Dion Jordan signs RFA tender
The Seahawks have said goodbye to several defensive players this offseason, but they will have defensive end Dion Jordan back for the 2018 season.

I’m struggling on that, he said. I need to get a hit. I need to practice more. I don’t know what’s going on.
His pitching, though, was outstanding.
