Jermaine Jones has been out-of-contract with the New England Revolution since the team's 2-1 playoff loss back in October. But since all contracts officially end on December 31st, the new year means that Jones is officially not under contract with the Revolution.
To commemorate this, Jones removed the Revs from his Twitter bio earlier today, listing only the United States national team on his profile:

Jones is one of the more active players on social media, taking to Twitter to post his dismay with New England's most recent contract offer and to Instagram after the team's playoff loss to thank the fans for his 18 months with the Revs.
The Revolution were a vastly better team with Jones on the field since his signing in the summer of 2014, though he missed significant time due to injury last year and is facing a six-game suspension to start the 2016 MLS season.
@JCatanese43 @SeanLDonahue This past season, 4-8-1 without JJ, 10-4-7 with JJ, if my math is correct. 9-1-1 in 2014.— Brian O'Connell (@BrianOConnell21) December 19, 2015
Losing Jones could be a big negative even if the Revs find a suitable replacement for the 2016 season. Either way, the Jermaine Jones saga continues and we'll see if this tidbit on social media is foreshadowing of a move out of New England.
