Linebacker Akeem Jordan, who was shown interest by a few teams during the free agency period, has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Chiefs with a minimum salary benefit and a $20,000 signing bonus, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Jordan has spent his entire six-year career with the Eagles, where he has mostly been a part-time starter (starting 14 of 29 games in the past two seasons, averaging 23 tackles).

Jordan reportedly was pursued by his old team, the Eagles, and the Bengals during free agency. But he joined new defensive Chiefs acquisitions cornerback Sean Smith, linebacker Zac Diles, defensive end Mike DeVito, and cornerback Dunta Robinson.

Jordan could compete with Diles for one of the starting inside linebacker jobs next to Derrick Johnson, the position that the late Jovan Belcher played last season.
