Jason Jones Visited Dolphins

The Dolphins are continuing their pursuit of defensive line help, and they’re reportedly eyeing one of the more versatile options on the market. According to Zac Jackson of ProFootballTalk.com, defensive end Jason Jones visited with the organization yesterday. This would be the 29-year-old’s second meeting with the team, as Jones also visited Miami in early March.

Jason JonesThe former second-rounder spent the past three seasons with the Lions, where he started each of his 34 games. Ignoring an injury-riddle 2013 campaign, Jones totaled 53 tackles, 9.5 sacks, four passes defended, and three forced fumbles through his two healthy seasons. Pro Football Focus was generally happy with his 2015 performance, ranking him 43rd among the league’s edge defenders. The Eastern Michigan product also played for the Seahawks and Titans.

As our own Luke Adams previously noted, Jones would provide a burst of youth to an aging Dolphins defensive line. The unit is currently anchored by Mario Williams (31) and Cameron Wake (34).

Since his initial trip to Miami, Jones also met with the Steelers and Cowboys.
