On Thursday, the NFL announced that Dion Jordan, Miami Dolphins defensive end who is very well known with price per head sportsbooks, was banned for four games after he violated the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Pay per head services found out that Jordan, who in 2013 was the No. 3 overall draft pick, recently said that he gained 17 pounds of muscle in comparison to last season, when he didn’t get much playing time due to worries about his strength.
Jordan only posted two sacks and 26 tackles in limited playing time as a rookie.
“We were disappointed to learn about Dion’s suspension,” Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said.
“Dion has accepted responsibility for his actions and is committed to improving, both on and off the field, in preparation for the upcoming year.”
Price per head sportsbooks can see that the player’s suspension hurts the Dolphins’ depth at defensive end. They were planning to use Jordan as main backup to starter Olivier Vernon and Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake, and as a pass-rushing specialist.
The player’s first game off suspension won’t be until Week 6, when the Dolphins host the Green Bay Packers. Miami have a bye in Week 5.
“I recently learned from the NFL that I tested positive for stimulants that are banned under the NFL policy,” Jordan said. “I worked carefully with my advisors and the union to investigate the test results, and I take full responsibility for the test results.
“I’m very sorry for the impact of this situation on my teammates, coaches, Stephen Ross, the entire Dolphins organization, fans and my family as well. I will continue to work extremely hard during training camp and preseason. During the suspension, I will stay in top shape and will be ready to contribute upon my return.”
Miami continue getting bad news over the summer. Pay per head services learned that besides Jordan, the Dolphins will be without Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey, who recently had hip surgery and is expected to miss from three to four months of action.
