ESPN 980 Washington reports the Redskins and free agent ILB Akeem Jordan have "mutual interest."

Akeem Jordan started alongside ILB Derrick Johnson in Chiefs OTAs Tuesday after running with the first-team defense in voluntary workouts.

He's the mediocre linebacker coach Andy Reid just can't quit. "The thing you get with Akeem is he's a smart football player," Reid said. "He hasn't played in the 3-4, but he gives you the trust that he can do that. He doesn't make a lot of mistakes." Best suited for a reserve/special teams role, Jordan is supposedly competing with fourth-rounder Nico Johnson and Zac Diles, but the job is his to lose.

Free agent LB Akeem Jordan is visiting the Bengals Tuesday.

It's the first known interest Jordan has attracted on the open market. The former undrafted free agent was often overused by the Eagles, as he started 27 games over the last four seasons. Ideally, the undersized Jordan is depth at outside linebacker and a core special teamer.

Jordan has been a valuable role player for the Eagles since 2007, but has never emerged as a full-time starter, and will turn 27 in August. Jordan shouldn't attract interest as a starter on the open market.
