DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones made a point that he wants a new contract by skipping all voluntary organized team activities. However, will Jones continue to make his point next week during mandatory minicamp?

The Dolphins were not sure of Jones' plans as voluntary practices wrapped up on Thursday.

"I haven't [received an indication],” coach Adam Gase said. "I don't know. You'd have to ask him.”

Jones is coming off a career year in 2015 and led the Dolphins in tackles (135) and interceptions (five). He made his first Pro Bowl and is due to make $7.25 million this season. The Dolphins can begin fining Jones next week: he could owe approximately $76,000 if he misses all three days of minicamp.

So far this offseason the Dolphins have gone with Michael Thomas and Isa Abdul-Quddus as their starting safeties.

"It doesn't hold us back," defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said. "Obviously, again, that's a contract matter. That's not my area. But it won't hold us back, because when guys aren't here, I treat them as they're injured for the week. I don't even think about it, really. I move on with guys who're here."
