Reshad Jones is considered to be the most underrated safety in the NFL. In spite of the fact that he made the 2016 pro bowl only as an alternate and did not play well as a whole (likely because of the defense he played on), Reshad has already achieved certain feats in the league. For instance, during the last season he was one of the few bright spots for the Dolphins. In fact, this past season he set an all time NFL record for a safety with over 125 tackles and at least 5 interceptions, 2 of which were returned for TD's in consecutive weeks. Therefore, he is known as a player who is always around the ball, and has a 'nose for the football.'
Ever since he was young, Jones was a gifted football player. Hence, it is not surprising that already in high school he earned an AAAA All state, and defensive player of the year in his senior year. Thanks to this, he was considered the top safety going into college, and was recruited by his home state Georgia Bulldogs – a team with a rich history of having an excellent defensive talent. There, he started 2 years with 27 starts, posting 206 tackles, 13 batted balls, and 11 interceptions. As a matter of fact, Reshad led his team in interceptions for 2 straight years, and won several awards, including most improved defensive back and 2nd All-SEC team.
Unlike many other players, who wait to finish their college before going into the NFL, Jones decided to declare for the draft in his junior year. His pre-draft stats were measured at 6'1", 214 pounds; he ran a 4.51second 40 yard dash, and he benched 24 reps at 225 pounds. Unfortunately, it was too early, and even with all his talent Reshad dropped all the way to the 5th round of the 2010 NFL draft, which is when the Miami Dolphins selected him.
As he was learning the NFL ropes, Reshad Jones started only 2 games in his rookie year. Nonetheless, by his 2nd year he was a full time starter, and has started every game since 2011, missing only 4 games due to suspension. During the 2012 season (his 3rd season) he showed early glimpses of being an outstanding player, posting almost 100 tackles with 9 passes defensed, and 4 interceptions. Due to the excellent performance, he was rewarded with a $30M contract before the next season, during which he had over 100 tackles.
Prior to the 2014 NFL season, it was announced that Jones had failed a test for performance enhancing drugs, causing him to be suspended for the first 4 games of the year. Jones blamed his former college trainer for giving him a 'supplement' that contained banned ingredients. Yet, he took responsibility for the mistake, and said he would never take anything without 'having it checked' first. After his suspension, Jones came back to have an outstanding season. What's more, the very next year Reshad broke the all time record for tackles combined with interceptions made by a safety.
Speculation on drug use
In no way is there evidence of this, but based on speculation we can take an educated guess. NFL policy is they do not announce what the player was caught using.
The position Jones plays requires a lot of intangibles - you have to be able to read coverages, and react. Although Jones isn't known as a hard hitter like other safeties, he does have a knack to getting to an area fast, and making the tackle; whether it is a running play, or passing play. Hence, in order to have performance advantages, he would likely take something like growth hormone stacked with winstrol. This combination would give his muscles fast reactions and improved recovery.
Steroid Cycle *
The steroid cycle for a player like Reshad Jones would be like this:
- 100mgs ED no ester testosterone
- 50mgs ED winstrol
- 10 Ius/ED HGH
Likely all his PEDs were no ester.
