Selected by Hawthorn in the first round of the 2004 Draft with Jarryd Roughead and Lance Franklin, the three of them were a catalyst in lifting the club from the doldrums at the bottom of the ladder to their Premiership success in 2008.
After enjoying a fine 2014 season, Jordan took his game to an elite level and is now respected as one of the best midfielders in the AFL. Jordan combines his hardness at the contest, competitive spirit, endurance, and ability to kick goals to break teams open. Jordan was instrumental in the teams 2014, 15 & 16 Premiership success where he was the general of the Hawks midfield.
At the conclusion of the 2016 season and after 264 games for his beloved Hawks, Jordan made the tough decision to move to Melbourne where he thought his experience and skill set could be of great benefit to an up and coming Demons team. With a year to run on his contract at the Hawks, a trade was successfully brokered between the clubs resulting in Jordan becoming a Demon until at least 2019.
In his first year at the Demons, Jordan's impact on the group was immediate with the direction he provided his teammates during tight games particularly evident. Playing 19 games for the season, Jordan finished third in the Best & Fairest. In 2018 Jordan helped lead a young Melbourne team to their first finals appearance in over a decade where they ultimately made it to the Preliminary Final to lose to eventual Premiers, West Coast.
Jordan has always been proactive off the field undertaking a building apprenticeship, before studying Logistics. He has also increased his workload in the media with a regular spot on Tuesday nights on AFL 360, along with providing special comments for AFL Live when his playing schedule permits. He has also discovered a passion for Wine and has recently launched a new label with some associates.
