Dolphins LB Koa Misi, DE Dion Jordan staying at positions
by Dave Peters |

Dolphins Inside linebacker Koa Misi and defensive end Dion Jordan will remain at their respective positions for the time being, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Head coach Joe Philbin talked about Misi's ankle injury and how it affected his play last season. But the coach also likes what that have in Misi.

"We like the way he plays defensive football. We think he plays fast, physical and tough," Philbin said of Misi.

Jordan, the team's first overall draft choice in 2013, will stay at defensive end for now, as the team still believes he can get after the passer from the position.

"We want to get his training there [on the line] to improve so he can continually develop his pass rushing ability. If we play him at linebacker, move him there full time when is he going to practice rushing the passer?" Philbin reasoned. "That doesn't mean he'll never cover a tight end again. But that's kind of where we are right now."

Dolphins' Joe Philbin: Dion Jordan to focus on being a DE
by Jason Butt |

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin doesn't appear to be agreeing with vice president Mike Tannenbaum when it comes to Dion Jordan

On Sunday, Tannenbaum, via the Sun Sentinel, said the front office was undecided on how Jordan would be utilized on the field in 2015. A defensive end, Tannenbaum hinted at the possibility of moving Jordan to outside linebacker. 

On Tuesday, Philbin told reporters Jordan will be staying at defensive end. 

"We're going to utilize him as [a defensive end]," Philbin said, via the Miami Herald. "Improve and develop his pass rush ability."

In 2014, Jordan recorded 26 tackles and two sacks.

Dolphins undecided on defensive end Dion Jordan
by Brandon Wise |

The Dolphins are trying to decide what to do with Dion Jordan. The second-year pro has expressed an interest in continuing to lineup as a defensive end, but Miami is considering moving him out to linebacker, according to the Sun Sentinel.

"That's one [decision] we;re going to keep talking through," vice president Mike Tannenbaum said at the NFL's Owner's Meetings. "Obviously he's a great pressure player in the front seven, a great athlete. We all see the play last year where he's running 60 yards down-field covering [Lions receiver] Calvin Johnson. There aren't many people on the planet that can do those things. He's a young athletic guy with great upside and we’ll see how that plays out."

The Dolphins recently cut Philip Wheeler and traded away Dannell Ellerbe, leaving open spots in the linebacking corps.

Dolphins' Dion Jordan on position change: 'I'm a defensive end'
by Igor Mello |

Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan told reporters while cleaning out his locker during Monday's exit interviews that he doesn't need a position switch in 2015 in order to reach his potential, per ESPN.

"I'm a defensive end, man," Jordan said. "I will continue to do whatever they need me to do, whether it's covering a special-teams kick or blocking on a kickoff return or covering guys in space."

Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said prior to Week 17 that the team would consider moving him to outside linebacker next season. However, Coyle's job could be in jeopardy.  Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft, was suspended twice this season, which kept him sidelined for six games. He posted 20 tackles and a sack in 10 games.

Dolphins might move Dion Jordan to outside linebacker
by Larry Hartstein |

Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan got his first sack of the season Sunday against Minnesota. Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle told the Palm Beach Post the team needs more production from the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft and will consider moving him to outside linebacker next season.

"We have got to find ways to utilize him more," Coyle said.

Miami has a bigger need at outside linebacker than defensive end. Since returning from a six-game suspension to start the season, Jordan has played 34 percent of the defensive snaps. He has 16 tackles and a sack in nine games.
