4/18/2007 - NFL Donnie Jones Miami Dolphins + more

DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins have decided not to match
the offer sheet punter Donnie Jones signed with the St. Louis Rams
last week, instead choosing to accept another draft pick as
compensation.

Miami gets the Rams' seventh-round choice, the 225th overall
selection. The Dolphins now have 10 picks in the April 28-29 draft,
including four of the first 71.

"Having 10 picks not only will allow us to add youth to our
football team, but it also will give us a great deal of flexibility
over the course of the draft," Dolphins general manager Randy
Mueller said.
