    Outstanding! Can he start practice immediately or is there some waiting period?

    Confirming that last tweet - Dolphins got offsets but Jordan gets his signing bonus money quickly, rather than deferred.



    everybody wins. Offsets for a player like Jordan should be a non issue, the chances of him getting cut are so low he shouldn't be afraid.

    For some reason, I thought there was some kind of waiting period. Glad that I an wrong this time! Get to work, DJ, and visualize meeting Cam at the QBs chest!

    Hopefully this eases the fear that anyone had of him not wanting to be here. Good man.

    There was, for Tannehill as Camp had already started, so per the new CBA, he had to wait 3 days before practicing in pads. Jordan does not have to wait because he signed before Camp started so he's good to go from tomorrow morning with the rest of the team.

    Saying that now, it does all depend on his injury status.

    They did the same thing they did with Tannehill. Signing bonus delivered more quickly to compromise with offset language. You'd have to think that with Miami being 2-for-2 on top-10 rookie contracts having offset language, more teams will start trying to do the same thing.

    Nice, see everyone there was really nothing to worry about. I never thought it would be a major issue and I even thought he would miss a day, maybe two of camp. Today was only a report day, not the official first day of training camp, so there is no "holdout" and there is no 3 day waiting period of no pads.

    Since early May when PFT made the first story about the Dolphins wanting offset language there were plenty of threads and posts talking about this issue. A lot of Ireland and Aponte bashing of a speculated scenario that Jordan would be a lengthy holdout over offset language. I remember one poster said that this would be a big issue because Jordan was a defensive end and not a quarterback. Huh?

    At the end of the day the Dolphins got the offset language they wanted, like they always do. There is no holdout, Ireland and Aponte aren't sending Jordan back into the draft next year and the speculated major issue never happened. Next year the Dolphins will insist on offset language with their 2014 1st rounder, people will be up in arms against the team again and then the Dolphins will win the battle once again and there won't be any long term holdouts.

    Go Dolphins!

    Now I understand, thanks for the explanation. I knew there was some concern with a waiting period and the new CBA but didn't know any details. I'm glad it its a non-issue.

    I agree. Dawn Aponte has taken the right stance and others will surely follow. It's a pretty good sign that our front office has improved a lot when we are the "best practice" to be replicated. The other good thing with this is that it also happens to be the right thing to do, ie inserting the offset language to eliminate the prospect of double dipping if the player deserves to be cut.

    Thank God, now we can move Odrick inside and hopefully Jordan has put on some weight so we can rotate him on the outside.

    Fantastic News. So much for the offset language being a problem? Gotta love Aponte and Ireland doing their thing with the new CBA and how contracts are now structured. I just hope Jordan can make up for lost time and get acclimated to the system quick enough to be a factor this season.

    looks pretty healthy to me Travis :idk:

    Good signing by the front office. i like the offset language stuff. You buy a new car you get insurance even though the odds are you will not need it. See Vernon Gholston .

    Thanks for posting OP :up:

    And with offset language. Go, management! I love their hard-stance on this, especially for a risky pick like this one and Tanny, even if they do give a bit back in return.
