A colossal bust after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2013 draft by the Miami Dolphins, Dion Jordan is scratching and clawing his way back to relevance. In a reserve role with the Seattle Seahawks over the last two seasons, Jordan may have found his niche. If the Buccaneers were to sign him it would be as nothing more than a depth piece while Spence or Nassib would carry the load opposite Barrett.
Jordan has only tallied a career total of eight and a half sacks over his five year career, but nearly half of them came in 2017. After missing the entire 2015 season due to violating the league’s substance abuse policy, Jordan signed with Seattle with nothing to lose and recorded four sacks and five quarterback hits in a rotational role in five games.
Last year Jordan managed only a sack and a half, three tackles for loss, and six quarterback hits in 12 games for the Seahawks, three of which he started. The contract for Jordan will be cheap, and the Buccaneers are desperate for depth; what is there to lose by giving him a few sheckles to play in Tampa Bay for the year?
