- Literal man-mountain at 6’7″, 295, originally signed by the Houston Texans out of Pitt in 2018.
- Joined the San Antonio Commanders of the AAF in 2019, quickly establishing himself as a fan favorite.
- Starting all the games, blocked up front for one of the league’s best ground games.
- After the league shuttered, spent time with NFL teams in Miami, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, and Baltimore.
- Started 3 games with the Raiders (2020) and a game with the Ravens (2021).
After the AAF announced that it was folding, Jaryd showed up at one of the fan organized Commanders ‘going away parties’ thanking fans and saying goodbye at one of the local bars.
I wrote Jaryd care of the Ravens and he was nice enough to sign this card and put the inscription, ” ‘Manders Baby!” on it for me.
