The Miami Dolphins waived former 2013 first-round pick Dion Jordan on Friday after he failed a physical.

The move will save the Dolphins $4.225 million in salary for 2017.

The Dolphins moved up from No. 12 to No. 3 four years ago to select Jordan out of Oregon.

 Jordan had just three career sacks and multiple NFL suspensions for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He hasn't played in a game since the 2014 season.

The Dolphins kept Jordan under contract the past two years because of his potential.
