Dolphins LB Koa Misi, DE Dion Jordan staying at positions
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Dolphins Inside linebacker Koa Misi and defensive end Dion Jordan will remain at their respective positions for the time being, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Head coach Joe Philbin talked about Misi's ankle injury and how it affected his play last season. But the coach also likes what that have in Misi.
"We like the way he plays defensive football. We think he plays fast, physical and tough," Philbin said of Misi.
Jordan, the team's first overall draft choice in 2013, will stay at defensive end for now, as the team still believes he can get after the passer from the position.
"We want to get his training there [on the line] to improve so he can continually develop his pass rushing ability. If we play him at linebacker, move him there full time when is he going to practice rushing the passer?" Philbin reasoned. "That doesn't mean he'll never cover a tight end again. But that's kind of where we are right now."
