Jordan saw limited action as a rookie last season, recording just 26 tackles and two sacks. He was expected to take the next step as a sophomore in 2014, but this suspension will likely set back any potential of a breakout campaign from the former No. 3 overall pick.
The former Oregon standout was subject to trade rumors throughout the offseason, as there are some within the organization who believe he isn’t a schematic fit. Remember, Miami exhausted a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft by trading up just a few spots to select the pass rusher.
