Perhaps in an attempt to get out of his brother’s shadow with his Canadian Football League career over, Jordan Rodgers will be one of the contestants on the 12th season of The Bachelorette, per Nicholas Hautman of Us Weekly.
Rodgers, the younger brother of two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, won't be the first sibling of a prominent quarterback to appear on the show.
Josh Murray, who won The Bachelorette in 2014, is the brother of former Georgia Bulldogs star Aaron Murray.
The younger Rodgers played two seasons at Vanderbilt and started his senior year, winning his final six games to lead the Commodores to their second straight bowl game for the first time in school history. That year, he threw for 2,539 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions.
After college, Rodgers spent 12 months on the practices squads of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins. He then spent the 2014 season with the CFL’s B.C. Lions before retiring in May.
His brother is dating Hollywood superstar Olivia Munn, and perhaps he’ll have some pull as a former quarterback.
