Former UGA and current Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones has ended his holdout.
Jones reported to the Dolphins’ minicamp Wednesday, according to a report from MMQB.com’s Albert Breer, after missing the mandatory first minicamp session Tuesday and all of the team’s voluntary offseason workouts. The former Bulldogs star faced a $26,000 fine for missing the Tuesday session and could have seen that total balloon to $76,000 if he missed the entire minicamp.
Jones was taken by the Dolphins in the fifth-round of the 2010 NFL Draft after three seasons (2007-09) at UGA. The safety racked up 206 tackles and 11 interceptions in 36 games with the Bulldogs.
Since joining the Dolphins, Jones has played in 88 games, totaling 15 interceptions, 494 tackles and 8.5 sacks. He led all NFL safeties in tackles (135) last season to go along with five interceptions and two sacks.
Jones has two years remaining on a contract extension he signed in 2013. He is scheduled to make $7.1 million and $7.2 million in base salary over the next two seasons, but neither of the years is guaranteed.
