In 2012, Jordan was an outside linebacker in Philadelphia’s 4-3 scheme. He wasn’t well suited for the role and earned a -1.7 grade from Pro Football Focus. He’ll most likely be moved inside in Kansas City and should get a look for the vacancy next to Derrick Johnson. In addition to another recent linebacker signing, the Chiefs now have excellent depth at that position. It’s quite possible that they may have even found a replacement for the late Jovan Belcher.
