Suspended free agent safety TJ McDonald signs with Dolphins

The Dolphins have signed free-agent safety Nate Allen in the wake of releasing Isa Abdul-Quddus due to a serious neck/shoulder injury.

The details of the contract are not yet public, but when he returns after he serves his eight-game suspension, McDonald will add depth to the Miami secondary. McDonald eventually pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in January and won't face any jail time for the incident.

Safety T.J. McDonald won't be eligible to play in the first half of the 2017 season, but that hasn't stopped him from landing a job for the second half of the year. He hasn't played in a game since the 2014 season.

According to's James Walker, the Dolphins have agreed to a one-year deal with McDonald.

News of the suspension became public earlier this week during McDonald's free-agent visit with the Dolphins. "(My) priorities changed, everything's changed". "It was just something that I'm definitely paying the price for the mistakes that I've made, that I'm definitely going to own up to".

"I'm just happy to be able to move forward with this and be able to just get back to playing ball", McDonald said.

McDonald was meeting with the Dolphins when the suspension was handed down, though both sides were fully informed that a suspension was likely.

Jordan, whose career with Miami was limited to 26 games in four years because of drug related suspensions and knee issues he battled last season, was waived after failing a physical. Hopefully whatever was going on in his life that cause the DUI is behind him and that he's able to get back on the field permanently.
