Jordan Rodgers is returning to football. Kind of.
Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and winner of the latest season of “The Bachelorette,” revealed Tuesday night — one day after the hit TV show’s season finale — that he’s joining the SEC Network this fall as a college football studio analyst.
“We first interviewed Jordan in March and he auditioned in May, before ‘The Bachelorette’ had begun airing,” ESPN Senior Vice President Stephanie Druley said, according to a release, of Rodgers joining the SEC Network, which is an ESPN channel. “We were struck by the clarity of his thought and strong, thoughtful opinion on the many layers of college football.”
The younger Rodgers played quarterback for two seasons at the Vanderbilt before bouncing around a few NFL practice squads. The 27-year-old since has gained fame through his televised love pursuit of JoJo Fletcher, who accepted Rodgers’ marriage proposal on the season finale of “The Bachelorette.”
It now appears his face isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
