Reshad Jones will be back in the lineup on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers and will be thrown right into the fire. Nonetheless, he is ready for the challenge and spoke about the various problems the Packers’ offense presents on every play.
“They do a little bit. They mix it up. He (Aaron Rodgers) gets the ball out of his hands quick and they do a great job I guess having two plays off of one play, extending the play. Like I said, Aaron Rodgers is one of the best at keeping the play alive and finding his targets down field. I think he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the game right now.”
When asked whether or not the Dolphins were specifically planning for Rodgers, he said that they have a good plan in place.
“I believe so. I think we have a good game plan. It’s going to be a tough challenge for us. We are going to have to go out and execute against a good offense, power offense like these guys. It’s tough. He’s good at it. We’re just going to have to cover longer. We know on the back end that we are going to have to stay in coverage a little longer, and hopefully our guys up front get to him.”
Of course, with Jones not allowed to be with the team for the first four weeks of the season, he can’t wait to get back on the field on Sunday and hit somebody.
“It feels great just to be back here running around with my guys, my teammates. It feels good. I’m excited. I just want to go out. Whatever it takes to help this team win, I’m willing to do that.”
