Suspended free agent safety TJ McDonald signs with Dolphins

Koa Misi will get a chance to earn back his starting spot

Salguero noted that McDonald had multiple offers, but chose the Dolphins based on opportunity and a fresh start away from the West Coast - where he went to college at USC and played last season for the Rams.

Via Twitter, the Dolphins have officially welcomed McDonald to Miami.

Jordan was reinstated by the NFL in July following a 15-month suspension for his latest violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

Jones pleaded guilty to a reckless driving charge involving drugs in January.

During a conference call on Friday, McDonald said he knew that the suspension was coming before it was officially announced, which likely explains why he lasted on the free agent market for so long.

"I just got to be hungry, stay clean and be open and honest about everything and make sure that this doesn't happen in the future", McDonald said.

Tillerson: Defeating ISIS is US's top goal in the Middle East
Tillerson said the strategy was working well in Iraq, adding that the alliance was looking at a similar approach in Syria. Tillerson said the flow of foreign fighters into Syria and Iraq was down 90 percent over the past year.

McDonald learned of his suspension the same day that he met with the Dolphins.

"It is very unfortunate that T.J. will miss the first eight games this season, but he and I are both looking forward to him returning to regular-season action when eligible."
Veteran Nate Allen signed with Miami earlier this offseason after two substandard seasons with the Oakland Raiders.

The Dolphins clear $3.2 million of salary cap space by releasing Jordan, 27, who contributed all of 46 tackles and three sacks during his two seasons on the field.

"My back is up against the wall", he said.

A four-year starter for the Rams, McDonald adapted to the National Football League quickly, totaling 215 tackles, 18 pass breakups, five sacks, four interceptions, and several game-changing hits over his first four seasons.

"The whole attitude of this team plays ball the right way and it's something that I want to be a part of", McDonald said in comments provided by the Dolphins.
