J. McDonald will join William Hayes on the Miami Dolphins for 2017


Jordan was reinstated by the NFL in July following a 15-month suspension for his latest violation of the league's substance abuse policy. McDonald pleaded no contest to a lesser charge in January, and his suspension was announced Wednesday. Even though Miami wasn't likely expecting much out of Jordan, finally moving on provides them a clean slate to focus on those players that will make an impact for the team in the future. Tim McDonald served as secondary coach for the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills during Rex Ryan's tenure as head coach.

With the $3.2 million in cap space the team cleared with the move and options in the upcoming draft, look for the team to continue adding bodies to the line in an effort to boost the defense.

The Dolphins kept Jordan under contract the previous two years due to his potential. However, Thomas, who has started 23 games at safety and nickel cornerback for the Dolphins over the past three seasons, hasn't signed the tender yet.

Erdogan 'to review European Union ties after referendum'
In June 2016, more than half of British voters voted in favour of ending Britain's 46-year-long European Union membership. The country will vote on whether to move from a parliamentary to a presidential system of government. "It is Switzerland.

According to National Football League rules, McDonald can do everything in OTA's, mini-camp, training camp and preseason. He has career totals of 281 tackles (216 solo), five sacks, four interceptions, 17 passes defensed, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. He started every game a year ago and said it was hard being a free agent with the suspension looming. Once the season begins, he can be in meetings but can't practice, play in games or travel with the team until the suspension is complete.

"My back is up against the wall", said McDonald, who will only be paid for the eight games in which he participates. "It's all about ball for me right now".
