Jordan has only played for Andy Reid (in both Philadelphia and Kansas City), but will add depth and a special teams presence. He will add to the middle linebacker competition...

Wilson adds that Jordan reportedly has interest from “multiple teams.“
Jordan is currently visiting the Bengals and talks between the two sides are believed to be going well.
The Bengals could probably offer him more playing time than the Eagles, but it sounds...

Jordan had not been getting much attention from the media throughout the position battle, but he must have gotten the attention of the coaching staff. Akeem was in competition with Brian Rolle for the position. Brian Rolle is a second year linebacker out of Ohio...
