Jordan Edward Rodgers (born August 30, 1988) is an American sports commentator and former college and professional American football quarterback. Rodgers signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2013, and also played on practice and preseason squads for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins, as well as the BC Lions in the Canadian Football League. He is the brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers was born in Chico, California, and raised there with eldest brother Luke and their middle brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers attended Pleasant Valley High School in Chico, where he started at quarterback and led the team to an 8-3-1 record as a senior while also lettering in basketball and track.
After completing high school, he attended and played quarterback at Butte College. At Butte, he was the backup quarterback and helped the team earn the 2008 junior college national title with a 12-0 record. The following year as a starter, he broke the school record for total offense, passing for 2,219 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also earned academic honors.
In 2011, he began the season as the second-team quarterback and finished the season with seven starts. He completed 108 passes in 216 attempts for 1,524 yards and nine passing touchdowns. He was also the team's second-leading rusher with 420 yards on 117 carries.
In 2012, he was named offensive co-captain. He started 11 games, becoming the first quarterback to lead the Commodores to back-to-back bowl appearances and a 9-4 record. His quarterback statistics were among the best in Vanderbilt history, with 191 completions, 2,539 yards and 15 touchdowns, completing 59.9 percent of his passes. Rodgers also threw for two touchdowns and ran for one in the team's win over North Carolina State in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, which was the team's seventh consecutive win to end the season. His 2012 statistics rank #8 in the school's single season leaders.
Rodgers was an instrumental part of a SEC record while playing for the Commodores, serving as the primary quarterback for career SEC leading wide receiver Jordan Matthews. Once Rodgers became the starting quarterback in 2011, Matthews production rapidly increased. In 2012, the two combined for 90 completions in a season where Matthews set the school record for receiving yards in a season with 1,323, a record he would break again the following year.
Despite playing only two seasons at Vanderbilt, he currently ranks 7th in school history in career total offense. He finished his career with 299 completions, 4,063 passing yards and 24 touchdown passes. His honors include the 2010, 2011 and 2012 SEC Academic Honor Roll and the 2012 Unitas Award Watch List.
His record as a starter was 11-8, with victories over fellow SEC teams Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Auburn, and Mississippi.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Rodgers to the team's practice squad on October 7, 2013 after releasing quarterback Josh Freeman. He remained on the practice squad for the remainder of the season as Mike Glennon became the starter and Dan Orlovsky the backup. Jordan was cut by the Buccaneers on February 10, 2014.
Rodgers was a contestant and the eventual winner on season 12 of The Bachelorette, starring Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher which aired from May-August 2016.  Rodgers proposed, and as of September 2019, the two remain engaged.
Beginning in July 2019, Rodgers and Fletcher hosted the CNBC reality show Cash Pad. A combination of house flipping and investment shows, the hosts partner with homeowners hoping to turn their properties into ideal short-term rentals.
