Reshad Jones was back at work Tuesday. Defensive tackle Randy Starks was still nowhere to be seen.

A day after sitting out the team’s first Organized Team Activities in protest of his contract, Jones was back in his familiar spot Tuesday: with the Miami Dolphins’ first-team defense.

Jones, a safety in the final year of his rookie deal, declined to talk about his contract situation Tuesday, saying that he missed Monday’s session for “personal reasons.”

Starks, meanwhile, has boycotted the team’s voluntary sessions this spring to show his displeasure with the franchise-tag designation. Starks, who wants a multi-year deal, will participate in the mandatory mini-camp in June.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin declined to speak about any player who wasn’t on the field Tuesday.

Jones, a fourth-year pro who’s the lowest-paid member of the Dolphins’ starting secondary, said he plans to participate in the rest of the spring’s voluntary sessions.
