Reshad Jones is not happy with his contract.

And he might not practice this offseason until he gets a new one.

Jones was missing from the first day of voluntary veterans minicamp Tuesday. He is not pleased with his compensation, a four-year, $28 million contract he signed in 2014, multiple sources tell the Miami Herald.

Defensive linemen Ndamukong Suh and Mario Williams also were not present Tuesday, but neither was a huge surprise.

Jones skipping the first practice, voluntary or not, in Adam Gase’s tenure was, however.

Jones is already the league’s highest-paid strong safety in football, but coming off his first Pro Bowl invitation, he believes he is underpaid.

Jones is owed roughly $7 million in base salary each of the next two seasons. He will not be fined for missing voluntary workouts, but would be subjected to a fine if he misses a mandatory camp.
