According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the Dolphins are gauging the trade value of pass rushing specialist Dion Jordan. Miami traded two picks — Nos. 12 and 42 overall — to the Oakland Raiders to move up to the No. 3 spot to take Jordan last year. He only played about 20 snaps per game last season with Miami, and the new regime is checking to see what they can get for him. ESPN’s Louis Riddick has been saying that the Dolphins were thinking about trading Jordan.
Though the Dolphins felt Jordan was worthy of the No. 3 overall pick last year, some draft analysts felt that was a reach because they believed he was a one-dimensional player.
The Philadelphia Eagles jump out as an immediate possible trade partner. Chip Kelly coached Jordan in college at Oregon, and the Eagles were extremely interested in the defensive end during last year’s draft.
If the Dolphins are willing to part with the No. 3 overall pick after just one season, we imagine plenty of teams will be interested.
