It’s been such a long time, so much has happened, so many things have changed since we last saw the no. 3 overall pick from the 2013 Draft. But alas, Dion Jordan has been reinstated on a conditional basis to begin his comeback with the Miami Dolphins.
Jeff Ireland, the guy who drafted him, thankfully is long gone. Joe Philbin, his first NFL head coach is gone. Dennis Hickey the GM who managed to add enough talent to almost make him forgotten is also gone. However, one guy who wasn’t here is now here and it may make all the difference in the world. Kiko Alonzo his former team mate and room mate in college at Oregon. Alonzo has proclaimed Jordan to be healthy and focused. Time will tell, and tell quickly as Jordan must prove during this training camp that he is ready to continue his NFL career without incident.
New Dolphin head coach Adam Gase has said Jordan will be evaluated by his performance and that Gase has no prior familiarity with the player. For Jordan’s sake that’s a good thing. The only thing Dolphin fans can hope for is that Jordan passes his upcoming tests with flying colors and becomes a force on a defense everyone feels has made some improvements as we head into the 2016 season.
Best of luck Dion Jordan
