Jordan was just another career backup until finally getting a chance to shine with the Raiders in 2005. After seeing him serve as a viable backup to Curtis Martin with the Jets for four seasons, the Raiders gave Jordan a five-year deal worth $27.5 million. He immediately repaid their faith in him by rushing for over 1,000 yards and racking up over 500 yards receiving.
But that would be as good as it got for Jordan. He tore up his knee midway through the 2006 season and suffered another injury in 2007 that caused him to lose his starting spot. The Raiders released him with two years left on his five-year contract and stints with the Patriots and Broncos couldn’t get his career back on track. Jordan spent nine years in the NFL, but only one was memorable. He coached in the AAF in 2019 and also owns a restaurant.
