The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson believes DE Derrick Shelby should see more snaps while DE Dion Jordan is suspended.

Jackson said Shelby is a favorite of coach Joe Philbin and thinks he will be first in line to fill Jordan's role in the defense. Shelby actually played more snaps than Jordan last season -- 446 to 339 -- and was arguably the better player. Shelby recorded 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2013.
