You've already made your point that he hasn't been a starter. And we all realize that anyway. So what else can you bag on him about other than being stuck behind a hall of fame back and 26 years old?
My point is simply that he's a career backup that potentially has some potential mixed in with a crop of proven RB's and young draftees with more talent. In a normal year, I'd give Jordan a less than 50% chance of finding a starting job. But this year when the RB pool is deeper than it's ever been, no thanks.

He has played great with the amount of playing time he has been given, so the only question mark would be: Does he have the endurance to play hard for a whole NFL game? I don't see why he wouldn't.
You could make literally the EXACT same description (changing Curtis Martin to an arguably better back in LT) for a guy named Jesse Chatman. Does that mean he'd be able to find a starting job somewhere if he were a potential FA this offseason? Hardly.
