The Miami Dolphins have been cementing their place amongst the most dysfunctional teams in the NFL recently. Going back to Dolphins ex-general manager Jeff Ireland asking Dez Bryant inappropriate questions about his mother, to the bullying scandal to this recent bit of front office mismanagement.
The Dolphins, and Ireland, trade up in the draft sending Oakland the No. 14 and 42 overall picks to get defensive lineman Dion Jordan at the No. 3 spot. Now after just one season, the Dolphins are looking to trade Jordan and are reportedly “gauging his trade value.”
MIA has been gauging trade value for ’13 1st round pick Dion Jordan, league sources said, after trading up to 3rd overall for him last year

Of course Jordan never really fit their defensive scheme and defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle struggled to find a way to use Jordan as they rotated players in and out. HIs rookie season surely isn’t helping his trade value but he does have freakish athletic tools and could be an intriguing player for the right match.
