Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones signed a $29.3 million, four-year contract that includes $15 million guaranteed.

Jones, a fifth-round draft choice by Miami in 2010, has started 30 games in his career, including every game in last year. Last year he led the team with four interceptions and ranked fourth in tackles with 95, both career highs.

''I think I demonstrated last year I'm one of the elite safeties in the game,'' Jones said Tuesday after the Dolphins announced the extension.

''This shows how much these guys trust me as a player and a person,'' Jones said. ''This takes the pressure off. I know where my home is the next couple of years.''

The deal includes a $5 million signing bonus.
