An absolute bust of epic proportions during his forgettable tenure with the Miami Dolphins, defensive end Dion Jordan is getting another shot in the NFL.
The former 3rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Jordan signed with the Seattle Seahawks, according to USA Today Sports.
Miami waived Jordan back on March 31st after he failed a physical. The move saved the Dolphins $3.225 million in salary for 2017.
Jordan is projected to be a strongside linebacker in Seattle’s base defense and this could be the perfect opportunity for him to turn his career around.
Jordan flashed skill and elite athleticism at times with the Dolphins but Miami never seemed to properly utilize a player they traded up to get.
Jordan also had multiple NFL suspensions for violating the league’s substance abuse policy which limited his time on the field and strained his relationship with the organization.
Jordan, 27, was eligible to return from suspension last season but arrived at Dolphins training camp with a knee injury the team was unaware of.
