ignorant dolts, Canada played a major role in WW2 and has been our ally basically forever. And the maple syrup is really good.
The lack of education for alot of the regular posters here (you know who you are) is astounding, both in history and football.

OSCAR,

YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY A CANADIAN TOURIST. THEY COME DISGUISED AS CANADIANS.

YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW THAT CANADA WAS PART OF N. AMERICA UNTIL YOU PICK UP A MAP. THEY HIDE VERY WELL DISGUISED AS CANADA.

NO ONE KNOWS THEY'RE REALLY THERE. LOL...

oscar, when were you in Cuba? The 1950s??

Almost all the Cuban tourists are from Canada and Europe. Won't find many Americans there now or any that will admit to it anyway for fear of their own safety.

HI ALOCO! LOL...

OSCAR,
YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY A CANADIAN TOURIST. THEY COME DISGUISED AS CANADIANS.

Hahaha, this guy's genius is amazing ....

- They can't afford it, Oscar. - What? - Cuba before Castro and Miami. - Who? - The Canadians, Oscar, the Canadians.

EVEN ENGLAND DOESNT PUBLICALLY BRAG OF THEIR AFFILIATION WITH CANADA. NEITHER DO THE FRENCH! LOL...

uhhhh...what?

CANADA IS LIKE THE ORPHAN CHILD THAT AT TIMES GETS SPOKEN OF, BUT, KNOWONE WILL OFFICIALLY ADOPT.

NEITHER FRANCE NOR ENGLAND SEE CANADIANS AS "EQUALS". cANADIANS ARE THE RED HEADED B'ASTARD STEP CHILDREN OF THE WORLD. LOL...

Canada is like that ugly red headed child of yours you wish he wasnt yours but he is so you lear to love em.

YG, PLEASE HAVE HONOR AND QUIT DRUNKING IN THE MORNING.
MARKHAVE HONOR AND DONT MAKE FUN OF THE UNEMPLOYED.

CORN BEEF

MACHANIC

SHOULHDER

I thought the Red-Headed Bastids came from Scottland?

NATO HAS TO LOAN THE CANADIANS WEAPONS TO HAVE THEM BE A PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL PEACE FORCE.

IF THE U.S. ATTACKED CANADA, THEY WOULD FALL IN 3 DAYS. LOL...

We have always travelled First Class, Canadians, you know?

YG, there is a sporting event called the Commonwealth Games where Canada, Australia, and a number of former British colonies get together and compete athletically under the banner of being once part of the British Empire.

Nice try though...

YG, getting ripped in at least five, six different directions and yet it's only me ... haha ...

YG, WHEN DID YOU START DRUNKING TODAY?

CORN BEEF

MACHANIC

SHOULDER

CANADA IS SUCH A GREAT HOCKEY TEAM SIMPLY BECAUSE THOSE BARBARIANS TO THE NORTH ARE FAR MORE COMFORTABLE FIGHTING WITH STICKS. LOL...

Aloco,

For one to start drinking, they have to stop first...

Canadian citizens own more guns per capaita than US citizens and we kill each other at probably 500x the rate...
So, what's our problem?

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | May 21, 2013 at 02:46 PM


YEAH, AND AUSTRALIA IS A FAR MORE DESIRABLE WORLD WIDE TOURIST DESTINATION THAN CRAPPY CANADA.

ONLY REASON THE REST OF THE WORLD VISITS CANADA IS BECAUSE OF THE GREAT MONETARY CONVERSION RATE.

YEAH, THE DOLLAR IS SUPPOSED TO BE SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN YOUR MONEY. BUT, STILL, WORLD TOURIST WOULD RATHER HAVE LESS MONEY TO SEE THE U.S. THAN MORE MONEY TO SEE CANADA! LOL...

Slow blog day I guess....

let's do some country Bashing to get the HITS up...eh...wink...wink....

WHats next Armando....straight up racial slurs....

O wait....people already do that on here...

Americans are getting quite good at hockey. Actually the prjected first pick in this year's draft is an American. Seth Jones ... he's the son of long time former NBA player Popeye Jones. His son fell in love with the game while he played for our "basketball team" the Toronto Raptors.

I think it's a pretty cool story of our culture's inter-twining with one another.

