LISTEN: What are the Seahawks getting in Dion Jordan?

The Seahawks have reportedly added to their defensive-line depth with a reclamation project.

USA Today’s Tom Pelissero tweeted early Tuesday morning that Seattle has agreed to terms with former Dolphins pass rusher Dion Jordan, who hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2014.

The Seahawks have not announced the move.

The terms haven’t been revealed, but it’s presumably a short-term, low-risk deal for Seattle given Jordan’s track record, which includes three suspensions and only three career sacks since he entered the league as the No. 3 overall pick in 2013.

After appearing in all 16 games his rookie year, Jordan, 27, was suspended for the first two games of the 2014 season because of a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. He was then suspended four more games that year for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, and when diluted sample reportedly triggered another violation of the substance-abuse policy in April of 2015, Jordan was suspended for that entire season.

After being reinstated following the one-year suspension, Jordan didn’t play in 2016 as he dealt with a knee injury. Miami waived him last month with a failed-physical designation.

Jordan has played in only 26 career games, recording three sacks and 39 tackles. He’s listed at 6 feet 6 and 275 pounds.

For what it’s worth, Jordan’s signing means Seattle now has two of the top three picks from the 2013 draft. The other is offensive lineman Luke Joeckle, who was chosen second overall that year.
