Dion Jordan returns to Dolphins after suspension

Finally, Dion Jordan has come back to the Miami Dolphins.

The defensive end returned after missing six games while on suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse.

The 2013 No. 3 overall pick has yet to find his niche on the Dolphins' defense, but the coaching staff has no worries about finding a place in the rotation for the athletic Jordan.

"It won't be tough," defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "When you have good players you find ways to utilize them and he's certainly a very talented guy."

The Dolphins add Jordan to a front that dominated in Chicago last week and a stingy Miami defense that is No. 4 in total yards allowed (313.7).

We still believe Jordan is out of place in a 4-3 scheme, but he will add another pass-rushing dimension to a Dolphins defense that could keep Miami in the playoff hunt moving forward in the AFC East -- if the offense can find any consistency.
