01:03 PM ET 04.09 | Free agent linebacker Akeem Jordan will visit the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. Jordan hasn't been especially active this offseason, but with most of the big names gone, he should be able to find a team soon. The fit with the Bengals makes sense at this point, as well. Jordan has been a key contributor on special teams since the Philadelphia Eagles brought him in as an undrafted free agent in 2007. With Dan Skuta signing with the San Francisco 49ers, the Bengals have a linebacker-shaped hole on their coverage units, which could definitely be filled by Jordan. On defense, Jordan offers key depth at multiple linebacker positions. He made seven starts in 2012 and had 44 tackles with two forced fumbles in 14 games during the season.

Yup, stealth LB, they are invisable, problem is they kept running into each other cause they couldn't see them.

Six years in Philadelphia...

Not much of a resume.

That's what I was thinking, too. Hope teams aren't expecting much from Jordan, because he's probably not gonna produce a whole lot.

No, Cowboys fan. This is the main reason why you hate DeSean Jackson...



Although if you had been a Giants fan I would have agreed.
