Dolphins' Dion Jordan Suspended for 2015 Season
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that Dolphins DE Dion Jordan will be suspended for the entirety of the 2015 season as a part of the NFL's Substance Abuse Policy.
Jordan did not fail a test, but instead one of his test samples was diluted, which counts the same as testing positive for a banned substance. In 2014, Jordan missed 6 total games due to the Substance Abuse Policy, and this instance counts as his third strike in the program.
The former #3 overall pick in 2013, the Dolphins never got exactly what they expected from Jordan, even shifting him from linebacker to defensive end. With only 3 sacks and 39 tackles in his 26 games, the Dolphins now may look to the first round of the draft to replace Jordan at defensive end.
Schefter went on to report that the Dolphins were nearing a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, reuniting Jordan with his college coach Chip Kelly. Trade talks regarding Jordan have obviously ceased.
