Aaron Rodgers’ brother lands with Jaguars

Despite having their pick of the litter, the Jaguars chose not to draft any quarterbacks from this year’s class.

But they did take a certain flier.

According to NFL.com, the Jags signed Aaron Rodgers‘ little brother, Jordan, as a priority undrafted free agent.

The 6-foot-1 Rodgers, a JUCO transfer, capped off a two-year career at Vanderbilt in which he completed 55.9 percent of his passes, threw 24 touchdowns, 19 touchdowns, and rushed for six scores.

Although Rodgers has the obvious bloodline connection, there’s a reason (or two) he went undrafted. His decision making and arm strength are reportedly considered subpar by scouts, making him, as of now, nothing more than a developmental prospect.

Rodgers is no lock to make the team with fellow undrafted signal-caller Matt Scott also coming aboard. However, he’ll be given every opportunity to earn a roster spot, and is an intriguing project for Jacksonville offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch to work with.

      What people need to realize is that this guy’s has a huge chip on his shoulder. He went the exact same route as his brother and ended up at Vanderbilt. His arm will improve, as he is still working on getting his arm stronger after having surgery. His work-ethic is ridiculous and it will be interesting to see how good he can become.
