Post Dion Jordan primarily as DE or OLB?
It's a safe bet to say that we will see him in both, but is there a chance that Jordan plays more snaps as an OLB, dropping into coverage more, and being a situational pass rusher? I have read a few articles referring to him playing that position over being our edge rusher opposite of Wake, which seems to be the consensus opinion here.

personally I'd like to see him on the edge...

The New York Giants have never coveted the LB position, always opting to add more fire power to the D-Line... and they have two championships.

I'll jump on that wagon.

I agree, I would love to see Wake and Jordan both on each side of the opposing offensive line, there are very few (if at all) any other pass rushing duo in the league with more upside than these two. Wake could be in for a COLOSSAL year if he sees the double teaming die down. If the corners hold up, this defense can become an elite top 5 in 2013.

It's intriguing to think of Cam Wake on one side and Olivia Vernon/Dion Jordan coming at you on the other side on passing downs. Let's add in a blitz up the middle to go with that from one of our athletic linebackers. Man ....

Do you think team speed was a priority this year? Geez... look at the athleticism and speed in our front 7, compared to last year. Ellerbe, Wheeler, Jordan. Fast, young, athletic guys that play with their hair on fire.

Miami really did go in the direction of more speed on Defense. Jordan is going to be able to be used as both a pass rusher and outside linebacker. Hopefully with the addition of Jordan, Wheeler & Ellerbe Brady won't be able to pick Miami apart on the quick slants and with TE's.
