Reshad Jones, after a breakout 2012 season, seemed to be in line for a pay raise, either at some point during this season or when he was set to enter free agency at season’s end.
The Dolphins were able to avoid what could have potentially been a late-season distraction, though, reportedly inking Jones to a new multi-year extension.
According to Pro Football Talk, the fourth-year safety has agreed to a four-year extension.
