Report: Dolphins DE Jordan suspended for 2015 season

Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan will sit out the 2015 season resulting from a NFL suspension for a positive drug test, according to a report.

Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, will not appeal the ban, which came from a diluted test sample, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Jordan also was suspended for the first four games without pay in 2014 after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and later given an additional four-game suspension for violating the policy.

ESPN also reported that the suspension puts an end to possible trade discussions with the Philadelphia Eagles regarding Jordan. The 25-year-old played at Oregon when Eagles coach Chip Kelly was with the Ducks.

Jordan has not shown up for the Dolphins’ voluntary workout program this month.

In two NFL seasons, Jordan has fallen short of expectations with just three sacks and 46 tackles in 26 regular-season games. The Dolphins traded up in the 2013 draft to land Jordan.
