The second week of the Miami Dolphins offseason conditioning program began for the Miami Dolphins in earnest Monday morning.
Just not for Dion Jordan.
Jordan, absent from the first week of the voluntary workouts, was absent again today.
And while today's absence is only about, well, today, it suggests Jordan likely isn't going to join the program this week, either.
The NFL draft is Thursday. Teams will get quite serious in their trade talks this week leading up to Thursday's first round and carrying through Saturday's multiple rounds. Do not be surprised if Jordan is traded at some point.
As I discussed here, trading Jordan is a tough situation for the Dolphins.
Firstly, no one will likely give much compensation for a player who has had three career sacks, has a history for not being reliable, and is one positive drug test away from a year's suspension.
There's also the salary cap hit a trade would involve.
It is not good.
The ironic thing? I'm hearing Jordan has been in town recently. So this is not about staying home and working out with a trusted personal trainer or workout buddy.
