Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones plans to sit out this week's mandatory minicamp as he continues to restructure his contract for a long-term deal, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Jones would be fined for the time that he misses, which could total $76,000 for three days.

Jones is slated to earn about $14 million over the next two seasons, including $7.1 million in 2017. 

Last season, he declared himself “the best safety in the league.”

He finished last season with a team-leading 135 tackles and 5 interceptions for Miami. He made his first Pro Bowl roster as a replacement player.
