Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones has received a $60 million, five-year contract extension.

The deal confirmed Thursday includes $35 million guaranteed and a base salary of $7 million this year. Jones was heading into the final season of a $28 million, four-year contract.

He suffered a season-ending rotator cuff injury last year and played in only six games. He held out briefly during Miami’s 2016 offseason program seeking a new contract.

DOLPHINS, JAGUARS TRADES OFFICIAL

The Jacksonville Jaguars and Dolphins formally announced two trades that happened last month.

The Jaguars traded their 2018 seventh-round pick to Miami in exchange for two-time Pro Bowler and 10th-year left tackle Branden Albert. The Dolphins traded their 2017 seventh-round pick to Jacksonville in Jacksonville for oft-injured tight end Julius Thomas.

Albert has started 118 of 120 career games since originally being selected by Kansas City with the 15th overall pick in the 2008 draft.

Thomas was acquired by Jacksonville from Denver as an unrestricted free agent in 2015. He totaled 76 receptions for 736 yards and nine touchdowns in 21 games during his two seasons with the Jaguars. In Thomas’ previous two seasons (2013-14) with Denver, he caught 108 passes for 1,277 yards and 24 scores. He was twice named to the Pro Bowl.
