It would appear as though the Bengals are focused are solidifying their linebacker depth in the next couple of weeks, either through free agency, or in the NFL Draft. Over the past week, they had several linebackers in for a visit, and one of them was former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan, who visited with the Bengals on Tuesday.
As it turns out, he’s already signed a deal, but it was with a team other than the Bengals:
In six NFL seasons, Jordan has recorded 262 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and seven pass deflections.
Last season, he started seven games last season for the Eagles, playing in 14, and had 44 tackles and two forced fumbles. In 342 snaps last year, he finished with a -1.7 grade by Pro Football Focus.
