After two seasons with the Bengals (2019-20), he played the past two years with the Carolina Panthers (2021-22). Overall, Jordan has played in 55 regular-season games with 29 starts at left guard. He played right guard for his first two seasons in college before switching to center as a junior. Jordan earned first-team All-America honors from SI.com and second-team honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation in 2018. Jordan will wear No. 79 for the Packers.
