Dion Jordan Won’t Hold Out


Miami Dolphins first round draft pick Dion Jordan remains unsigned. But despite the fact that they haven’t reached an agreement yet, Jordan reassured fans to rest easy, he’ll be at training camp.

“It’s not finalized yet, but I’ll be there,” Jordan promised the Miami Herald.

The dispute is over guaranteed money. Miami’s front office though is insisting his contract contain offset language. That ‘language’ would allow the Dolphins to recoup some of Jordan’s salary if they cut him before his contract is up.

Dion Jordan needs to get into training camp to catch up with the rest of the team and a revamped and reloaded Dolphins defense. Dion Jordan hasn’t taken a ‘true snap’ in practice since being drafted by the Dolphins. The Miami Herald asked Jordan about how much ground he needs to make up.

Jordan simply said “a lot.”

“But I’m not the only person who feels like he has a lot to do coming into the season,” he added. “I’ve got to put the work in, regardless.”

But Jordan said he’s excited for football to return, like most Americans.

“I’m sure everybody is around the country,” he added. “It’s about that time, people are getting tired of watching baseball.”
