(7/3/2014) Dolphins second-year defensive end Dion Jordan has been suspended four games without pay for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, the team announced Thursday.

Dolphins working on fundamentals with Dion Jordan


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

“Growth and development are two words I think of when I think of with this particular player," Philbin told the Miami Herald. "He’s been here two weeks, off to a good start. We’ve got to get him up to speed on the fundamentals at his position, which were new last season for him."


Dolphins GM talks up Dion Jordan


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey was upbeat about the prospects of pass rusher Dion Jordan with the team this year. Hickey was asked about him after Jordan's name came up in a report in Philadelphia that suggested the Eagles wanted to trade for him. 

"He's a very talented player and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey told 560 WQAM. "Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump. We're excited about Dion going forward and having a great offseason and looking for big things from him."


Report: Eagles made an offer for Dolphins' Dion Jordan


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014)
The Dolphins drafted Oregon pass rusher Dion Jordan last April to be an asset on their defense. He didn't really deliver as a rookie as a shoulder injury preceded a season in which he had just two sacks and 26 total tackles. 
The Eagles, led by former Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly, might have noticed. A "respected NFL source" told the Pottstown Mercury that the Eagles offered pass rusher Brandon Graham and a second-round pick to the Dolphins for Jordan roughly two months ago. The Dolphins seemingly declined. The paper suggests the Eagles might give their first-round pick this year for him.

Jordan entered last season following shoulder surgery. He finished with 26 tackles and two sacks.
