Today, the Dolphins shut Mike Pouncey down for the season in order to free up a spot for quarterback T.J. Yates. Today was also the deadline for the Dolphins to find a place for embattled defensive end Dion Jordan. That afternoon deadline has come and gone and the team has opted against putting Jordan on the roster, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald tweets.
Teams have three weeks to make a determination on an NFI list player once he begins practicing. Apparently, the former No. 3 overall pick did not show enough in practice to warrant consideration for the final stretch of the season. Jordan and his reps spent the summer telling everyone that he would fulfill his potential in 2016. Now, we’ll have to wait another year to find out if Jordan can put it all together.
Through 26 games in 2013 and 2014, Jordan registered only 46 tackles and three sacks. He has not appeared in an NFL game since December 28, 2014.
