Former Dolphins First-Round DE Dion Jordan Clears Waivers, Now Free Agent

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that former Dolphins first-round pick DE/OLB Dion Jordan officially cleared waivers on Monday and is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Dolphins made the decision to officially move on from Jordan last week, which didn’t come as much of a surprise, considering that he hasn’t played in a few years and there’s now a new regime in place.

It was unlikely that any team was going to claim his at his current price, but there’s at least a chance he could find some interest in the coming months.

Jordan, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2010. He had two years remaining on his four-year, $20.572 million rookie contract when the Dolphins cut him loose.

The Dolphins traded up to No. 3 overall to select Jordan, but he hasn’t come anywhere close to living up to his draft status and has been suspended twice since entering the NFL for performance-enhancing drug violations and undergone two knee surgeries.

In 2014, Jordan appeared in 10 games and recorded 20 tackles, one sack, and a pass defense for the Dolphins.
