Dion Jordan's one-year deal with the Seahawks contains no guaranteed money.
The $640,000 deal contains a $25,000 workout bonus on top of a $615,000 salary. It is basically a minimum deal for the former first-round pick, and it will cost Seattle almost nothing to cut him in camp. This is a smart, low-cost move from the Seahawks. Apr 18 - 10:17 AM

Seahawks signed DE Dion Jordan, formerly of the Dolphins.

The No. 3 overall pick in 2013 who the Dolphins traded up to land, Jordan recorded three sacks total in his first two seasons before sitting out the next two years due to suspension and injury. It would be an insult to Aaron Curry to call Jordan a bust at this point, but he is at least landing in a good spot to attempt a career U-turn. Still, he is a long shot to make the final roster.
Apr 11 - 10:35 AM

Dolphins waived/failed physical DE Dion Jordan.

The move saves $3.2 million in cap space. Jordan's departure was widely expected after missing all of last season with a knee injury. He sat out the 2015 season for violating the league's PED policy. Jordan, who turned 27 earlier this month, started just one game during his four-year tenure in Miami. The former third overall pick will go down as one of the bigger draft busts in recent memory.
Mar 31 - 3:50 PM

Dolphins EVP Mike Tannenbaum said drafting Dion Jordan with the No. 3 overall pick is "not a move that’s worked out."

"It’s pretty obvious," Tannenbaum said. "We’ll keep evaluating our roster and make moves when we feel it’s appropriate." It seems to be just a matter of time before Jordan is released. When he is, he will finish his four-year stay in Miami with three sacks to his name.
Mar 27 - 9:05 PM

The Miami Herald reports DE Dion Jordan isn't in Miami's 2017 plans.

It falls in line with previous reports. Jordan has been having off-field issues and isn't close to being in football shape, ballooning to 275-pounds after missing the last two years with injuries/suspensions. Miami can save $3.2 million from releasing Jordan.
Mar 17 - 8:06 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been having "issues" again and won't return to the team in 2017.

Jordan got hurt during his latest suspension, requiring two knee surgeries. He wound up never playing for the Dolphins in 2016. Salguero reports Jordan's latest "issues" will effectively get him released. He'll be a free agent soon.
Jan 8 - 9:50 PM

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph expects Dion Jordan to return next season.

"He's a big body who can help us in the future," Joseph said. "But he's lacking health. We didn't see the kid healthy enough to play." Coach Adam Gase has been noncommittal on Jordan's status for next year. Jordan hasn’t appeared in a game since 2014 after multiple suspensions and duel knee surgeries. He’s going to need to take a pay cut from his $3.2 million salary to avoid offseason release.

The Dolphins will not activate DE Dion Jordan (knee) from the reserve/NFI list, ending his season.

So continues Jordan's baffling NFL career. The Dolphins might decide to finally wash their hands of the monumental 2013 draft bust this offseason.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 04:51:00 PM

The Dolphins have until Tuesday at 4 PM ET to activate DE Dion Jordan (knee) from the NFI list.

He's at the end of his three-week window for activation. The Dolphins have a roster spot available after placing Mike Pouncey (hip) on season-ending injured reserve. Jordan hasn't played an NFL game since 2014 after serving a year-long suspension for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Jordan was noncommittal when asked about his return several weeks ago.

When asked about his chances of returning this year, Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee, NFI) said, "It's kinda hard to tell."

Jordan resumed practicing on Wednesday but there's no guarantee he'll see any game action this year. "It's my body," said Jordan. "If my body tells me I’m not ready to go out there and perform with the best athletes, then I’m not gonna put myself out there, but the way things have been going, they’ve been going well." The former third overall pick hasn't played an NFL snap since 2014.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee surgery, NFI) is expected to resume practicing on Wednesday.

The monumental 2013 draft bust hasn't taken part in a regular season practice since December 2014. It's still just a tiny step. Jordan is recovering from two knee operations. The Dolphins are simply starting his three-week window for activation. It's still possible Jordan doesn't play this season.
Tue, Nov 22, 2016 02:48:00 PM

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee, NFI) is hoping to return this season.

Jordan had a second knee surgery earlier this month, but it's not season ending. He'll still need to avoid setbacks to make it back this year. The Dolphins have a 21-day window to make a decision on Jordan's status.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan (knee, PUP) underwent another operation, and is out indefinitely.

Per the Miami Herald, Jordan had the surgery a "few weeks back." It's starting to look like Jordan isn't going to play this season. His Dolphins tenure has been a catastrophe since they traded up to select him at No. 3 overall in 2013.
Mon, Oct 17, 2016 02:00:00 PM

Dolphins placed DE Dion Jordan (knee) on the reserve/NFI list.

The move will prevent him from playing for at least the first six weeks of the season. Despite the injury, Jordan has earned praise from coach Adam Gase for his work ethic since being reinstated. He could play a role this season. LB Zach Vigil also landed on reserve/NFI, getting Miami to the 75-man roster limit.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 12:20:00 PM

Coach Adam Gase has been impressed with Dion Jordan’s (knee, active/NFI) work ethic.

"Every time he’s supposed be somewhere, he’s there. He’s been engaged in everything we’ve done. Whatever’s happened in the past is irrelevant." Jordan looks fully invested after loafing through his first three seasons. He’s likely to open the year on NFI, but could make a second-half impact.
