Dolphin completes training related to Sam tweet

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - Dolphins safety Don Jones has completed educational training arranged by the team after he sent a negative tweet about Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL draft.

Shortly after the St. Louis Rams drafted Sam, Jones tweeted "OMG" and "Horrible." Jones subsequently apologized for his comments and described them as inappropriate.

The Dolphins reacted quickly to Jones' comments in the wake of their bullying scandal last year, which embarrassed the NFL and prompted a nationwide debate about workplace harassment. Jones was fined an undisclosed amount and excused from all team activities until he completed the training.
