Aaron Rodgers is the No. 1 player in the NFL, but his little brother is just trying to get somewhere in the top 2,880. That’s the number of jobs available in the NFL at a time when the 32 teams have 90-man rosters, and Jordan Rodgers has fallen short of making the Jaguars’ 90-man roster for the start of training camp.
The Jaguars announced today that they have released Rodgers, a quarterback they signed as an undrafted free agent in April.
Jordan Rodgers had sports hernia surgery in May and wasn’t healthy for Organized Team Activities, so he never had an opportunity to do much of anything in Jacksonville.
As a senior at Vanderbilt last season, Rodgers completed 191 of 319 passes for 2,539 yards, with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. Now he’ll just have to hope one of the 31 other NFL teams think he’s good enough for a spot on a 90-man roster.
