Chiefs Add Another Linebacker

For the second time in the last five days, the Chiefs have increased their roster at linebacker.

A few days ago it was Zac Diles. On Sunday it was Akeem Jordan, who played all three linebacker spots in the 4-3 defensive scheme the Philadelphia Eagles ran under head coach Andy Reid. The 6-1, 226-pound native of Virginia has appeared in 82 games with 34 starts, along with 3 games in the playoffs.

With the Eagles, he contributed 257 total tackles, 1 sack and 2 interceptions. He was also a key special teams performer, as he totaled 101 tackles in six seasons, including 15 last year.

Jordan joined the Eagles in 2007 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of James Madison. While in college, he was part of a national championship team as a sophomore, as JMU beat Montana in 2004. In his senior season, he finished second in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award that’s given each year to the best defensive player in the 1-AA or FCS classification.

He grew up in Harrisonburg, Virginia and will be 28 in August.
