Dolphins awarded Chris Jones off waivers
The Miami Dolphins were awarded defensive tackle Chris Jones off waivers from the New England Patriots. Jones was waived by the Patriots after spending three seasons with the organization. He played in 28 games and made 23 starts during the 2013-14 seasons, totaling 79 tackles (40 solo), nine sacks, 16 quarterback hits and 12 tackles for loss. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to the 2015 season and missed the entire year. Jones originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round selection (198th overall) by the Houston Texans in the 2013 NFL draft. He spent time with the Texans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but did not appear in any contests before New England claimed him off waivers on Sept. 11, 2013. Jones was a first-team All-American and the Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year during his senior season at Bowling Green.
