Pats Sign Jordan

The Patriots signed former Jets and Raiders running back LaMont Jordan to a one year contract today. He had been released by the Raiders after contract and depth chart issues earlier this year. Jordan is one of those little big guys (5-10, 230) who can pound the football inside and is also an excellent receiver. When he was on the Jets, he always had decent games against the Patriots and he wasn't bad with the Raiders either. Due to injury issues over the last two seasons, he has only played in 21 out of a possible 32 games (with 15 starts).

Well, who knows, this could be a big signing and Jordan could be an impact player this season or he could be cut before the first preseason game but either way their is no downside to giving him a chance to show the Pats if he still has anything inthe tank.

Barring injury, the Patriots should enter the season with Laurence Maroney, Sammy Morris, Jordan, Kevin Faulk and Heath Evans.
