Report: Akeem Jordan agrees to deal with Chiefs

He might have traded in Eagles green for Chiefs red, but Andy Reid just can’t quit Akeem Jordan.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the former Eagles linebacker has agreed to a one-year deal to join Reid in Kansas City. Jordan spent the last six years playing for Reid in Philadelphia after making the team as an undrafted free agent in 2007.

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.

Jordan would be the second player from the 2012 Eagles to wind up joining Reid in his new digs. Wide receiver Mardy Gilyard also played for Philly in Reid’s last season before signing with the Chiefs as a free agent.

    When I first saw the headline I was pretty sure it was going to be the Browns.

    Absolutely no loss to The Eagles. Eagles had the worst Linebackers in all Pro Football 2 years.

    One of the most staggeringly mediocre players you’ll ever see KC. Not good enough to play, not bad enough to cut. Too old too Rock n Roll, Too young too die…

    Akeem Jordan was not as bad as people say,he was a reliable 2nd team LB and a good special teamer.

    Akeem Jordon is tried and proven he will have a breakout year in KC. I’m glad he’s not in Philly
