essful surgery to his right shoulder. Jones played through a tear in his labrum throughout the 2018 season and appears to be doing well following the procedure. Jones posted a picture on Instagram after the surgery.A 2010 fifth-round draft choice by the Dolphins Andrew Van Ginkel Jersey nfl draft , Jones has developed into one of the elite safeties in the league. He specializes as a strong safety, especially adept at playing in the box in run support, but has the skill set to be utilized as a free safety as well. Jones, who turns 31 next month, appeared in 14 games for the Dolphins this season, recording 72 tackles with three interceptions including one returned for a touchown and nine passes defensed.Jones has two career Pro Bowl appearances. He is expected to be ready for training camp in July. The veteran was involved in an odd situation with the team this year. In November, as the team played the New York Jets, Jones pulled himself out of the game Daniel Kilgore Jersey , standing on the sideline throughout most of the contest. Then head coach Adam Gase seemed to defuse the situation during the following week, saying there was a communications issue that needed to be solved and that everyone was back on the same page. The Dolphins had rotated Jones out of the lineup multiple times early in the game as rookie Minkah Fitzpatrick and veteran T.J. McDonald also saw playing time in the back of the Dolphins’ defense.Jones is signed with Miami through the 2021 season, and will have a $17.2 million salary cap number in 2019. Since having to fight his way from the CFL to NFL stardom, Cameron Wake is used to being doubted. And being considered too old.Now that the 37-year-old pass-rusher has landed in Tennessee, he’s determined to maintain the productivity he showed for so long with the Dolphins.“I’ve been old since I was 28,” Wake said, via Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website. “Every year I am too old. Anything that’s happened, I’ve been injured Youth Andrew Van Ginkel Jersey , and it’s like “It’s over. He’s done. If I had nickel for every time I’d probably go buy a team.“It is not necessarily proving people wrong. I do what I do for people who believe. I don’t do it for the doubters, I do it for the people who believe in me. . . . I guess that chip has carried me — nobody wanted me back then, and you have to hit the reset button and go back at it and continue to be myself and that’s gotten me where I am. And it’s not going to change either.”Wake joked that his long struggle made it a fit, since the Titans and Dolphins survived a couple of lightning delays to play the longest game in NFL history. But he emphasized he sees the Titans as a fit.“It’s a tough, smart, disciplined team, and I think it fits right in with some of the things I like to think of that I bring to the table,” he said. “It seems like a match made in heaven for me.”As recently as 2017 Josh Sitton Jersey , Wake was a double-digit sack player, and the last of his five Pro Bowls and four All-Pro honors was in 2016. He was more of a situational player last year for the Dolphins, but the Titans think he’s a good fit with a young group of pass-rushers. But being old, as Wake noted, is nothing new for him.
