Jones has completed educational training arranged by the team after he sent a negative tweet about Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL draft.

Shortly after the St. Louis Rams drafted Sam, Jones tweeted "OMG" and "Horrible." Jones subsequently apologized for his comments and described them as inappropriate. The Dolphins reacted quickly to Jones' comments in the wake of their bullying scandal last year, which embarrassed the NFL and prompted a nationwide debate about workplace harassment. Jones was fined an undisclosed amount and excused from all team activities until he completed the training.

A negative one-word tweet from Dolphins safety Jones about the drafting of Michael Sam has drawn a rebuke from the team.

Shortly after the St. Louis Rams selected Sam in the seventh round Saturday, Jones tweeted, "Horrible." The tweet was taken down a short time later. Sam is the NFL's first openly gay player. After the draft, Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey said he was made aware of Jones' tweet and was disappointed. He said the organization would sit down with Jones and address the matter appropriately.
