Suspended Dolphins DE Dion Jordan Closer To Being Reinstated?

Doug Hendrickson, the agent for suspended Dolphins DE Dion Jordan, indicated via his Twitter account that his client could be reinstated by the NFL at some point in the near future.

Beyond that, Jordan’s trainer, Tareq Azim, posted a picture of Jordan working out, along with the message:

Happy to announce my man @dionj95 will solidify his presence to the world #NFL #stableofchampions #humbleanimals #2016seasonisours @empowersanfrancisco

Jordan is eligible to apply for reinstatement now that he’s served his suspension after violating the NFL’s drug policy.

Jordan was eligible to begin the process of being reinstated back in February, but it isn’t known whether he and his agent have started the process.

One Dolphins source previously told Armando Salugero that the team expects to welcome Jordan back if and when he is reinstated. However, a separate source mentioned that that is “mere posturing” by the team in hopes of making Jordan available in a trade.

Jordan, 26, still has two years remaining on his four-year, $20.572 million rookie contract, which includes base salaries of $600,000 (2016) and $690,000 (2017).

The Dolphins traded up to No. 3 overall back in 2012 to select Jordan, but he hasn’t come anywhere close to living up to his draft status.

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