Jones may be headed to the Rams
The offer sheet is scheduled to be signed Friday, accordinng to agent Drew Rosenhaus, meaning the Dolphins have seven days to match the offer or lose their punter of the last two seasons. Jones will not participate in Miami's mini-camp that opens Friday.
"I can't speak for them so I don't know what they're going to do," Rosenhaus said of the Dolphins choice of matching the offer or losing Jones. "But I don't think they'll match based on the fact we've had no significant contract talks with them over the last couple of weeks."
Rosenhaus said the offer sheet does not include any type of poison pill. It does pay Jones a $1.175 million signing bonus with base salaries of $510,000 in 2007, $700,000 in 2008, $1 million in 2009 $1.1 million in 2010 and $1.1 million in 2011.
Rosenhaus, who also represents restricted free agent Yeremiah Bell, said the safety has signed an injury waiver and will participate in Miami's three-day camp.
