PHOENIX — Miami Dolphins Executive Vice President Mike Tannenbaum was given three opportunities on Monday to say defensive end Dion Jordan is in the team’s future plans.
Tannenbaum didn’t flat-out say Jordan is or isn’t.
But it sure doesn’t sound like he is.
“Obviously from where he was selected to today it’s not a move that’s worked out,” Tannenbaum said. “It’s pretty obvious. We’ll keep evaluating our roster and make moves when we feel it’s appropriate.”
Tannenbaum’s response came to a question about if Jordan has met the organization’s expectations in recent times.
When Tannenbaum was asked directly if Jordan will be a part of Miami’s April workouts, he said: “Our roster is always up for discussion.”
When Tannenbaum was asked directly if he believes Jordan can help the club at defensive end or linebacker, he said: “Like I said, we’re going to keep evaluating our options there and when we have an update we’ll let you guys know.”
Doesn’t sound hopeful for Jordan.
Jordan was the third pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
But he has missed the last two seasons due to substance abuse violations and injury.
