Seahawks Re-Sign RFA DE Dion Jordan


Seahawks restricted free agent DE Dion Jordan officially signed his one-year tender on Thursday for the 2018 season.

Seattle placed an original-round restricted tender on Jordan, which will cost them around $1.9 million for the 2018 season.

Jordan, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2010. He had two years remaining on his four-year, $20.572 million rookie contract when the Dolphins cut him loose.

The Dolphins traded up to No. 3 overall to select Jordan, but he hasn’t come anywhere close to living up to his draft status and has been suspended twice since entering the NFL for performance-enhancing drug violations and undergone two knee surgeries.

The Seahawks signed him to a one-year, $640,000 contract last offseason and placed him on the NFI list before activating him in November.

In 2017, Jordan appeared in five games for Seattle and recorded 18 total tackles, four sacks, and one forced fumble.
