Aaron Rodgers’ younger brother sets sights on NFL

Representatives from 22 NFL teams — including a large contingent representing the Tennessee Titans — gathered at a joint pro day for Tennessee State and Vanderbilt held on March 22, where 12 Tennessee State players worked out in the morning and nine Vanderbilt players worked out in the afternoon.

The pro day was held at Tennessee State since Vanderbilt does not have an indoor practice facility.

Rogers Gaines, Tennessee State OT (6-foot-6 5/8, 331 pounds) — Gaines — who was at the NFL Scouting Combinestood on his time in the 40-yard dash (officially 5.24 seconds). At the pro day, he did a 26 1/2-inch vertical jump, 8-foot broad jump, 5.22-second short shuttle and 8.08-second three-cone drill.

Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt RB (5-8 5/8, 216) — Stacy — who was at the combine — stood on his numbers from the event in the vertical jump, three-cone drill and bench press (he was a top performer in his position group in the bench press and three-cone). At the pro day, Stacy had a 10-foot-6 broad jump.

Jordan Rodgers, Vanderbilt QB (6-1 1/4, 212) — Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, was only able to throw the ball at the pro day due to a left groin injury. He threw it pretty good, too, and has a chance to be signed as a rookie free agent to be a training camp arm (by the Packers, perhaps?). In 2012, Rodgers threw for 2,539 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions for the Commodores.
