Former Vikings TE Steve Jordan Has Son At Senior Bowl

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 27, 2011 – 10:26 am

Steve Jordan is the most prolific TE in Vikings history, recording more receptions and receiving TDs than any other TE in franchise history. He played for the Purple from 1982-94 (13 seasons) and finished his career with 498 catches for 6,307 yards and 28 TDs.

Those are pretty large shoes to fill.

But Jordan’s son, Cameron Jordan, won’t have to worry about receptions and TDs because he’s a DE. Currently Cameron is at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama trying to blaze his own trail to the NFL and continue his family’s NFL legacy. Cameron, who attended the University of California and played 3 seasons there, spoke with NFL.com’s Jason Feller about his decision to play DE (as opposed to his father’s position – TE) and the role his father plays in his life.

“We had the discussion a long time ago (about me playing tight end), and I just wasn’t meant for it at the time. I was a little shorter, a little stockier,” Jordan told Feller. “And then I sort of just leaned out.”

Jordan stands at 6-4, 280 pounds, which I’m guessing will place him in that “tweener” mold where teams that run either the 3-4 scheme or 4-3 scheme will take a long look at him. In the 4-3, he’d be a traditional DE. But in a 3-4 alignment, he could be an outside pass rusher – basically an OLB in the mold of Clay Matthews or DeMarcus Ware.

Feller rights, though, that Jordan made it clear he has no preference as to whether he plays in a 3-4 or 4-3 or even whether he plays end or linebacker.

One thing he knows for sure, though, is that his father is a valuable person to have in his corner.

“You don’t trust anybody more than your family and my dad has put me in the right direction. I believe in him.”

    Now there’s something you don’t see every day, a professional writer who doesn’t know how to spell “WRITES”! Or at least that was something that you never USED to see every day. What has this world come to when people fail at the simplest level of the tasks that they are paid to do?

    I like the Arden Hills idea. Put them in a tiny little town with tons of space to grow! Just North of Minneapolis, away from the overcrowded city that would only get even more conjested if they tried any sort of upgrade. That site has room for plenty of parking (TAILGATING!) and tons of extra space left over for bars and restaurants galore to enjoy pre- and post-game activities. Plus I’d bet it wouldn’t take nearly as long to get in or out of the area.

    Let’s get ‘er done!

    We may just not be interested in trading for VY. What I understand is that he is still under contract, so the coaches COULD be feigning a lack of interest to convince the Titans to just cut him loose. Them we could look at the possibility of signing him without a trade. But they could be on the up and up too, which would be a nice change from the underhanded dealings that Chilly was making. Whatever way they go though, I’m confident it will be the right decision. We have a good group of coaches now.

    HAGN Titus – But you don’t need to be that generous. An occasional mistake can be understood. Writers in these blogs however appear to make mistakes on every post. Every now and then they come back and fix their mistakes after they are pointed out, but if they’re getting paid for what they do they should be held accountable for their errors.

  27. By Parody on Jan 28, 2011 | Reply

    @Shawn – I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the Tîtans, so I don’t know the extent of his mental issues. I tried to look it up once and it seemed that they had more to do with Fisher and the QB coach who took over for Craig Johnson when he got bümped to RB coach.

    VYs stãts appear to be improving, and if he gets with some good coaches (hint hint) he might just be hitting his prime.

    I was neutral on Chilly for the longest time. I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he had an improving record, even though probowlers like Birk and Sharper were going to other teams even though the Vikings seemed like perfect fits for them.

    Then 2009 fell apart and 2010 revealed his true genius. But I really like Frazier too, and Singletary. There’s just something about both guys’ personality that makes them seem perfect in Minnesota. I was actually pretty surprised that the 49ers fired Singletary. He wasn’t winning the division, but he’s the type of coach that seems like he’d have the fans on his side regardless.

    I hated Chilly out of the gate because he was an OC that didnt call his own plays … then he grew on me because of the +2 wins per season approach

    but then when the heat was on you could see him shake, the whole Moss thing shouldnt have affected him if he was confident in himself … but when he got scared and cut Randy, I remembered why I didnt like him

    For What It’s Worth Department:

    The Vikings administration (mainly the Wilfs) in general have these traits:

    1. They are real estate developers from out east (New Jersey).
    2. Most have Law backgrounds.
    3. Several graduated from Harvard

    Because of this, a move to LA is unlikely. A move to the East or Midwest is more likely. Since most of the owners, and some VPs have real estate development expertise, they should make smart moves in building the new stadium.

    New Mexico needs a team. LOL, right, they could be the New Mexico ROAD RUNNERS, LOL, once more.
    #1 need for the Vikings is linemen.

    #3 get a new Stadium, semi open air, minimum land owner tax dollars, maybe a usury tax, or sale tax.

