Dion Jordan returns to Dolphins after year-long suspension
Friday July 29th, 2016

Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan has been conditionally reinstated from his year-long drug suspension, the NFL announced Friday

Jordan, the No. 3 pick in the 2013 draft, sat out all of last season after violating the league’s substance-abuse policy for a third time. He applied for reinstatement in May

The conditions of his reinstatement require Jordan to undergo counseling and be evaluated by the NFL before he is allowed to play in Week 1.

Jordan is under contract through at least 2017, with a team option for 2018. 

Jordan was also suspended six games in 2014 for a drug violation. In 26 career NFL games, he has 46 tackles and three sacks. He has started one game.
