49ers evaluating D-linemen Ziggy Ansah and Dion Jordan, per reports

Aug 4, 2020 at 9:45 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers are doing their due diligence when it comes to potentially adding some edge-rusher depth. The team is evaluating two defenders — former Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks pass rusher Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah and former Miami Dolphins, Seahawks, and Oakland Raiders defensive end Dion Jordan — according to reports from NFL Network and ESPN.

As Rapoport states in his report, nothing is done, but the 49ers are getting a good look at Ansah, who is going through physical and COVID-19 testing at the team's facility. Jordan is also there today, according to Schefter.

Ansah appeared in 11 games with one start for the Seahawks last season, recording 18 tackles, 2.5 sacks, eight quarterback hits, two passes defended, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. He recorded 28.5 sacks between 2015 and 2017 with the Lions.

Jordan recorded five tackles, two sacks, two quarterback hits, and a pass defense through seven games last year with the Oakland Raiders. He has 10.5 career sacks through five NFL seasons, not counting 2015 when he was suspended for the entire season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substance policy.

San Francisco also hosted defensive lineman Damontre Moore for a visit last week.
