Jammal Lord might be the definitive forgotten Houston Texans player ever
Jammal Lord- what a good name for football, isn’t it? Imagine if he threw Hail Mary’s! Getting into Lord’s career in the NFL, he entered the league in the 2004 draft as a sixth-round pick. The dual-threat quarterback from Nebraska stood a solid 6’2″ and 215 pounds.
Known more for his ability to dash through the defense on the ground than his aerial prowess, Lord put up respectable numbers for his style of play. While he ended up throwing more interceptions than touchdowns in his career, it doesn’t really make sense why the team wanted to switch him to the DB/safety position.
Whatever the reason is (no articles exist on the internet why), he only wound up appearing in one game for the Texans and was later waived by the team. Lord has been spotted working in the oil fields of North Dakota as of late.
In the video game ESPN NFL 2K6, he is one of the best running backs (imagine a QB/RB/S combo in real life) you can sign to your team for a very cheap deal in franchise mode. Don’t let the numbers fool you, he can be productive as a one-two punch on the ground.
