    Good read... thanks for posting. The LEO position as they are calling it is much like the ''Elephant'' position that JT was in under Saban. That said, it'll be interesting to see what we ACTUALLY do as with the addition of Jim Washburn, we were rumored to be in the ''Wide 9''...

    I'd love to get DJ back into the fold and see what the new staff can do with him, but at this point, it's all up to the league. Until they make a ruling on his eligibility and tell us whether we can have official contact, it's mum.

      DJ is a freak...a gifted natural athlete that could change the course of any game. if he comes back, this is the best time for him. He would be re-united with two of his former team mates and playing for a new coach would help ease the transition.

      The previous regimen had no idea on how to use DJ...i believe VJ and Gase would use him right

        Has DJ even applied for reinstatement? I think DJ should just play the Sam and stay on the Gronks like white on rice and he can always rush from there as well. IMO DJ is way better rushing from a stand up position than hands in the dirt. The last preseason games he was in against the deep depths proved that.

          Why hasn't he applied for reinstatement? Is it because he knows he can't pass a drug test? Is it because he doesn't want to be drug tested multiple times per week over the summer, so he can party it up like a child? Or, is there another reason why after all this time Jordan still isn't ready to try and make his comeback?

          I heard that he suffers from some sort of depression disorder or anxiety disorder. If true, I always thought that it would be a great idea for the Dolphins to give Ricky Williams a call and put him back on the payroll to help this kid out. Maybe he just needs some mentoring and guidance on how to deal with the pressures of being an NFL player. I hope he comes back, not just for the team but for the kid himself. It would be sad to waste all that God given talent.

            They've been drug testing him over the past year I suspect. I don't think they just walk away and let him go a year without testing him or it would defeat the purpose of the suspension and it's intended impact, which is force the athletes to either quit with the drugs and come back in a year or stay out of the league. While I don't know this as fact I'm pretty sure they don't suspend a guy for a year then not keep testing him, but I could be wrong.

            My guess is he's applied and just hasn't met with the commish yet to be reinstated.

            I think your opinion of how the league works is a good one but I am not sure that it actually does work that way. In fact, it actually doesn't really make sense.

            The player has failed multiple drug tests and is now banned from the NFL. He is not allowed to communicate with his former teammates or coaches and if he does, if he applies for reinstatement his former team and that player will be penalized. To my knowledge if a player is banned, they are no longer an NFL player so they can do whatever they want. If they choose to do the right thing and stay clean, they can apply for reinstatement and after doing so they have to immediately go into the drug program and be randomly drug tested X amount of times per week. I have no idea if what I think is true actually is but it makes sense to me if it is.

          NFL guidelines are that once you're in the NFL ban substance program, the team cannot have any interaction with the player. HIPPAA privacy guidelines go into effect around status.

          The Browns violated this with Josh Gordan and are currently getting sued for violating his privacy and NFL league rules.

          Nothing we can do but wait.

            Let's hope he comes back and is put where he belonged in the first place, losing this guy and his ability to cover TE's as well as what we gave up to get him, that would hurt this team....

            Would be another huge bust in draft picking.....could be the biggest Miami has had....

            My thought has always been he was moved to a position he didn't have the frame for nor was built for, but this is the NFL and you figure it out or get cut....Not sure, but my bet is if Miami had left him at OLB, he'd be a stud on this team right now.....

          and talk about how this guy covers TEs like Myles Jack, and has serious chops as a pass rusher. It is beyond lunacy that the Dolphins could not figure out how to use him. Between his injury and their incompetence, I wonder if that contributed to his issues.....which are still not well defined as far as I can tell. Was it only performance enhancing drugs, or was he borrowing LTs bong? Don't know, really don't care. If there was ever a Poster Child for mind and attitude over ability, he is it. I just want him back as he, in his perfect form, is just what we need on this team.

            DJ started football as a TE himself and understands the position and the routes TE's run. He was very good in coverage from what I recall against the Pats and Lions.

            Philbin and Coyles both should have been fired prior to the 2014 season IMO.

          Dion Jordan: I 'can't waste' chance if reinstated by NFL

          http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...nstated-by-nfl

          The No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Jordan plans to apply for NFL reinstatement on Wednesday after a failed drug test in December 2014 triggered an indefinite ban.
          "I'm not about to waste it. I can't waste it. And I (expletive) love doing it," Jordan told Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports. "Who doesn't love running out in front of 30,000-plus fans and you get that rush? But it's also things that you can get that rush from that can be very satisfying and can carry you on to a successful life after football.

          "I just turned 26 years old, so life starts to hit you in the face. Who are you outside of those shoulder pads and helmet?" Jordan asked. "And it's weird, but I feel like it's a blessing for me at this point in time to think about it, instead of waiting 'til they really tell me I can't play football no more."

          Agent Doug Hendrickson says Jordan hasn't missed or failed a drug test since his ban began in April 2015. Hendrickson believes his client will be reinstated, based largely on how Jordan has grown during his suspension.

          ===

          I'm sure the new coaching staff, as well as his friend, Kiko, have helped motivate him. Hoping he can come back and excel.

            Agreed... and reuniting DJ, Kiko, and IEO could be a very good thing. All 3 were very good at Oregon and should provide a solid support base for Jordan.

            Would love to see Jordan be able to come back and send Misi to the bench at SS LB.

          I hope he's got his #2 together! He's saying the right things but at this point words are useless. Just a wait and see situation.
