Playing the Field: Aaron Rodgers' brother will be a contestant on 'The Bachelorette'

Bachelorette Draft Advice

It's almost "The Bachelorette" season, and the new slate of contestants is ready for public consumption on the show's website. One of the highlights is a former NFL quarterback -- but that's probably not the first thing you'd recognized about 27-year-old Jordan Rodgers.

Rodgers' brother has been the real star -- you may have heard of him. Aaron Rodgers has been the Green Bay Packers' starting quarterback since 2008, winning a Super Bowl in 2011 and twice taking home MVP honors.

But this summer, his little brother will finally get his chance to shine.

After running the offense at Vanderbilt in 2012, Jordan bounced around from the Jaguars, Buccaneers and Dolphins organizations before moving to the CFL in 2015.

According to his ABC.com profile, his favorite movies include Gladiator, Wedding Crashers and Princess Bride; he admires his grandparents more than anyone and the craziest thing he's done in the bedroom: "Try to hang a TV on the wall without directions or a stud finder."

We hope Jordan makes it far in the show, even if only to see an Aaron Rodgers appearance.
