Bust: Former 3rd overall pick Jordan released by Dolphins

March 31, 2017 - 4:27 pm

MIAMI (AP) — Defensive end Dion Jordan has been released by the Miami Dolphins, solidifying his status as a draft bust.

Jordan started one game and totaled three sacks after being taken with the No. 3 overall draft pick four years ago.

Jordan was reinstated by the NFL in July following a 15-month suspension for his latest violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He spent last season rehabilitating from knee surgery and hasn't played in a game since 2014.

The former Oregon star's release has been expected, and he was waived Friday after failing a physical.

Jordan's departure coincided with the signing of free agent safety T.J. McDonald, who will miss the first half of the season while serving an eight-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
