Dolphins sign former Saints safety Jones

MIAMI (March 17, 2005) -- The Miami Dolphins signed free agent Tebucky Jones to a two-year contract as the team continues rebuilding at safety.

Jones, who was cut March 15 by New Orleans, started all 16 games at free safety for the Saints last season and led the team with a career-high 110 tackles. He spent two years with the Saints after five years and one Super Bowl win with New England.

Jones will likely move to strong safety to replace former starter Sammy Knight, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs last week.

The Dolphins were without any starting safeties after not re-signing Knight and releasing starting free safety Arturo Freeman and backup Shawn Wooden. Miami previously signed free agent Travares Tillman as the probable starter at free safety.
