Videos Of Jordan Rodgers Playing Football Prove 'The Bachelorette' Contestant Was A Star
While it's true that the majority of Monday night's episode of The Bachelorette focused on Chad and his ever-growing anger issues, there were still a few tender moments to found throughout the two-hour segment, one of which includes Jordan opening up to JoJo on The Bachelorette and sharing details about his relationship with his ex-girlfriend. You could definitely tell his words resonated with JoJo and brought them closer together. Clearly, this guy is going to be sticking around for quite some time, unlike Chad who can't possibly last much longer. (Right?) Speaking of which, even Jordan couldn't escape from Chad's wrath, who made a wisecrack about his washed up football career. But after watching multiple videos of Jordan Rodgers playing football, I can assure you that is not the case at all.
Sure, he may not have had as successful of a career as his NFL superstar brother, Aaron Rodgers, but his athletic background in the sport is certainly nothing to scoff at either. Jordan played for a variety of high-profile teams including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, BC Lions, and, of course, his time as the reigning quarterback at Vanderbilt University during his college years. Suffice to say, this guy is more than comfortable with being in the spotlight and working well under pressure — two things that are vital to have on this reality series. If you don't believe me, just see him in action for yourself...
In this reel of Jordan's Vanderbilt highlights we see him (No. 11) not only use that impressive arm of his, but also take matters into his own hands and make a variety of different touchdowns. Granted, I'm no football expert by any means, but these segments alone are enough to convince me of this guy's skills. Not to mention that he seems to have a great rapport with his fellow teammates, which could help to indicate what kind of partner he'd be like for JoJo.
And if you think Jordan doesn't have what it takes to handle the stress that comes with having thousands upon thousands of eyes on you, then think again. In this moment, we see Jordan make a game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver Chris Boyd with only 52 seconds left on the clock. It's an epic moment that even Jordan himself revealed he'll "never forget" on social media.
And then, of course, there's this little gem:
OK, so technically I realize that this isn't him actually playing football, but come on. This is insanely impressive and part of his workout regime, so I'd say that counts. Either way, Jordan shouldn't let Chad's cruel words go to his head. He's had a football career any athlete should be proud of. And if he also has the talent of making JoJo happy, then that's all that really matters.
