Akeem Jordan is a quality player on the Eagles' 53-man roster. He is a good teammate who has excelled on special teams and has also played well as an outside linebacker at times. Having said that, he will be pushed for his starting job this season.
Like middle linebacker, strong side linebacker will have a fresh face this season. Neither position has much experience within the Eagles' roster and neither position had much stability last season.
Most of the quality free-agent linebackers left are all middle or weak-side linebackers, so I would expect the Eagles to select a strong-side linebacker in the second or third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Keenan Robinson of Texas is a good option in the draft. He should still be there in the third round and is a player that played exceptionally well at times. He provides good coverage and is very physical against the run. His only major weakness is a lack of consistency at the college level.
Jo-Lonn Dunbar is the best fit for the Eagles at strong-side in free agency. He played both middle and outside linebacker in 2011 for the New Orleans Saints. He is a little bit undersized, but excelled at middle linebacker last season in the Saints' 4-3 defense. There's no reason why he couldn't excel as an outside linebacker in the Eagles' 4-3 defense this season.
Akeem Jordan should get demoted back to the bench and on special teams this season. He isn't anything more than a nice player. He can play well in a couple spot starts, but he isn't the guy you want as your full-time starter.
