PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – According to Eagles reporter Bob Grotz, the Eagles offered a second-round pick and Brandon Graham to the Miami Dolphins for pass rushing linebacker and former Oregon Duck, Dion Jordan.
Jordan was selected third overall by the Dolphins in last year’s draft, but recorded only 26 tackles and two sacks in 16 games as a rookie playing the Dolphins’ 4-3 system. The Eagles are in need of an outside linebacker pass rusher and Jordan would seemingly fit much better in Billy Davis’ 3-4 defensive scheme.
If the Eagles acquired Jordan, they would be forced to pick up the remainder of his large guaranteed rookie deal, which was a four year deal worth $20.572 million.
