Dion Jordan is facing a 10-game ban from the NFL for taking Adderall, a violation of the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

The free-agent defensive end has been suspended three times in the past, including for an entire season. He had a therapeutic use exemption to use the drug in the past, but it expired. His past suspensions were for violations of the substance abuse (twice) and PED policies.

"I made a mistake," Jordan said. "I feel like the person that I am, I'm ready to move forward, I've been ready to move forward, with this specific issue. I've been working really hard with myself outside of football, and I can see the progress as a young man, as Dion Jordan, I can see it.

"My whole lifestyle -- it's been a 180-degree change. I f---ed up, man. I can't fix this s---. It is what it is. But I know what I can't do and what not to do compared to the mistakes I've made in the past."
