Draft Scout Dion Jordan News
09/20/14 - DE Dion Jordan was relieved of one suspension and then hit with another on Friday.
After a four-game suspension was lifted for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Jordan was slapped with a four-game banishment for substance abuse.
That means Jordan, the No. 3 pick of the 2013 draft, will sit out a total of six games this season because of suspensions.
He'll be eligible to rejoin the team on Oct. 20. Previously, he would have been able to return Sept. 29.
"I am currently undergoing treatment to address my situation," Jordan said in a statement. "I am working hard to become a better man and to make better choices in the future. I am especially looking forward to returning to the team. I also want to thank my family, coach (Joe) Philbin and the Miami Dolphins organization for their support."
Jordan had 26 tackles and two sacks last season during a disappointing rookie year. He added 15 pounds of muscle during the offseason and seemed on track to be an impact player until he was suspended for the first four games of the regular season. Now comes the new suspension.
Philbin said the team is "disappointed" in Jordan's new suspension.
"We were informed that Dion's suspension for performance-enhancing drugs was lifted," Philbin said in a statement, "however, we also learned that he has been suspended four games for violating the Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances.
"While we were disappointed to learn of this result, we support Dion for proactively taking steps to voluntarily seek treatment to better himself. We will continue to support and work with him as he takes advantage of all available resources during this time."
08/24/14 - DE Dion Jordan had one tackle Saturday and posted his third unimpressive preseason effort. Jordan, the No. 3 pick of the 2013 draft, will serve a four-game suspension when the regular season starts.
08/14/14 - DE Dion Jordan, who played about 30 snaps against Atlanta, will likely play that many or more Saturday at Tampa Bay. Jordan will serve a four-game suspension when the season begins so coaches are trying to get him as much time as possible in preseason.
"Personally, my mindset is just come out here every day, whether I'm on the field or I'm in the meeting rooms or when I'm away the facility, I'm going to make sure I'm ready to play ball on a daily basis," he said. "That's what it all comes down to."
08/11/14 - DE Dion Jordan only had one tackle in Friday's preseason opener at Atlanta. That's a huge disappointment because he played in the second and third quarters mostly against second- and third-team players.
08/05/14 - DE Dion Jordan, who will miss the first four games of the regular season due to a NFL-mandated suspension, had two sacks in Saturday's scrimmage and continues to play well in training camp. Most likely Jordan will get an extended look Friday at Atlanta, espceially because DE Olivier Vernon (back) might not play.
