49ers' Dion Jordan: Won't face Cardinals

The 30-year-old hasn't sat out since Week 2, but this development means defensive end depth is going to be depleted behind starters Arik Armstead and Kerry Hyder.... See More ... See Less

Jordan now has a sack in back-to-back contests after only recording one sack through the first 12 weeks of the season. Sunday also marked Jordan's highest single-game snap count of the year. Should he keep up this high level of play, look for the high rep count to remain.... See More ... See Less

Dion Jordan: Released by 49ers
The 49ers released Jordan on Saturday.

Jordan agreed Friday with the 49ers on a one-year contract, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Joining a team that already has Nick Bosa, Dee Ford and Arik Armstead at defensive end, Jordan will merely be competing for a roster spot. The No. 3 overall pick from the 2013 NFL Draft has managed only 10.5 sacks and 50 NFL appearances to date, but he did notch a pair of sacks while playing for the Raiders over the final seven weeks of last season. Jordan turned 30 in March.... See More ... See Less

Dion Jordan: Handed 10-game suspension
Jordan was suspended for 10 games for a violation of the NFL's PED policy, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Jordan, who is currently unsigned, violated the policy when he tested positive for Adderall after his therapeutic use exemption expired. The defensive end is coming off a rough 2018 campaign with Seattle, and the 10-game suspension, for which he has already lost an appeal, is certainly not going to do him any favors regarding his future in the league....

Seahawks' Dion Jordan: Doesn't live up to expectations
Jordan recorded 22 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass breakup in 2018.
Jordan sat out for four games this season, and he averaged just 25 defensive snaps in the 12 games -- the most he's suited up for since his 2013 rookie campaign.
