The Miami Dolphins are just coming off the excitement of signing Arian Foster to a one-year deal to help solidify one of the weak corps on their roster, the running back unit. Now the Dolphins may have another reason to celebrate and may be improving another area of need.
Currently suspended linebacker/defensive end Dion Jordan is reportedly taking his rehabilitation seriously and it is starting to show.
According to the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley, he is hearing that Jordan looks like a “brand new” Dion who has had a remarkable turnaround. “Dion is doing great.”. You can see Beasley’s tweet below.

This is great news for the Dolphins, who open training camp on July 29th and could use Jordan at the linebacker spot. If Jordan is healthy, past his issues and in good shape, there is a strong possibility he will earn a spot on the Dolphins roster.
But that is only half the battle as Jordan has yet to be notified by the league regarding his suspension and whether he will be re-instated or not. Jordan’s representatives have been optimistic about his availability for Dolphins training camp.
But for now, this is positive news for Miami and Jordan and will likely play a role in the NFL’s decision making process in regards to his potential reinstatement.
