NFL trade rumors from 2014 have the Miami Dolphins trying to trade Dion Jordan. These Jordan trade rumors are interesting because the Dolphins took him as the No. 3 selection in the 2013 NFL Draft. According to a report from CBS Sports on Friday (Feb. 28), the team is calling around the league to try to gauge his value.
The thought process here seems to be that the front office wants to move up the draft board in 2014. To do that, the team likely has to package its own pick with a player like Jordan to get a deal done. Currently the team has the No. 19 pick in the first round and mock drafts have linked them to Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio. He isn't a bad player, but the Dolphins have apparently set their sights a bit higher than that.
Unquestionably, the two top tier offensive lineman (according to the scouts) are Greg Robinson from Auburn and Jake Matthews from Texas A&M. Both are likely top 10 selections, so that is where the Dolphins would have to move if they wanted to get one of them. A bit further down is Zack Martin from Notre Dame, who is expected to go somewhere from 10 to 20 in the draft.
These 2014 NFL trade rumors could very easily lead to something taking place, as several teams have expressed interest in trading down from the first round. That could even include the St. Louis Rams and the No. 2 pick that they possess. The question becomes whether the Miami Dolphins can actually find a team that they match up well with in a potential deal. An additional asset that they could include is Mike Wallace if a team doesn't mind taking on his salary.
