Redskins signed ILB Akeem Jordan.

The Redskins continue to stockpile depth and special teams help at inside linebacker. Jordan, 28, joins Adam Hayward and Keenan Robinson behind Perry Riley and Darryl Sharpton. Jordan had 67 tackles and two forced fumbles while starting 10 games for the Chiefs last season. This will be his first NFL season without Andy Reid as his head coach.

Free agent ILB Akeem Jordan will visit the Redskins.

ESPN 980 Washington first reported the sides' "mutual interest" last week. Jordan isn't a difference-making talent, and would be little more than a body for the Redskins' 53-man roster.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 06:06:00 PM

ESPN 980 Washington reports the Redskins and free agent ILB Akeem Jordan have "mutual interest."

Jordan is coming off a career-best year, but still wasn't a difference maker in 483 snaps last season. He's spent his entire career playing for Andy Reid. Jordan would be a depth signing for a team that's had little depth in recent years.

Free agent LB Akeem Jordan will visit the Titans on Friday.

Jordan appeared in all 16 games, starting ten, in his lone season with the Chiefs. The 28-year-old is a two-down linebacker who doesn't create plays. He has four career forced fumbles and two interceptions across seven seasons.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 06:01:00 PM

Akeem Jordan started alongside ILB Derrick Johnson in Chiefs OTAs Tuesday after running with the first-team defense in voluntary workouts.

He's the mediocre linebacker coach Andy Reid just can't quit. "The thing you get with Akeem is he’s a smart football player," Reid said. "He hasn’t played in the 3-4, but he gives you the trust that he can do that. He doesn’t make a lot of mistakes." Best suited for a reserve/special teams role, Jordan is supposedly competing with fourth-rounder Nico Johnson and Zac Diles, but the job is his to lose.

Akeem Jordan lined up as a starting inside linebacker during Tuesday's minicamp session.

Coach Andy Reid often overrated Jordan's ability in Philadelphia, and it appears he's ready to do the same in Kansas City. The 6'1/230 former undrafted free agent is a little undersized to play inside next to Derrick Johnson and is best served as a situational role player. Zac Diles and Cory Greenwood should also get a chance to run with the starters.
Wed, Apr 17, 2013 10:24:00 AM

Chiefs signed LB Akeem Jordan, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

Jordan visited the Bengals this week and was reportedly drawing interest from "multiple teams." An undrafted free agent in 2007, Jordan has started 27 games over the last four seasons with the Eagles, but will serve as strictly depth in Kansas City's 3-4 defense, where he'll reunite with former coach Andy Reid.
Sat, Apr 13, 2013 09:55:00 PM

The Eagles have made free agent LB Akeem Jordan an offer to return.

Jordan is currently visiting the Bengals, and reportedly drawing interest from "multiple teams." The Eagles were expected to let Jordan go, but they never made their intentions publicly known. Jordan had yet to make a visit before the Bengals called. He'd be returning as depth in Philly.
Tue, Apr 9, 2013 04:43:00 PM

Free agent LB Akeem Jordan is visiting the Bengals Tuesday.

It's the first known interest Jordan has attracted on the open market. The former undrafted free agent was often overused by the Eagles, as he started 27 games over the last four seasons. Ideally, the undersized Jordan is depth at outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme and a core special teamer.
Tue, Apr 9, 2013 08:47:00 AM

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects the Eagles to move on from free agent LB Akeem Jordan.

Jordan has been a valuable role player for the Eagles since 2007, but has never emerged as a full-time starter, and will turn 27 in August. Jordan shouldn't attract interest as a starter on the open market.
Tue, Feb 12, 2013 04:52:00 PM

Eagles WLB Akeem Jordan (hamstring) will return to the starting lineup in Week 6.

Jordan is ready to return after two weeks off. Sluggish thumper Jamar Chaney heads back to the bench.
Wed, Oct 10, 2012 11:51:00 AM

Akeem Jordan (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 5 against the Steelers.

Jordan hasn't returned to practice and won't play for the second straight week. Jamar Chaney will start in his place at weakside linebacker.
Sat, Oct 6, 2012 09:34:00 PM

Akeem Jordan has unseated Brian Rolle as the Eagles' starting weak-side linebacker.

Rookie Mychal Kendricks will start on the strong side and DeMeco Ryans will work the middle. Rolle struggled throughout the preseason and will join Jamar Chaney as the team's primary backup linebackers. On the roster bubble earlier this offseason, 28-year-old Jordan is not a long-term solution.
Sun, Aug 26, 2012 12:28:00 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer believes Eagles LBs Akeem Jordan and Moise Fokou "may face an uphill battle for roster spots."

Both Jordan and Fokou made seven starts in 2011, but could be the odd-men-out after Philly traded for DeMeco Ryans and spent a second-round pick on Mychal Kendricks. Jordan was the more productive player last season, and with two more years of experience in the Eagles' system, should have a leg up on Fokou if it becomes an "either/or" proposition.
