Dion Jordan hasn’t done much to make the Dolphins want to give him extra chances. But they’re apparently giving him one anyway.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins “will give thought” to keeping Jordan in 2016, but apparently haven’t given thought to trying to recoup signing bonus money from him.
Jordan’s year-long suspension for violating the league’s drug policy because of a diluted test is grounds to forfeit $3.335 million in already paid signing bonus. But the Dolphins “aren’t actively trying to collect signing bonus money from him” according to the report.
Perhaps it’s a sign they think he’s worth something in the future, even though the guy who traded up to draft him third overall in 2013 is gone.
There was some talk about trading him to the Eagles prior to his suspension, but if it’s possible, his value is even lower now, meaning they might be willing to see if he can get himself right and become a productive player on the field again.
