While second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill, rookie kicker Caleb Sturgis and tight end Charles Clay have certainly impressed this season, that has not been the case for every Miami Dolphin.

Jordan hoping to make impact for Miami

Dion Jordan's NFL career got off to a slow start with the Miami Dolphins. It's time for the rookie defensive end to start making an impact.

Pitiful Picks: No Dolphins, no problem; Still a lot to watch on Sunday
