Dolphins Waive Dion Jordan After Failed Physical

Apr 01, 2017, 00:50

The details of the contract are not yet public, but when he returns after he serves his eight-game suspension, McDonald will add depth to the Miami secondary.

McDonald will serve an eight-game suspension as a result of last year's arrest for crashing into a parked auto. McDonald pleaded no contest to a lesser charge in January.

McDonald learned of his suspension the same day that he met with the Dolphins.

"I'm definitely paying the price for the mistakes that I've made, that I'm definitely going to own up to", McDonald said Friday. He last played during the 2014 regular season. The Rams figured that punishment from the National Football League would eventually come down on McDonald but were going to move on from him anyway.

Safety T.J. McDonald won't be eligible to play in the first half of the 2017 season, but that hasn't stopped him from landing a job for the second half of the year. Jordan never showed Miami's coaching staff enough a year ago to get on the active roster. However, Thomas, who has started 23 games at safety and nickel cornerback for the Dolphins over the past three seasons, hasn't signed the tender yet.

"I'm coming back [after the suspension] against the wall", McDonald said.

A four-year starter for the Rams, McDonald adapted to the National Football League quickly, totaling 215 tackles, 18 pass breakups, five sacks, four interceptions, and several game-changing hits over his first four seasons. "It's all about ball for me right now".
