Former Dartmouth Star, Todman, Signs With Jets
Former Dartmouth High School football standout Jordan Todman is headed back close to home.
Multiple reports surfaced Tuesday that the 27-year-old, who has played for four teams in his six professional seasons, is headed back to the northeast on a deal with the New York Jets.
While the reports hinted at the possibility of a deal between Todman and the Jets, the Dartmouth native made it pretty clear that he'll be playing in New York, via his instagram.
Todman has enjoyed some success since entering the league back in 2011, after a solid college career at UConn. In 60 career games, he has carried the ball 124 times for 531 yards, which averages out to 4.3 yards per carry. He has also caught 40 passes for 314 yards and has totaled five touchdowns.
Where his presence has been felt most, throughout his tenure however, has been in the return game. In 85 attempts as a kickoff returner, Todman has averaged 26.6 yards and has a career long of 99 yards along with one score.
After spending 2016 with the Indianapolis Colts and time before that with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars, Todman will be back close to home in 2017 and all the Dartmouth faithful will have the chance to watch him play at least twice this season when the Jets battle the hometown New England Patriots.
