Schefter reacts to Jordan suspension

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan's suspension has a couple of interesting sidebars, including a now off-the-table trade that would have reunited the former Oregon Duck with Chip Kelly in Philadelphia.


Dolphins better off without Dion Jordan

The DE only has 3.0 sacks in his career despite getting picked 3rd overall in 2013. In the last 2 seasons, more than 230 players have more sacks than that. Which could be why the Dolphins defense is better without Jordan: Miami allowed 2.4 more yards per play last season with Jordan on the field than without.

Familiar foes in the second round
