Dion Jordan is starting over in Seattle.

The former Dolphins defensive end and 2013 draft bust has agreed to a contract with the Seahawks, according to multiple reports. USA Today first reported the move Tuesday morning.

Jordan was released by the Dolphins on March 31 following a failed physical and freed up $3.225 million in salary-cap space for the team in 2017.

Ron Brooks Jersey Miami moved up nine spots to select the former Oregon star with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, though Jordan hasn’t played in more than two years because of multiple suspensions for violating the leagues substance abuse policy.

Jordan, who turned 27 last month, had three sacks and 39 tackles in 26 games over his first two seasons. He hasn’t seen action since the 2014 season but will attempt to revive his career in his return to the Pacific Northwest. This is cheating, as the Patriots first draft day trade came the day before the first round opened. But the teams willingness to ship out the 78th overall pick in 2003 — originally acquired in a trade for veteran defensive back Tebucky Jones — would net it Bengals running back Corey Dillon in 2004.

Dillon wouldnt be the only domino set in 2003 to fall the following year. Trading the 19th pick (Kyle Boller) to the Ravens would net All-Pro defensive tackle Vince Wilfork 12 months later, along with starters Eugene Wilson and Dan Klecko. The Pats also moved up in the first round for the second year in a row, albeit not by much. They sent the No. 14 pick (Michael Haynes) and the No. 193 (Marques Ogden) to the Bears to select Ty Warren, who would spend the next seven seasons as a fixture on New Englands defensive line.
