Dolphins sidestep questions about Dion Jordan
Dolphins pass-rusher Dion Jordan is skipping the team’s offseason conditioning workouts.
Which is certainly his right, they’re voluntary.
But the tone Dolphins officials took today regarding the 2013 No. 3-overall pick was certainly interesting.
Via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins executive vice president Mike Tannenbaum was asked about Jordan’s missing the start of workouts and replied: “If someone choses not to be here, that’s their decision.”
Later in the press conference, General Manager Dennis Hickey was asked about Jordan’s love for football, before pausing and saying the press conference was about next week’s draft.
They later sidestepped questions as to whether Jordan would be on hand for mandatory minicamps.
Jordan has been a disappointment in every sense of the word for the Dolphins, who gave a first- and a second-round pick to move up to get him. He’s responded with 3.0 sacks in two seasons, and they haven’t been able to really figure out what position he plays, bouncing from defensive end to linebacker.
And judging by their tone, they might be open to the idea of bouncing him elsewhere.
With his Oregon pedigree, the Eagles would land on the list of usual suspects if they tried to trade him, despite the fact he hasn’t torn an ACL lately.
