JORDAN THOMPSON

Jordan Thompson is an NFLPA Certified Contract Advisor and our Assistant General Counsel. He joined Priority Sports in September 2022 when Priority acquired Element Sports Group.

A former Division I football player, Jordan graduated from Elon University in Burlington, North Carolina, where he played defensive back. After his playing days, he joined the Detroit Lions as a Player Personnel Intern where he learned the ins-and-outs of scouting and player acquisition strategy. It was during this time he recognized his passion for representing players and decided to return to North Carolina to attend the Elon University School of Law.

While polishing his skills in negotiations and contract interpretation in law school, Jordan also worked with several NFL agencies, including Element Sports. In 2016, he served as an Account Executive at Element Sports and secured marketing and endorsement deals for Element clients. The following year, he joined the football administration and legal affairs department of the Washington Football Team, aiding in salary cap management, player negotiations and legal matters.

Upon graduating law school, Jordan joined a top international law firm as an associate attorney in the sports law and global litigation groups. He handled some of the most complex cases in the country, representing professional sports leagues and teams, Fortune 500 companies, and high net-worth individuals. He reflects on these experiences to provide well-rounded, informed and premium representation to his clients.

Jordan was born in Hickory, NC and currently resides in Atlanta, GA.
