According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordon to a one year deal. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2007. The seven year veteran spent his entire career under new Chiefs coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia and will give the Chiefs more depth at linebacker. In 2012, Jordan had 44 tackles and 4 forced fumbles in 14 games. Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com writes: ‘Jordan started 34 games with the Eagles over the course of his time with the team, playing mostly on the outside. The Chiefs have no needs at those spots in the starting lineup, but they do have an opening next to Derrick Johnson at inside linebacker. Jordan, who also visited the Bengals as a free agent, could join the recently signed Zac Diles is a competition for that job.’   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
