Dion Jordan is moving back to the Pacific Northwest to get a fresh start.
The former No. 3 overall pick agreed to terms Tuesday with the Seattle Seahawks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source involved in the deal.
For Seattle, it’s a swing at an athletic pass rusher with little risk. Jordan owns the athleticism to play either edge rusher or SAM linebacker in Pete Carroll’s defense.
Jordan entered the NFL in 2013 from Oregon as an enticing pass rusher who could cover in space. In his first two seasons, he compiled three sacks and 39 tackles in 26 games of limited duty.
Jordan possesses the twitchy athleticism that gets scouts geeked for prospects, but has yet to fully put it together as a pro. If he can stay healthy and off the suspension list, Jordan could prove to be an intriguing rotational player in sub-packages.
