Dolphins, Jones agree on $30 million extension

The SportsXchange

The Miami Dolphins and safety Reshad Jones reached agreement on a four-year contract extension worth $30 million, reported Monday.

It represents a sizable raise for Jones, who becomes one of the NFL's highest paid safeties. He was due to earn $1.323 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Jones skipped the first day of organized team activities in May in an attempt to spur negotiations on a long-term extension.

Last season, Jones led the team in interceptions with four and was fourth in tackles.

He started all 16 games last season, after starting 12 of the 15 games in which he played in 2011.
