Eagles wanted to trade for Dion Jordan before suspension
Dion Jordan has been suspended for the 2015 Season by the NFL for violating the Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Jordan provided a diluted urine sample and was suspended as a result. Since this is his third suspension, he did not fight it.
What’s interesting is that the Eagles reportedly were trying to trade for Jordan prior to the suspension.
Interesting part is that Eagles and Dolphins were nearing a trade for Dion Jordan. Then came the diluted sample and suspension. So no deal.

Jordan starred for Chip Kelly at Oregon before being selected No. 3 overall in the 2013 draft. Now he’s well on his way to being one of the biggest busts in history. It probably wouldn’t make much sense for the Eagles to trade for him after the suspension, but Kelly has done stranger things.
