Reshad Jones is back at Miami Dolphins camp today.
A source close to the player tells me the safety who has been holding out of all offseason work because he is unhappy with his current contract and wants a pay raise and more guaranteed money for his security returned to the team for the second of a three-day mandatory minicamp.
The Monday Morning Quarterback was the first to report this.
The source declined to say if that meant a breakthrough in the talks between the player, his representative Joel Segal, and the Dolphins -- including owner Stephen Ross. Or perhaps Jones simply caved after being fined for missing the first day of the mandatory camp.
My sense is something is getting done -- if not now, eventually.
When the owner is talking directly to the player, that is a radical step. So expect radical things such as this sudden change to occur.
It would not surprise if Jones came back to camp as a show of good faith and now expects (hopes) the Dolphins to show some good faith (as in negotiate a new deal) in return.
Update: I do know this: No new contract is getting done today.
