The San Francisco 49ers add depth to their defensive line.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Niners are expected to sign Dion Jordan, per source informed of the decision.
Jordan was one last choice in the first round to wash out Miami. He spent two seasons in Seattle strengthening his reputation and playing seven games for the Oakland Raiders in 2019.
Jordan served a ten-match suspension last season for an Adderall offense before joining the Raiders for the final seven inclines. He put together two sacks and five tackles in 1
Jordan joins a star-studded Niners defensive line that needed speed depth behind Dee Ford. The 49ers also brought in free agent Ezekiel Ansah for a physical as well on Tuesday but appear to have chosen Jordan. Rapoport added the 49ers doctors passed Ansah on his physical showing that he is healthy after a year injury from shoulder problems.
The 30-year-old pass rusher should see time as a rotating edge defender who can earn more snaps if he proves to be potent in limited use. During a season where depth will play a key role, a player with Jordan’s talent – injuries and multiple tensions nonetheless – could prove crucial for a playoff team.
