There is a lot “what-if’s” floating around now that the season is over when it relates to Reshad Jones. What if he had been healthy all year? Would the Dolphins have won, one more game? Would they have faced the Texans instead of the Steelers?
All of that doesn’t matter but what does is the fact that the Dolphins need to address his contract this year. Last season Jones held out of OTA’s, sort of, hoping for a new contract. The Dolphins refused to budge on his current deal because at the time he still had two seasons left on the contract. He now has one.
It would be very hard for the Dolphins to justify negotiating a new deal with Jarvis Landry and not with Reshad Jones unless they have no intention on keeping Jones after next season. Jones is another of Miami’s players who will command a big contract in free agency and he too sends a positive message to the rest of the team regarding the ability and desire to keep top performing players.
