Andy Reid adds Akeem Jordan to the Chiefs

Nick Laham

Typically, when a former coach or coordinator leaves a team after a decent amount of time, they develop players that become "their guys." Rex Ryan had Bart Scott, Chuck Pagano has Cory Redding, Eric Mangini had Abram Elam, Todd Haley had Leonard Pope (been with him at every spot since he was drafted) and so on. Now, Andy Reid has established that Akeem Jordan is one of "his guys." Per Aaron Wilson of Fox Sports, Jordan and the Chiefs have reached an agreement on a contract.

Jordan is only the second former Eagle to join the funky bunch in Kansas City (8-game special teamer, Mardy Gilyard, joined the gang a few weeks ago). He has played his entire six-year career for Reid in Philadelphia, so obviously there is a relationship. Jordan will likely be a backup inside linebacker and a key special teams player for the Chiefs.

Jordan visited the Bengals earlier this week and had reportedly been offered a deal by the Eagles to return to the team. In the end, it seems Jordan chose to stick with his coach and not the team played for his entire career.
