Mike Jordan posted a message on Twitter Saturday to indicate he’s been released by the Los Angeles Rams.
Despite placing the franchise tag on Trumaine Johnson for the second year in a row, cornerback was still an interesting position to keep an eye on for the Los Angeles Rams heading into the preseason. Early on, Mike Jordan was a name that stood out for the Rams on defense when seeing how effective he was, but unfortunately it looks like the team has different plans for the 2017 NFL season.
On Saturday, Jordan posted a message on Twitter to share the news of his release, as the cornerback thanked the organization for the opportunity. After signing with the practice squad last season, Jordan was eventually promoted to the active roster in November, and appeared in five games for Los Angeles.
Believe it or not, there were times during the preseason when Jordan seemed to be a lock to make the roster when looking at some of the other cornerbacks he was competing with. But once again, this is the perfect example of how no jobs in the NFL are guaranteed, and based off his play at times in the preseason, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Jordan expressed interest from a few teams.
As for some of the other cuts by the Rams, it will be interesting to see what other moves are made at cornerback, as teams have until 4:00 p.m. Saturday to have their rosters trimmed down to 53 players. Unfortunately for Jordan and Aaron Green, the two were unfortunately part of the early cuts after seeming to be strong candidates to earn a spot for Los Angeles a few weeks ago.
