Dion Jordan trade rumors: Dolphins shopping former top pick?

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are reportedly trying to trade Dion Jordan, should the Jaguars be interested?

In a bit of surprising news, the Miami Dolphins are putting out feelers for a  trade involving the 2013 No. 3 overall pick, Dion Jordan. Jordan, who was someone thought to be a target for the Jacksonville Jaguars at the No. 2 pick, played in just 339 snaps for the Dolphins as a rookie and was disappointing.

As we know, the Jaguars picked left tackle Luke Joeckel with the No. 2 overall pick and in a surprising move Jordan went immediately after to the Dolphins, who gave up their 2nd round pick to move up from No. 12 overall to select the versatile Oregon pass rusher.

As mentioned, Jordan was a massive disappointment for the Dolphins, but there were plenty of rumors of the staff being at odds with general manager Jeff Ireland and refusing to play Jordan and the fact that they played him out of position, full time at defensive end in a 4-3 front.

Jordan was viewed to be best used as a 3-4 outside linebacker for a 4-3 SAM linebacker who could blitz and cover.

The problem with trading Dion Jordan is that the Dolphins are likely going to want to recoup what they had to give up for Jordan and if a trade was made they would have to incur a $12 million cap hit. The Dolphins may not want Jordan at all however, so simply getting something in return rather than have him hold up a roster spot to only release him a year later may not make much sense either.

What would you give up to make a deal for Jordan?
