Draft Scout Dion Jordan News
10/29/14 - DE Dion Jordan said he wasn't worried about getting playing time last week in his season debut. The Dolphins are loaded at DE among starters Cam Wake and Olivier Vernon and reserves Derrick Shelby and rookie Terrence Fede. Jordan finished with two tackles from scrimmage in 30 snaps, and one special teams tackle and said he felt he did "alright."
10/25/14 - DE Dion Jordan had his exemption lifted Saturday (Oct. 25) and now counts against the Dolphins' 53-man roster.
10/22/14 - DE Dion Jordan is back from suspension. But he remains on the reserve/suspended list. The Dolphins have until Monday to make a decision on what to do with the players who was the No. 3 pick in the 2013 draft.
"I feel much better," Jordan said. "It's unfortunate I had to take the time. But it's the most time I had for myself in a really long time.
"I used it wisely as far as making sure I bettered myself. And, secondly, making sure I came back with a good mind, doing whatever I have to do to help this organization just take care of my business."
Perhaps Jordan could be used in a pass rush package as well as playing on special teams this week. But the way the defensive linemen, and especially the defensive ends, have performed it seems more likely Jordan won't be active this week.
10/20/14 - DE Dion Jordan returns from his suspension this week. But there's some question whether he'll get playing time. The defensive end rotation of starters Cam Wake and Olivier Vernon and reserves Derrick Shelby and Terrence Fede seems to be working well.
Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said he'll talk with Jordan, who was suspended for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing drugs, at some point this week.
"Yeah, we'll certainly talk to him and I'll speak with him," he said. "I'm very close with Dion as is our entire staff. We've had some sit down conversations in the past and we'll continue to do that, not just with Dion, but all of the players."
Jordan was struggling to get time from scrimmage during training camp and that might not change in the immediate future.
10/20/14 - DE Dion Jordan was reinstated from the league suspended list Monday (Oct. 20). Jordan received a roster exemption that expires next Monday (Oct. 27).
