The Dolphins are so desperate for defensive backs that today they signed a guy who can’t even play for them.
Safety T.J. McDonald is suspended already, and he cannot play until at least Week 8, assuming that he passes all drug tests and assuming that the NFL approves of his formal reinstatement request.
Of course, Dion Jordan was in the exact same situation before, where all he had to do was stay clean and serve a three-game suspension. However, during his suspension, he got suspended again for using drugs again. I won’t be naive again. You see, I used to think that it would be easy for Dion.
These were his choices:
- Don’t do drugs for three weeks, and then in three short weeks, you’ll be back playing and earning a millions of dollars a month.
- Take more drugs, remain poor, and become the biggest bust in Dolphins draft history.
Dion chose Option #2. Let’s hope T.J. McDonald is a bit smarter. Let’s hope the executives who signed this guy are smarter.
In related news, the Dolphins finally got rid of Dion Jordan. Steroids, ecstasy, secret knee operations…. He did it all, and still remained on the team for 3 years.
