Jordan was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Dolphins, and had a disappointing rookie season.
Jordan will be eligible to return to the Dolphins’ active roster on Monday, September 29 following the team’s September 28 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Jordan released this statement:
“I recently learned from the NFL that I tested positive for stimulants that are banned under the NFL policy. 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.”