Jack!, cause were all cowboys. Hamilton and Burr duel it out because they were rivals, its the American way

Thinking about that, I recall a US General saying on a hypothetical invasion of Cuba and the possibilities of triumph, If they don't oppose us it will take 3 days, If they oppose us it will take 3 hours.

Canada: Niagara Falls, Montreal, Toronto, CFL, hockey - plenty of tourists attractions but the weather is the turn off, hence why I'll never go there.

Actually the USA is a much better value dollar wise than Canada. A lot of our produts and services are priced as if the Canadian dollar is still $0.67 to an American $1. So given the increase in purchase power, I purchase almost everything that isn't consumable from across the border. Great values even with the duty charges.

YG, you should know that the Canadian dollar has been on par or close to it since about 1997. Thanks for keeping up.

Kris, anything for a blog hit, I guess.

Wow Miami, By-Passed twice..
Not surprised though, After Idiot Ross and Dee whining like lil girls dosnt surprise me.

Canadiens do try to shoot each other, but when the next closest person is 5 miles away, the bullet ends up in a tree.

I think the world should ban and destroy all guns. You want to kill something for whatever reason?..
be a man...
use your hands...(spears, knives, bow and arrows...etc)
Guns are for poooooosies

There is no questioning the influence, CubaUSACanada.

JACK, CANADIANS ONLY USE THEIR GUNS TO SHOOT THE HUMONGOUS RAT POPULATION.
WHEN IN FIGHTS WITH OTHER CANADIAN CITIZENS, THEY STILL FACE SLAP EACHOTHER WITH COTTON GLOVES.

solid

ross aint gonna get the sb.
lol

On a side note, good to see both Grimes and Marshall participating in OTAs. If both stay healthy we have a good chance to stop Brady and Co.

cheap ross.
lol

YG, You need to take your medication. Swallow 2 of these and call me in the morning.

Stick to the SUBJECT.

Mr. Salguero can't save you every time.

Doesn't matter how well you polish his Little Red Corvette.

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.

What color is the sky in YOUR world..?

Do you remember the Chicago -vs- Indy Superbowl at Sun Life Stadium? ...It was the Superbowl that the fans needed a canoe to row to the restroom and take a leak?... Not a week after the game the NFL went on public record saying that "Miami needed to do ...>significant upgrades<... to the facility to assure future Superbowl consideration.
Miami didn't say it, it wasn't Ross or Huizenga and it wasn't "the man in the moon." It was Roger Goodell and the Superbowl planning comity. All the Dolphins have done is convey the urgency of these two upcoming Bids... The 50th Superbowl, which given the history that Miami and the Superbowl have had, and the familiarity and comfort by which South Florida has handling these event would have EASILY been ours. And then the left overs, SB 51 which will undoubtedly be a dud in comparison to the half century bid.
Miami did everything they could... and do to ignorance and ineptitude at high levels of Florida Government, it wasn't enough.

South Florida would have been recovered this investment, an investment payed by a 1 Cent Bed tax in hotels, within 10 years. And, since Ross agreed to repay the entire amount invested by the people within 30 years. And would offer to sign a "30 year no move lease" Miami and South Florida in General would have made money on both ends and kept they're team without question or concern.
The 50th Superbowl will introduce $160 to $200 Million into the economy of the bid winner within ONE WEEK the Game and festivities last. That would have nearly covered the initial investment. Add another SB in 8 years, and Miami would have ANOTHER $150 to &170 Million which would have cleared the debt and MADE positive cash flow. Then, add to the NFL income the NCAA events Miami would have certainly drawn, a MLS club and several MLS events... It is possible Miami COULD HAVE seen nearly a Half Billion Dollars over 10 years. 12 years at the most.

No welfare for Billionaires... PfffffT.....

It wasn't about "Money to Steven Ross"... he has his money. The league would have had his head had he paid for all the reparations. Had Ross paid for it himself, the NFL would have lost leverage in a BUNCH of places, and that just won't be happening... The NFL is first and foremost, A Business, never forget that.

All we did by not backing Steven Ross was scoff at a penny to lose an $100 dollar bill.... Stupid, stupid people... educated beyond they're own competence... and taught to trust a Government before it trusted itself.

You signed a contract, now quit whining. Be a team player until your contract is expired or extended. You have a whole year left. That being said, these are voluntary OTA's. But, don't expect any special treatment or a higher payoff, if you aren't going to show up for OTA's.

Omg