    The Arden Hills site is 430 acres of the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant along Interstate 35W and U.S. 10. Marketed as Northern Pointe, it’s scheduled for government auction this year. The stadium, team headquarters, parking for 25,000 cars — including tailgating — would take up 230 acres, Bennett said.

    While it does not have the amenities — such as proximity to mass transit — of an urban site, Bennett and Ortega tout its location near I-35W and Interstate 694 as offering accessibility to the entire region. Bagley has noted that as a plus as well.

    Addressing a state Senate committee Wednesday, Mondale restated Dayton’s support for a new stadium paid for with some taxpayer funds — as long as its operations are supported by “user fees,” the team pays for a fair share and the venue could be called a “people’s stadium.”

    Sounds good to me.

    I would prefer the stadium in the city, near downtown– it helps keep the central core vibrant– we are not a huge cosmopolitan city that has a strong heartbeat.

  45. By Parody on Jan 28, 2011 | Reply

    I’m sicking of going through all the hassle and traffic of downtown to get to a game. I went to the game in AZ a year ago and that was a much more entertaining atmosphere. The entire area around the stadium was reserved for parking, restaurants and bars that were all catering to the game. It was a lot more enjoyable than the half-block zone surrounding the dome that has state-fair type booths set up to try to produce the same atmosphere.

    Go with Arden Hills and help Minnesota to expand outward instead of trying to force Minneapolis to expand upward!

  47. By Titus on Jan 28, 2011 | Reply

    I drove by that AZ stadium a couple summers ago on a 118 degree day in the desert– that area is so spread out and growing so fast, they like the wide open spaces. I agree that downtown can be a hassle, especially parking. I have had season tickets to the dome before– never liked the stadium. Do you think the driving will be any better to Arden Hills? I can see huge lines down 35W and 694 as all the cars bottleneck to get off the exits. The parking will be better and there can probably be old-fashioned tail-gating. There are pros and cons for every site–

  48. By Parody on Jan 28, 2011 | Reply

    Those bottlenecks will not be nearly as bad as what is going on in Minneapolis, because the traffic will ONLY be for football games. Plus the traffic should be more spread out if the proper ammenities are built around the stadium. People won’t just be rushing to get to the stadium before the game starts, they’ll be able to plan for a much longer event because there will be extra things to do.

    Shawn: I’m betting Herschel Walker will be playing with the Vikings before Randy Moss. Herschel is training and wants to be the 1st 50 year old to play in the NFL. He has targeted the Vikings or the Falcons.

    The Wilf’s will get a stadium done. I’m not in the Twin Cities area and am not familiar with Arden Hills, but many pro teams now play in an outlying area to the major city. The Twins play down town, Timberwolves, Wild over in St.Paul. Each generates customers to support nearby businesses. Having a stadium in a different area of the metro area will spread the economic impact. Now study the Packers, draft some linemen, and let’s get back to winning.

    Fred, I thought we’ve explained this to you. The website has certain words that are deemed “naughty”. There is a good chunk of words that you wouldn’t even guess were bad, such as the most recent one that I learned of, bümped. You often need to be a detective to figure out where these words are hiding, such as the hòmo hiding inside of SOPhòmoRE.

    You can see that I get around the naughty filter by throwing in vowels with special characters over them. You can do this by copying and pasting one of these vowels: á å é ë ï í ò õ ü ú

    Or you can try out all the special characters by holding down alt and typing in codes on your num pad, (num lock needs to be on). The codes that I was using were in the 0220 – 0260 range.

    Then you can swear your mother fúcking áss off!

    To the best of my knowledge, I believe that the Metrodome was considered too expensive to renovate. It would be cheaper to bulldoze it and start over, sort of thing.

    Some ideas to make this site better for next season. Instead of Monday mailbag, the Vikings could choose 10 questions from fans. Allow fans to vote on the 5 best. Have Frazier or a player answer the questions and then allow fans to post their feedback. It’s clear Siewert and Wobschall go very vanilla on their questions and topics. Plus Siewert and Wobschall have had too many errors to their writing. That lowers the respect from the fans toward the organization. If we’re going to become an elite organization, we have to expect the communication to also be held to the highest levels. They could also do a weekly post of Monday morning GM to allow fans to submit ideas of how the team could be improved. Who to sign. Who to trade for. Player profiles. That’s my two cents.

    Relax Shawn: Those All-Star games are a joke. Limited offensive plays and defensive packages. These kids practiced together for all of about 15 hours. If we’re expecting the next Dan Marino, we’re setting the bar too high. Let’s wait until we see whoever we draft, and then we can rate them. A lot of scouts are very high on Locker, and they get paid to spot talent.

    Shawn, history is full of famous, great people who were once labeled as loosers and inferior by many so called “experts.” Please let’s refrain from placing people in a box– you have no idea who may be the next Montana or Favre.

