The Kansas City Chiefs have signed veteran Akeem Jordan to provide depth and push for playing time alongside middle linebacker Derrick Johnson.
The team announced the move in a statement Monday.
Jordan has appeared in 82 games with 34 starts in six seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles, where current Chiefs coach Andy Reid had been in charge until he was fired this offseason.
Jordan has made 184 tackles, two interceptions and forced two turnovers in his career.
The Chiefs have also signed former Titans linebacker Zac Diles, who played at Kansas State, to help shore up the linebacker position. Kansas City could also attempt to fill one of the biggest voids in its defense through the draft.

Pick a site and in their updated mock draft the Kansas City Chiefs are selecting Luke Joeckel, but one NFL writer believes differently.

Peter King of SI.com can’t imagine the Kansas City Chiefs selecting anyone but either Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher or Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick in next week’s draft.
