The Miami Dolphins and rookie Dion Jordan reached a contract agreement on a four-year deal Saturday afternoon, meaning the team’s first-round pick should be on the field for the summer’s first training camp practice Sunday.
It is believed the deal will pay Jordan approximately $20 million with an estimated $13 million guaranteed. Foxsports.com reported that Jordan’s deal did include the offset language, which had been a sticking point in the negotiations, but it also had a provision giving the pass rusher more guaranteed money earlier in the deal.
Jordan did not report to the team’s check in Saturday morning because he was not under contract at the time.
He told the Miami Herald on Friday that he did not expect to hold out of training camp.
