Thu, 24 Jul 2014 18:02:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan will need a good amount of snaps during training camp, but the team understands they need to get other players ready for the season as well, according to head coach Joe Philbin. "As a young player, my feeling is he needs to get work especially in the bigger picture that he's not going to be getting work later on. He needs work now. But we can't jeopardize the preparation of other guys. At the same time, we're going to have to get him work. He's going to get it without a doubt. And he needs it. And he needs padded work," Philbin said.

Dolphins | Some believe Dion Jordan could play linebacker

Sun, 09 Feb 2014 08:43:39 -0800

Some inside the Miami Dolphins organization believe that DE Dion Jordan could be more effective at linebacker. "When we drafted Jordan, nobody expected Olivier Vernon to develop like he did," a Dolphins source said. "My concern is [Jordan] will have struggles playing against bigger tackles. If you play him at linebacker, he has far more range and speed and explosiveness than Misi. But Koa is more consistent and steady. Jordan gives you great flexibility because he can cover and rush the passer. This is a huge offseason for him."
