49ers To Sign Dion Jordan

The 49ers are expected to sign Dion Jordan, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Terms of the deal are not yet known.

Jordan’s NFL career has taken some odd turns, to say the least. After being selected No. 3 overall by the Dolphins, Jordan did little to justify his pre-draft hype. After some underwhelming seasons, missed seasons, and a number of suspensions, Jordan found his way to the Seahawks in 2017. In 2018, he showed some promise as a rotational piece, and he parlayed that into a one-year deal with the Raiders. Now, instead of moving to Vegas, he’ll stay in California and switch conferences.

Jordan met with the Niners on Tuesday and it didn’t take long for a deal to come together. The league has largely discouraged teams from meetings and workouts during the pandemic, so most visits in recent weeks have led to deals.

Jordan, who registered a pair of sacks in seven games last year, will slot behind Arik Armstead and Nick Bosa in SF’s edge rushing corps.

    If Jordan can play like he did in Seattle, this will be a good signing. Definitely underwhelming as a top five pick, Jordan could be fine as a rotational piece behind the regular starters. I was happy to see him contribute finally with the Seahawks, even if it wasn’t what you hoped for from a top five pick. But that doesn’t mean that Jordan can not be useful. After all, San Fran didn’t draft him, so they weren’t the ones who blew the pick. They may be the ones to benefit, in whatever way that happens.

    I’m not sure why NFL teams continue to reward players with contracts that repeatedly get suspended for failing drug tests. Also, the guy can never stay healthy. Probably the top Dolphin’s draft bust in the franchise history. Wow, played descent for Seattle for 7 games!! Great signing 49ers!
