MIAMI (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says defensive end Jason Jones is in the final stages of negotiations with the Miami Dolphins on a deal.

The person confirmed the contract talks to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the Dolphins had not commented. A deal is expected Monday.

Jones would provide depth behind another Miami newcomer, Mario Williams, and Cameron Wake, who is coming off Achilles tendon surgery.
