A 12-year NFL veteran out of Washington University in St. Louis, Jordan spent eight seasons in New England from 1975-1982, playing in 95 games with 87 starts at right tackle.
Jordan was a seventh-round pick (157 overall) of the Houston Oilers in the 1973 NFL Draft before his free agency signing with the Patriots.
In 1983, Jordan signed a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Raiders where he helped the team win a Super Bowl title later that year and retired with the franchise following the 1986 season.
Following his football career, Jordan and his wife funded and directed a Los Angeles-based nonprofit corporation that provided affordable urban housing. In 2013, Jordan earned induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
