Total speculation on one writer's part, but that would be amazing. I didn't realize the Dolphins were playing him as a 4-3 end. That makes no sense.

I'd trade #22 in a heart beat for him.

I like this too, although as mentioned this seems like total speculation.

I don't know too much about how Jordan played this season outside of the dolphins using him sparingly and him having some problems being undersized and playing a
4-3. If anyone knows more feel free to chime in.

I do know that kelly is a big fan of his, and at least midway through the season he graded out into the top 25 defensive ends on PFF (again, to be taken with a grain of salt).

As an aside, its pretty lame that the draft is pushed back to early may this year. shit is too far away.

Before you get your hopes up, Miami would have to absorb a $10 million cap hit if they traded him. Makes it highly unlikely, at least this year.

TG,

Way to be a buzz kill.

I was psyched on the possibility of getting him. The 10 mill hit kills that.

It'd be about a third of their available cap space, and they have other spots they need to fill. The only way I see them doing it is if they have a guy they really like a lot when #22 comes around & their new GM is convinced Jordan will never develop in their current scheme. Graham or Curry would just be a sweetener throw-in, guys who don't really fit the 3-4 but could be more valuable in a 4-3 (just as Jordan is probably a better fit for the 3-4 we're running).

I think there's a chance this happens, but it may not be until after next season assuming Jordan continues to struggle for them; the cap hit for them then would be smaller, also. I do still believe that it would have been a difficult decision for Kelly if both Jordan and Lane Johnson had both been there when our pick came up, so if Jordan becomes available as a reclamation project we could be the place where that happens.
