Dion Jordan will move forward with his second NFL employer. The Seahawks defensive end signed his RFA tender and is now under contract for the 2018 season.
He’ll move back into the picture for the Seahawks as they construct a defensive line that will not include Michael Bennett and may well be without Cliff Avril as well.
Although Jordan only played in five games last season, starting none, the former No. 3 overall pick showed promise. He registered four sacks and earned an 83.6 grade from Pro Football Focus. He will now be part of an edge defender core that houses Barkevious Mingo, who also underwhelmed as a top-10 pick from 2013, and one that could be centered around Frank Clark.
The Seahawks will begin their offseason program Monday.
