Dolphins Sign Aaron Rodgers' Brother

Dolphins Sign Aaron Rodgers' Brother

Jordan Rodgers played college ball at Vanderbilt, and junior college Butte Community College, before entering the NFL in 2013. He went undrafted and was signed by Jacksonville but was released before the season started. He joined Tampa Bay's practice squad in October 2013, where he stayed for the rest of the season. The Buccannears released Rodgers after the season.

I have to be honest here. The title upsets me a little and I am sure if Jordan read it he would also be insulted. If you ever grew up in a large family with older brothers or sisters ahead of you in age you know what I am talking about. People want to be known by their own names not by the accomplishments of their elder brother or sister.

How about just "Dolphins sign Jordan Rodgers". Give the man a little self respect and dignity for crying out loud. Everyone here knows who Jordan Rodgers is. Can you or anyone else imagine how it must suck to be Jordan Rodgers? He has to try to live up to the best qb in NFL history.

Please all I am saying in the future is just give the poor guy his own name. Its the one thing he has to himself. I had older brothers and couldn't stand it when someone referred to me as "Bill Birney's little brother" and not my own. I am sure Jordan gets enough of that. Let's cut the poor guy some slack.

A nice post, Tom. As the youngest of 4, I agree with you. I suppose the editor wants to make it clear in the headline why packer fans should be interested, but still.

Yeah Reynaldo, you are probably correct why the editor did it but it's still unprofessional and this type of cheap journalism in order to get a few readers to bite needs to stop. Is this what they are teaching people in college today? I see it all the time now on the internet. These stupid ass headlines just to get you to read it. It's annoying and it's pissing me off. I am sure even Aaron Rodgers would cringe if he read this title.

I feel bad for Jordan big time. I know what he's going thru and so do you Reynaldo. He's a quarterback and will probably never live up to being as good as his older brother. I am sure he gets the "aren't you Aaron Rodgers' brother?" about 25 times a day wherever the hell the guy goes. He goes to relax and read some news on the internet and then he reads "Dolphins sign Aaron Rodgers' brother". Good Lord!! I thought Rodney Dangerfield didn't get respect. It pales in comparison to Jordan Rodgers.

I hope the kid can make the roster this season. I am rooting for all the young siblings in the family who get screwed over because of their older siblings. Go Jordan!!

Agreed. But the truly annoying headlines are more like: NFL player gets DUI. I have to click on it to see if its a packer, only to find its some practice squad player for some other team and that I never heard of the guy.

Yep, I don't know who these people are or where they get off writing headlines like this but apparently it's here to stay because it's becoming more and more prevalent.

There is nothing wrong with the headline. If it had said "Dolphins sign Jordan Rodgers," I would've have thought "Who? You mean Aaron Rodgers' brother? Oh, why didn't you just say so?" This is a Packers blog, it is not unreasonable for a headline to state how the article relates to the Packers.
