When the Dolphins traded up in the 2013 draft to grab Dion Jordan No. 3 overall, they envisioned him as an athletic, pass-rushing freak.

But nearly two years into his tenure in Miami, the Dolphins can’t find a regular spot for him in the lineup.

For the first time Monday, defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle acknowledged that coaches would consider moving Jordan next season from defensive end to outside linebacker, where the Dolphins have a much greater need.

“We’re going to evaluate everything here as we go into the offseason. That’s certainly going to be one of the main topics,” Coyle said. “We have got to find ways to utilize him more.”

Always a day late and a dollar short. Should have been fired.

Yeah, it should have been done awhile ago, but at this point I'm glad it's just going to happen in general. That is, if he earns the spot LOL..I can see the headlines now...Jordan beat out at OLB.

Aside from starting Tannehill, Philben's coaches have been slow to adjust their teams to the obvious moves that they should make.

totally agree Dave. Like with Fox...I was thinking he was a real old guy and that is why he was not playing. Heck he is only a year older then the RT they are forcing to play. Makes no sense. Fox played very well Sunday.
