    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!

    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.

    Wow! I was so nervous on this one. I really felt a holdout. Props to Jeff, Dawn, the agent and Dion for getting it done. Hope he is cleared to play full go.

    Caps off an excellent offseason.

    Indeed, in hindsight, it looks like there was only a 1% chance of Jordan holding out. So about as much chance as the team moving. Either way, im glad the debate over "is holding out a big deal?" is finally decided. 5 pages of celebration about no one holding out seems to have decided that discussion point quite aptly. Unlike some posts people repeatedly made, it seems the forum does in fact believe its a negative for players to miss even a small amount of training camp.

    As for Jordan, im thankful he didnt let our front offices short sighted "principled stand" get in the way of joining the team. He either 1) bought into the coaching staff, 2) bought into the locker room, 3) just frigging loves football. Or perhaps all 3. In any case, i approve. The guy is a great addition to this franchise.

    My understanding of the new CBA is that 1st round picks #'s 1-16 can be signed to 5 year deals. If that is true, wonder why they didn't try to get Dion Jordan for 5 years instead of 4? Maybe there is an option for a 5th year? I could have mis-understood the CBA changes for 1st round picks. Can anyone please verify?:confused:

    According to the last CBA.

    Section 3.Rookie Contracts:

    (a) Contract Length. Every Rookie Contract shall have a fixed and unalterable contract length: (i) four years for Rookies selected in the first round of the Draft, with a Club option for a fifth year as described in Section 7 below; (ii) four years for Rookies selected in rounds two through seven of the Draft (including any compensatory draft selections); and (iii) three years for Undrafted Rookies.


    Section 7. Fifth-Year Option for First Round Selections:

    (a) Exercise Period. A Club has the unilateral right to extend from four years to five years the term of any Rookie Contract of a player selected in the first round of the Draft (the “Fifth-Year Option”). To do so, the Club must give written notice to the player after the final regular season game of the player’s third season but prior to May 3 of the following League Year (i.e., year four of the contract).

    I believe all contracts are four year contracts but the team has an option for a 5th year if it wants. The option though has to be the average of the top 10 players at his position. So the Dolphins can place a 5th year option on him in 2017 but the pay would almost be that of putting the franchise tag on him.

    EDIT: Geforce beat me to it and did a better job explaining it. :up:

    Dion appears to be a high character guy who enjoys playing football. I'm not surprised that he signed the contract. He wants to get out there and play.

    Also, the team insisted on the offset language, but did the same thing they did for Tannehill last year: they restructured the money a bit to be more appealing for the player. As I understand it, he is getting more of his signing bonus sooner.
