The Miami Dolphins have signed rookie defender Dion Jordan, the team announced on its Twitter page. Financial terms have not been disclosed at this moment, buhe Dolphins now have all their draft picks under contract.
The third overall pick in the NFL Draft missed spring workouts due to shoulder surgery and a late graduation at the University of Oregon, but Jordan is expected to be healthy for training camp. The Dolphins traded up in the draft to get him, sending the No. 12 and No. 42 picks to the Oakland Raiders.
Jordan recorded 44 tackles, 10.5 sacks and three forced fumbles with the Oregon Ducks last season. He was a versatile defender, playing both end and linebacker in Chip Kelly's defense. He's not expected to start immediately and the Dolphins plan to use him at defensive end while bulking him up--he weighed a spry 248 pounds at the Combine.
