The Seahawks are picking up the scraps of the Miami Dolphins and figure to get some good work out of them the rest of the year.
Just a few days after Dion Jordan made his long-delayed season debut, the Seahawks brought back former Legion of Boom original Byron Maxwell (2011 sixth-rounder).
Jordan is another case of the Seahawks’ patience seemingly paying off. Nurtured back by the Seahawks after missing two and a half years due to a suspension and a knee injury, Jordan got off to a great start in Arizona last Thursday — notching a sack and three quarterback hits. He could come in very handy as the Hawks play without Cliff Avril and Malik McDowell and with a bunch of banged-up linemen — Michael Bennett, Sheldon Richardson, Frank Clark, Marcus Smith, Jarran Reed — down the stretch.
“He’s got a big upside now,” Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN on Monday. “He is a big, physical tough guy with a lot to prove.”
Assuming Jordan stays healthy and plays well enough, the Hawks could easily retain him in 2018. Jordan will be a restricted free agent, meaning the Seahawks will have the right to keep him via tender.
