The Miami Dolphins on Friday released defensive end Dion Jordan, solidifying his status as an NFL Draft bust.

Jordan started one game and totaled three sacks after being taken with the No. 3 overall draft pick in 2013.

The NFL reinstated Jordan in July following a 15-month suspension for his latest violation of the leagueís substance abuse policy. He spent last season rehabilitating from knee surgery and hasnít played since 2014.

The former Oregon starís release had been expected, and he was waived after failing a physical.

Jordanís departure coincided with the signing of free agent safety T.J. McDonald, who will miss the first half of the season while serving an eight-game suspension for violating the leagueís substance abuse policy.

McDonald was arrested last May in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence. He said heís glad heíll be able to take part in offseason team activities, training camp and preseason games before his suspension begins.

McDonald spent the past four seasons with the Rams, starting 53 games, and totaled four interceptions.

Vikings have backup

The Minnesota Vikings will sign former Houston Texans and Los Angeles Rams quarterback Case Keenum to a one-year deal worth $2 million plus incentives, ESPN reported.

Keenum, 29, will replace Shaun Hill as quarterback Sam Bradfordís backup.

As a starter in nine games last season for the Rams, Keenum threw for 2,201 yards and nine touchdowns with 11 interceptions.

The Vikings donít know when Teddy Bridgewater will return from a leg injury suffered last August.

Saints sign Daniel

The New Orleans Saints brought back former reserve quarterback Chase Daniel on a one-year contract.

Daniel returns to New Orleans after four seasons away.

Daniel spent last season with Philadelphia and was with Kansas City from 2013 to 2015.

Joining the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri in 2009, Daniel spent his first four pro seasons with the Saints. Heís played in 56 games with two starts during eight NFL seasons, completing 51-of-78 passes for 480 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Bears cut lineman

The Chicago Bears have defensive lineman Ego Ferguson.

A 2014 second-round draft pick, he appeared in 20 games over three years for Chicago and had 36 tackles.

Ferguson sat out last season because of a shoulder injury after missing 12 games in 2005 because of a knee problem.
