The Oakland Raiders signed defensive end Dion Jordan and safety D.J. Swearinger on Saturday.

Jordan, 29, was suspended for the first 10 games this season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy. Oakland just completed its 10th week of the season and Jordan is already listed on the active roster.

Jordan, the third overall pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, has appeared in 43 games (just four starts) with the Dolphins (2013-14) and Seattle Seahawks (2017-18). He has 86 career tackles and 8.5 sacks.

Jordan was suspended for the first four games in 2014 and again for the entire 2015 season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He was conditionally reinstated in 2016 but sat out the entire season.

Swearinger, 28, started the first four games for Arizona this season, tallying 28 tackles before being released on Sept. 30.

Swearinger was a second-round pick by the Texans in 2013 and played for Houston for two seasons (2013-14). He played for Arizona during the 2015 and 2016 seasons and had stints with Tampa Bay (2015) and Washington (2017-18). He was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals last December after being cut by the Redskins.

In 94 games (70 starts) over his seven-year career, Swearinger has recorded 386 tackles (297 solo) and 14 interceptions.

In corresponding transactions, the Raiders waived linebacker Quentin Poling and placed safety Karl Joseph (knee) on injured reserve.
