While he played in the Cardinals' minor league system, Jordan played defensive back for the Falcons from 1989 to 1991, he had four sacks in his brief NFL career. He led Atlanta in tackles and was voted as an alternate to the National Football Conference Pro Bowl team during the 1991 season. In June 1992 Jordan signed a new contract with St Louis giving him a $1,700,000 signing bonus to give up football and play baseball ending his football career.

Jordan made his MLB debut on April 1992, with the Cardinals. He played as a utility outfielder during his first three seasons, but in his first full year, in 1995, his stats included 145 hits, 20 doubles, a.296 batting average in 490 at-bats. He hit 22 home runs and 81 RBIs, he built on his success in 1996, hitting.310 with 104 RBIs and a.349 on-base percentage, playing as the right fielder and cleanup hitter for the Cardinals. Jordan posted a.422 batting average with runners in scoring position, which became the Cardinals' all-time highest mark, until outfielder Allen Craig topped it in 2013. He led the Major Leagues in batting average with the bases loaded. In the postseason that year, Jordan hit.333 in the NLDS and had a game-winning home run in Game 4 of the 1996 NLCS. Shrugging off a 1997 season in which he suffered injuries and hit.234 with no home runs, Jordan scored 100 runs, hit 25 home runs, batted a career-high.316, had a.534 slugging percentage in 1998. His stats in 1998 helped earn Jordan a $21.3 million contract with the Atlanta Braves.

Jordan had a strong May to help carry the Braves early in the 1999 season. This propelled him to his only All-Star appearance, he drove in 115 runs. In the 1999 NLDS against the Houston Astros, Jordan batted.471, had the game-winning double in the 12th inning of Game 3, drove in seven of Atlanta's 18 runs during the series.

After a solid season in 2002 in which he hit.285, injuries decreased Jordan's playing time in 2003. Jordan signed a one-year contract with the Texas Rangers in 2004.

In 2005, he returned to the Braves, spending most of the season on the disabled list with left knee inflammation while rookie sensation Jeff Francoeur took over in right field.
