The youngest of the three Rodgers boys, Jordan, was a three-star quarterback, per Rivals, coming out of high school. Like Aaron, he attended Pleasant Valley in Chico. Jordan would attend Butte College for two years before transferring to Vanderbilt for his junior and senior seasons.

After a red shirt in 2010, Rodgers started 25 games in the next two seasons with mixed results. As a senior, he threw 15 touchdowns against just five interceptions, leading the Commodores to a 9-4 record.

Jordan went undrafted in 2013, and after practice squad stints with several teams, he retired earlier in 2015 and is pursuing a career in broadcasting.

Jordan once blasted the Vanderbilt program for the way it treats its former players.
