Jets released RB/KR Jordan Todman.

Todman signed for the veteran minimum in June. There wasn't a role for him on the tanking Jets as a 27-year-old journeyman. UDFA Jahad Thomas replaces Todman.
Aug 23 - 7:24 PM

Jets agreed to terms with RB/KR Jordan Todman, formerly of the Colts.

Todman is a 27-year-old journeyman who adds depth at tailback and on special teams. The Jets will be the seventh NFL team with which Todman has spent time.
Jun 12 - 8:17 PM

Colts RB Jordan Todman rushed nine times for 59 yards in 2016.

Todman was in the mix for No. 2 duties in the preseason, but got passed up by Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson. Todman arguably offered more upside than Turbin, but the Colts didn't see it that way. One month shy of his 27th birthday, Todman has 13 total touches over the past two years.
Jan 2 - 12:05 AM

Colts RB Jordan Todman managed two yards on three carries in Saturday night's third preseason game.

Todman worked deep in the rotation, playing behind Frank Gore, Josh Ferguson, and Robert Turbin. Although Todman looks low on the depth chart, he is a core special teamer and that may save him. He recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown, wrestling the ball away from an Eagle at the bottom of the pile.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells left RB Jordan Todman off his 53-man roster projection.

Todman is theoretically competing with Robert Turbin for the backup role behind Frank Gore, but both could be supplanted by undrafted rookie Josh Ferguson. Todman looked good in limited work with Pittsburgh last season, and it would not be a shock if he beat out Turbin in camp.

Colts signed RB Jordan Todman, formerly of the Steelers.

Indianapolis will be Todman's sixth NFL stop since entering the league in 2011. Injuries to Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams forced Todman into a timeshare with Fitzgerald Toussaint late last season. He'll fight with Robert Turbin for scraps behind veteran starter Frank Gore in 2016.

Steelers RB Jordan Todman managed six yards on five carries in Sunday's Divisional Round loss to Denver.

Todman seemed to open the game getting a shot to show a "hot hand" -- potentially as the Steelers' lead back -- but he failed to generate yardage between the tackles and gave way to Fitz Toussaint in the final three quarters. Todman turns 26 next month and is headed for unrestricted free agency.

Jordan Todman rushed 11 times for 65 yards in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Todman only played 14 snaps to Fitzgerald Toussaint's 49, but he was more explosive with the ball in his hands. Todman ripped off a couple big runs and out-gained Toussaint 65-to-58 on the ground despite six fewer carries. Toussaint made big plays in the passing game, however, and seems to have the coaching staff's trust. Todman will continue to serve as a change-of-pace option if DeAngelo Williams (foot) sits out next week.

Steelers signed RB Jordan Todman, formerly of the Panthers.

Todman spent the preseason with Carolina after playing with the Jaguars the previous two seasons. He has a career 4.1 YPC average, but is nothing more than a change-of-pace back and special teamer.

The Steelers have interest in free agent RB Jordan Todman.

The Steelers are searching for depth behind DeAngelo Williams and Dri Archer while Le'Veon Bell serves a two-game suspension. Todman put up 134 yards on 17 carries during the preseason including a 49-yard touchdown sprint against Pittsburgh on Thursday night. He was among the Panthers' final cuts.
Sun, Sep 6, 2015 12:39:00 PM

Panthers released/waived RB Jordan Todman, LB Jason Trusnik, S Marcus Ball, LB Brian Blechen, CB Carrington Byndom, OT David Foucault, LB Adarius Glanton, CB T.J. Heath, TE Marcus Lucas, OG Jordan McCray, DT Terry Redden, TE Scott Simonson, OT Martin Wallace and CB Lou Young.

It bodes poorly for Todman's NFL future that he couldn't crack one of the thinnest running back corps in the league. Perhaps he'll be brought back after Week 1, where veteran salaries are no longer guaranteed. Trusnik is a core special teamer.
Sat, Sep 5, 2015 04:15:00 PM

Panthers reporter David Newton expects RB Jordan Todman to contribute as a kick returner.

Todman will have a tough time unseating fifth-round pick Cameron Artis-Payne or Fozzy Whittaker for snaps behind starter Jonathan Stewart, but he should improve the Panthers' bottom-ten return game. Todman owns a 25.9-yard average over 68 career kick returns.

Panthers signed RB Jordan Todman, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year contract.

Todman didn't get a restricted free agent tender from the Jags even though they only have Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart atop their depth chart. So Todman will fight for a roster spot in Carolina, where they'll continue to add backs behind Jonathan Stewart. Todman, a bit undersized at 5-10/198, does bring some added value as a solid primary kick return candidate.
Mon, Mar 30, 2015 12:31:00 PM

The Jaguars declined to tender restricted free agents RB Jordan Todman, FB Will Ta’ufo’ou, CB Teddy Williams, G/C Jacques McClendon, and TE Fendi Onobun.

All five become unrestricted free agents, as the Jags deemed none of them worthy of a $1.54 million lowest-possible tender. Todman served as a situational passing-down back in 2014, behind Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson. Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell has had 14 restricted free agents on his watch through three years on the job. He has not tendered a single one of them.
