Veteran defensive end Jason Jones was one of the more intriguing defensive linemen available in free agency until reportedly agreeing to a deal with the Miami Dolphins on Friday, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Alex Marvez of Fox Sports 1 confirmed Jones is heading to South Beach.
Jones, 29, registered 31 tackles, 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 15 games with the Detroit Lions last season. He's had stints with the Tennessee Titans (2008-11), Seattle Seahawks (2012) and the Lions (2013-15) in his career.
The veteran is a solid, three-down player capable of being utilized as a 4-3 defensive end, 3-4 defensive end or potentially even a 3-4 outside linebacker. While he isn't an elite pass-rusher, he's sturdy against the run and has been durable later in his career, playing 31 of 32 games the past two seasons.
Jones is an experienced player and was a solid defensive end for the Lions opposite rising star Ezekiel Ansah. He'll be a nice addition at a reasonable price for the Dolphins.
