The Dolphins placed CB Byron Jones on the PUP list entering training camp. It's not a big deal as it was expected as he heals. It gives us a chance to gauge our young DBs ... especially Igby who needs to shake the "bust" label. At some point this season we will be without one of our starting dynamic duo, so, it is good to have a backup plan.

The Dolphins placed Byron Jones on the active/physically-unable-to-perform list, the team announced Friday, likely sidelining the veteran cornerback for the start of training camp next week.
Jones, who turns 30 in September, did not participate in organized team activities in the spring after he underwent offseason surgery for his Achilles, which guaranteed his 2022 base salary. The Dolphins later restructured Jones’ deal and reportedly converted $13 million of his base salary into a signing bonus, creating $10 million of cap space in 2022.
The Dolphins can activate Jones from the PUP list at any time but he cannot be added back once he begins practicing.
