After three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, veteran running back Jordan Todman signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers.

Todman was originally drafted in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers, but was relegated to the practice squad. He then went to the Minnesota Vikings, but was bumped down to the practice squad there.
He signed with the Jaguars late into the 2012 season, and played in all 16 games in each of the last two seasons, rushing and receiving for 764 total yards and five touchdowns.
During last year's Thursday Night Football matchup against the Tennessee Titans, with the Jaguars driving in the middle of the fourth quarter, I remember joking aloud, "What is Jordan Todman doing in the game?" He then proceeded to rip off a 62-yard touchdown.
And for that, we salute you, Jordan Todman.
