While playoff hopes for the Miami Dolphins are almost non-existent with two weeks left in the 2017 regular season, one of the top defensive players for the Fins knows he will play in a postseason game this season.
Safety Reshad Jones was named as the team’s lone representative for the annual Pro Bowl game, scheduled for January 28th at 3 p.m. inside Orlando’s Camping World Stadium. It’s the second selection for Jones, who was named to the AFC’s team during the 2015 season as well.
Jones is second on the team with 99 tackles to go along with two interceptions and half a sack as the Dolphins, who sit at 6-8 entering this weekend’s game, need to win their final two games to avoid a losing season.
The selection marks the fewest number of Dolphins picked for the NFL’s annual all-star game since the 2007 season – when future Hall of Famer Jason Taylor was picked, but did not play in the game.
Other Dolphins can be picked for the Pro Bowl in the coming weeks as injury replacements or to replaced players that are on the rosters for both teams that will play in Super Bowl 52, which is played the following Sunday in Minneapolis, MN.
