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.
So proud to be a Jacksonville Jaguar. Opportunity is all I can ask for. Excited to get back on the field
