The Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" has disbanded. The team's iconic defensive core is in tatters. But as the 2018 season approaches, even more unfortunate news has emerged-- defensive end Dion Jordan will be out for up to eight weeks as he recovers from knee surgery.

The former Miami Dolphins' first-round pick has had quite a tumultuous career, to say nothing of his time growing up. He'll have every chance to make it back in time for the preseason, but yet another setback on D can't inspire confidence among the Seattle faithful.

In his 2017 season with the Hawks, Jordan produced some solid numbers, as he was part of a combined 18 tackles while notching 4 sacks, and a forced fumble.


Losing Jordan for this period of time certainly doesn't help the Seahawks, as they are already lacking in key areas on defense, but in the long term, the situation could be worse.
