Linebacker Akeem Jordan played for Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City for the first seven years of his NFL career, but the partnership will not continue into a eighth season.
The Redskins announced Wednesday morning that they have signed Jordan as a free agent. Jordan is the third linebacker to join the Redskins this offseason along with Adam Hayward and Darryl Sharpton.
Jordan made the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2007 and went on to start 34 games for the team over six seasons before moving on to Kansas City along with Reid for the 2013 season. Jordan made 10 starts in Kansas City, making 67 tackles and forcing two fumbles while helping the team earn a playoff bid.
The Redskins re-signed Perry Riley and he’s almost certain to man one inside linebacker spot come next season. Sharpton and Jordan should be in the mix for the other spot once the Redskins get back on the field.
