Jones makes plea to New England with quickly-deleted Instagram post

The U.S. international midfielder is without a club and may have further alienated himself from his most recent team with a post on Instagram.

Jermaine Jones continued his public contract feud with the New England Revolution on Friday, putting up then quickly deleting a post on Instagram about his value to the team. 

Jones, 34, is out of contract after a season-and-a-half with the Revs, and faces a six-game suspension for making contact with referee Mark Geiger in last year's playoffs. 

In December, Jones took to Twitter to complain about New England's initial contract offer. Jones made $2.8 million in base salary and $3 million in guaranteed compensation in 2015.

On Friday, the U.S. national team midfielder again used social media to state his case, before deleting the post within 30 minutes. 

New England appears likely to move on from Jones, having signed defensive midfielder Xavier Kouassi as a designated player from FC Sion. After the Ivorian tore his ACL earlier this week, the Revs traded for Vancouver's Gershon Koffie on Thursday.
