Aaron Rodgers has become a household name in the NFL over the years thanks to his beautiful sayings and superb accuracy. But did you know that he actually has a younger brother who also played professional football?
We’re talking about none other than Jordan Rodgers. Aaron’s younger brother is widely known for appearing on reality TV shows ‘The Bachelorette’ back in 2016. A winner like his brother, Jordan won the show and recently ended his relationship with real estate mogul Jojo Fletcher.
While this is information you may already know about the social media star, let’s take a look at some interesting facts about Jordan Rodgers that you may not have known.
Jordan Rodgers plays college football for Vanderbilt
Like his brother Aaron, Jordan also pursued football during his college days. The former midfielder attended Butte College for two years before receiving a scholarship to Vanderbilt.
He attended the school for two years and even started their football program as a starting midfielder.
Despite only attending Vanderbilt for two years, he made it to the top 10 in many categories of passes and total offenses.
He had a cameo in the comedy Pitch Perfect 2
Refresh your memory a bit. Remember when the cast of Pitch Perfect 2 was randomly assigned to have a live performance involving the Green Bay Packers? Yes, Jordan Rodgers was part of that entourage. And so is Packers star David Bakhtiari!
While Jordan didn’t have any dialogue, he actually sang with the other Packers players for this scene. His team sang “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child.
He signed with multiple NFL franchises before calling it off his career.
Like Aaron, Jordan always had something in him to be a professional soccer player. While he hasn’t improved, the quarterback was signed as a practice player with the Jaguars, Buccaneers and Dolphins for parts of the 2013-14 NFL campaign.
He then joined the BC Lions franchise’s CFL training team in 2015 before finally calling it the moment in hopes of making a career outside of football. Jordan, though, committed until the very end when an article by thepostgame.com recounted his struggles:
“I think I’ve come further than any human can for professional football. I’ve traveled from Miami, Florida, to Vancouver, Canada. There aren’t many places that far apart.”
