Dion Jordan confident he’ll sign contract soon

AP

One of the few draft picks with anything significant to be discussed said he’s confident he’ll get his contract signed in time.

Third-overall pick Dion Jordan said he expected to be signed by the time the Dolphins report to training camp Saturday, though he’s negotiating with one of the few teams still haggling over offset language.

“It’s not finalized yet, but I’ll be there,” Jordan said of his contract and camp, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald.

The last two Dolphins first-rounders have held out, but Jordan sounded confident he would not extend the streak, leaving little time for one side or the other to blink.

  1. Is he stuck on the freeway!? Just drive in, sign the deal, and be done.

    They should change the rookie wage scale again, if picked at: #, you get X, and you only get X if you actually fulfill your contract!

    Simple. Sick of athletes thinking running and jumping well means you should be given a fortune before you even take the field.

  2. “The last two Dolphins first-rounders have held out, but Jordan sounded confident he would not extend the streak, leaving little time for one side or the other to blink.”

    Didn’t Dion Jordan just blink? If he’s going to be there tomorrow, it surely isn’t because he believes the Fins are going to cave.

    I know you guys try to write pithy little summations or add some unique writing to a story that you are “aggregating”, but sometimes trying to be clever is just plain stupid.

  3. The only thing worse than the overpaid entertainer is the significantly lower earning regular person(s) that defend them. As if Dion Jordan is personally going to track down anyone who thumbs down a comment calling him out and give them a percentage.

    This country has a real problem with the have nots kissing the butt of the haves just to be taken advantage of some more.

  4. In response to Bender , This country has a problem with the have nots not doing enough or making a sufficient effort to become “Haves” , and instead relying on elected officials to bail them out for not ever amounting to anything. I’ve gotta go now , from my first job , to the part time one I work on the side. The only one who has the power to ensure that I don’t become a “have not” is myself. Just sayin’.

  5. I don’t know why the Dolphins think they can put offset language in his contract when none of the top 15 picks have it. Coach Philbin should tell Ireland to just sign him so he doesn’t miss any camp!

  6. Jacksonville fans should take a look at their own crappy team before commenting here. Their QB sucks and is only beat in that category by Sanchez,
