Chiefs add to linebacking crew

By Bill Williamson

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to give themselves options at inside linebacker.

The team reportedly finalized a deal for linebacker Akeem Jordan on Monday. He played six years in Philadelphia for new Kansas City coach Andy Reid. He was a part-time starter the past two years.

Along with Zac Diles, who signed last week, Jordan will compete for a starting spot at an inside linebacker spot. At worst, both players will be backups and special-teamers. The Chiefs could also potentially seek help at the position in the draft and later in the offseason.