    @arrow … all the scouts still say he has no accuracy

    the scouts also love jemarcus russell and ryan leafs upsides ….

    point is LOCKER cant pa’ss, Im telling you as a QB he had a game this year he completed 4 pa’sses and another only 5 and another only 10

    there is NO blitzing or press coverage in the senior bowl either

    @Titus … When it comes to football the Vikings are my team … Locker is NO GOOD

    If we took him it would set us back for another 4 years

    ok titus …. rick mirer

    he was supposed to be the next Montana according to the scouts

    tom brady wasnt even a discussion and hes one of the best ever

    the scouts said ryan leaf would be better than peyton manning in a couple years

    LOCKER IS THE NEXT BUST!!!!!!

    And all I am saying is relax– there are people in the Vikings organization that do this for a living— a living!!!! It is their job– they will do us right! I am telling you– Coach Frazier is in the house. It will be alright.

    As far QB’s go there has only been a handful that have played the position consistently well the last decade it is that hard to play that position why do you think so many teams go through them like underwear all these QB’s look real good in college but at the NFL level the players are much faster, smarter, better instincts, plus the defensive schemes are much more sound and can be changed consistently on every play! I hope the Vikings fix their QB situation, they haven’t had a consistent QB since Tarkenton! That’s why they haven’t been to the SB since Tarkenton!!! But first they need to address their stadium situation!!!!!

    Well, Chebner, I agree we need a long term franchise QB, but I disagree about our success or Superbowl chances since Tarkenton— I can count off hand at least 4 NFC championship games we played in since the late 80s — well after Tarkenton.

    Cameron Jordon looked great all week at the senior bowl. His draft stock is on the rise.

    Edwards and Robison are free agents…is DE Cameron Jordon the guy to replace Edwards??

    Titus – The comment wasn’t necessarily about our super bowl chances, but about our apparances. The actual facts of the matter. We got close a few times, but never made it there since Tarkenton.

    I like what we have in Webb and Bohmar. I would draft OL in the 1st round (Mike Pouncey C/G, or Nate Solder OT).
    I would draft QB C. Ponder or Pat Devlin in round 2.

    The wildcard is OLB and DE – Our first and second team guys are all free agents. Edwards/Robison and Leber/ E. Henderson. This could play a major roll in how the Vikings draft.

    @Shawn,

    Thank you for that commentary on Jake Locker. I have never seen the young man play. But it was a good vote of confidence for Joe Webb.

    Frazier is not giving Webb the job outright, he still has to earn it. Yet, it’s gotta be hurting Joe Webb a little bit to hear his coach say that it would be great to draft someone who could be a franchise QB.

    I don’t think Leslie Frazier was necessarily wrong in making that statement. Perhaps that’s just how it has to be, right now.

    Certainly Joe Webb could be a great QB. He reminds me of Tarkenton, the way he can scramble!

    @Parody,

    Thanks for your commentary on the insane “forbidden swear word code” that seems to exist on vikings.com.

    I will keep track of the name of this particular blog, in case I have questions again.

    I don’t remember anyone saying alleged swear words could be hidden.

    But thank you very much ! ! !

    @Shawn,

    I agree with your expert commentary! Alot of times the so called “experts” are as clueless as the rest of us. I watched the video about V Young and the Vikings qb situation.

    These two experts said that it might cost alot to get Carson Palmer, and that he might not be that good. I agree with that as very likely. However they went on to say he would be only a “bridge” qb, and not an 8 or 9 year guy.

    If Palmer is good enough, he’s young enough to be a 8 or 9 year qb for us. BESIDES WHAT WE NEED is A “BRIDGE” qb SO joe webb CAN DEVELOP!

    Besides…There have been too many Jim Plunkett, Earl Morrall, Joe Kapp, Warren Moon, Kurt Warner, Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas type stories to discount anyone at the QB position.

    We need:

    dr0wssp….lol dude shut your fudge p@cking @ss. we owned you last year with your own legend. lol thats football at its finest. this will be the real test for your P U S S Y qb sharon rodgers. funny….espn did a poll and the question was, when rodgers retires who will be the best packer qb of all time? sharon rodgers, brett favre, or bart starr. hahahahaha 48 states said brett favre. face it. sharon rodgers a little b!tch. hes not as good as everyone is making him out to be. he started out right away with the two best recievers in the league. favre started out with nobody. he made players. the packers are good yes. but you shouldnt run your mouth after we and brett favre, spanked your cheesy @sses not once, but twice also. i hope harrison puts sharon rodgers in the turf. i also saw sharon rodgers walk by an old lady dying with cancer and all she wanted was an autograph from him. walked right by her in the air port and she tryed to stop him. he just looked at her. nice class he has. packers are g@y, and they always will be. you wont get another legend like the last one. enjoy getting your butts kicked in the superbowl

    It’s all good Parody, but I still stand by what I wrote-both in content and context – my point being we have been on the doorstep to the Superbowl 4 times– meaning a franchise QB may or may not have made a difference– I know of two of those chances where the coaching was suspect.
