Redskins sign free agent linebacker Akeem Jordan
MAR 19, 2014 10:09a ET
Jordan signed his contract Wednesday, making him the third inside linebacker with special teams experience that the Redskins have added in free agency. Darryl Sharpton and Adam Hayward agreed to deals last week.
Undrafted out of James Madison, Jordan played six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before spending last year with the Kansas City Chiefs. He's started 44 games over seven seasons, including 10 in 2013.
Special teams was a priority after the Redskins ranked last by far in the NFL in punt coverage last year.
