Eagles LB Akeem Jordan Replaces Brian Rolle On First Team
The Eagles shook up their lineup on Sunday when coach Andy Reid said Akeem Jordan will replace Brian Rolle at weak-side linebacker when the Eagles close out the NFL preseason on Thursday night against the Jets.
Rolle won the job toward the end of last year, his rookie season, and he came into the spring minicamps and then training camp as the starter. But he never really grabbed hold of the job during camp and then struggled in the last two preseason games, so Reid decided to make a change.
Jordan has played all three linebacker positions in his five seasons with the Eagles and he's started 27 games since joining the Eagles as an undrafted free agent from James Madison.
