As many of you know, the NFL has not officially determined if Dion Jordan is allowed to play this year.
While he was suspended for a year and served that year, apparently the NFL still has to clear him. Like a prisoner who is sentenced to a year and then serves his year, the judge can then keep him and his family in suspense and may decide to change his mind. Okay, that last part was sarcastic; it’s based on the absurdly inconsistent guidelines the NFL has toward punishments.
The thing that bothers me most is that the Dolphins don’t seem to care. And they don’t seem to be getting any respect from the league. Now this is conjecture, and I could be dead wrong here, but when other teams await decisions, don’t those decisions tend to come in hours, not weeks? Can you imagine Jerry Jones or Robert Kraft waiting patiently as the NFL takes its time deciding who is allowed to be on their roster. No way.
It feels like Jones and Kraft have clout, where Stephen Ross doesn’t. Ross is too busy building an awning when he should be building a football team. He needs to be demanding answers, not working on soccer tournaments from NY City.
Again, I do not have these facts, but there is no indication that Ross is on the phone to Goodell, demanding an answer on Dion Jordan’s status. Year in and year out, it seems the Dolphins roll over for whatever the league hands them. Go play a home game in London. Sit down and wait while we delay the Jordan decision. Fire Richie Incognito.
I’m not a fan of Dion and he has done zero to win me over. However, he deserves to know if he has a job, and the Dolphins deserve to know if they need to keep a roster spot open for him.
Enough already. Test his pee, and let us know if he’s back or not so we can move on.
