Dion Jordan Makes Camp Signs Contract


The Miami Dolphins have all of their roster in camp for the first day as first round pick Dion Jordan has signed his rookie deal.  

The deal is 4 years 20.5 million with a 13.5 million dollar signing bonus and the off-set language is part of the deal as the Dolphins wanted.  It’s the second season in a row that Miami has fought this language in a rookie contract and held firm.  On Thursday the DE “Tweeted” that he would not hold out that a deal was close.  It was.

He spent the off-season rehabbing a torn labrum and will likely start the Dolphins camp deep on the depth chart.  The bigger question is how will defensive coordinator use the pass rush specialist who doesn’t really fit into the Dolphins 4-3 scheme?  It’s been a point of speculation all off-season since the Dolphins traded up to number three to draft him.
