Jordan was on the field for less than a quarter of the Dolphins' defensive snaps as a rookie in 2013, paying only modest dividends after receiving a $13.3 million signing bonus. He excelled as a pass rusher for Oregon, but at 6-6 and less than 250 pounds, the rookie had trouble finding a home in the Dolphins' 3-4 defense.
A stronger Jordan should be a better fit at end, and he said the additional bulk hasn't cost him any speed or quickness. Plus, he said, the extra weight comes in handy on days on Monday, when the temperature was near 90 by the time practice ended.
