Dolphins Rookie Finally Takes The Field

DAVIE (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins defense got a welcome addition Tuesday when rookie defensive end Dion Jordan took the field for the first time as a member of the team, according to

Jordan had not taken part in offseason training programs or minicamps because the University of Oregon was still in session during the Fins’ programs. Plus, Jordan had a shoulder injury that he was trying to rehab from during the offseason.

The Fins knew about the shoulder issue and still traded up to the number three overall pick to take Jordan. The 6’6”, 250 pound Jordan is expected to at least be on the field during passing situations during his rookie season.

He started camp on the non-football injury list, but was in full pads Tuesday morning.

Miami hopes to get Jordan up to speed quickly and work him in a rotation with Jared Odrick and Olivier Vernon opposite Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake. If Jordan can take even a little pressure off Wake, it will make the Dolphins pass rush infinitely better.
