The NFL released the following statement regarding Jordan's status, per former Dolphins Radio Network broadcaster Greg Likens:
Rapoport also tweeted the following regarding the conditions of Jordan's return, while ProFootballTalk provided more insight on Sunday:
The Dolphins traded up to the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft to select Jordan out of Oregon, but he has been a massive disappointment thus far.
In 26 career games before last season's suspension, Jordan registered just 46 tackles and three sacks, and he earned only one start.
While Jordan has been a bust thus far, his potential return figures to be a welcome addition for a Dolphins team that has experienced plenty of turnover this offseason from a pass-rushing perspective.
Veteran Cameron Wake is back; however, he missed nine games in 2015 due to an Achilles injury, and it is unclear how easily he'll bounce back at 34 years of age.
Jordan hasn't even scratched the surface of his potential, and he is just entering his prime at 26.
Coming in and producing right away after missing an entire year may be unrealistic, but the Dolphins can afford to ease him in, assuming Williams and Wake are both healthy to start the 2016 regular season.
Jordan is a pure pass-rusher, and if head coach Adam Gase allows him to play in 3rd-and-long situations and focus solely on getting to the quarterback, then he could finally become a useful commodity for the Dolphins.
