Dolphins just signed a free agent who's suspended for 8 games

Jordan will go down as one of the worst draft picks in Dolphins history.

In the 10 games the former No. 3 overall selection appeared in, Jordan made 13 solo tackles with one sack and one pass deflected. The NFL found that McDonald violated its substance abuse policy after an incident in May in which he was suspected of driving under the influence of prescription drugs.

The Miami Dolphins announced the signing of the free-agent safety on Friday.

McDonald was a physical presence in his four years with the Rams since being drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. None of the players they selected that year remain on the team.

"The one thing I can do is earn the respect for my work - through camp and OTAs - of my teammates and the coaches and provide a spark when I can". "Week 9, I'll be chomping at the bit". He learned of his suspension during his free agent visit this week with the Dolphins.

"The whole attitude of this team plays ball the right way and it's something that I want to be a part of", McDonald said in comments provided by the Dolphins.

"I just got to be hungry, stay clean and be open and honest about everything and make sure that this doesn't happen in the future", McDonald said. Hopefully whatever was going on in his life that cause the DUI is behind him and that he's able to get back on the field permanently.

Despite McDonald's signing, safety remains a position of need for the Dolphins heading into April's National Football League draft because Allen, Thomas, Walt Aikens and possibly McDonald are all expected to become unrestricted free agents in 2018.
