Share This Story
PHILADELPHIA (AP)Restricted free agent linebacker Akeem Jordan will return to the Philadelphia Eagles next season after signing a one-year tender offer.
Jordan started 10 games for the Eagles last season, recording 82 tackles and two interceptions. He took a role on the starting defense midway through the 2008 season and held it until being sidelined for four weeks with a knee injury last season.
Jordan is likely to resume his role as the Eagles' starting weakside linebacker following the release of Will Witherspoon.
The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Jordan joined the Eagles as a rookie free agent out of James Madison in 2007.
