When the Atlanta Falcons signed Lamar Jordan as an undrafted free agent over the weekend, they gave him the opportunity to continue to pursue his childhood dream. Jordan really wants to play in the NFL on Sundays and will get a chance to prove that he can do so at slot receiver. “You know I got to go out there and show I belong, ” said Jordan. “My whole mindset, just waking up everyday, getting up for workouts, running routes, lifting weights and all of that, It’s kind of that mindset to compete, go get it.”
Jordan played his entire collegiate career as a quarterback at New Mexico. He feels like that could help him in the long run. “Playing quarterback, you know, I feel like I have an advantage,” said Jordan. “You know as a quarterback I kind of know where the quarterback wants to be, where the ball needs to be at. “Being in the triple option, You know, I was half of the time quarterback and half of the time running back so you know I’m kind of use to taking the hits. I’m kind of use to making somebody miss. Like I said, I’m prepared.”
The fast and elusive Jordan also expects to try and make the team through special teams. He said he will report for rookie mini camp May 10.
