Brian O'Neal Jordan (born March 29, 1967 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a retired Major League Baseball outfielder and National Football League safety. In the NFL, he played for the Atlanta Falcons, while he played in the MLB for the St. Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Texas Rangers.

Jordan was a sports star at Milford Mill Academy in Randallstown, Maryland. After graduating from the University of Richmond, Jordan embarked on a dual baseball and football career. He was drafted in the first round of the 1988 draft by the St. Louis Cardinals and also signed a contract with the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. He has older twin siblings named Deric and Felicia. Deric, his older brother was an outstanding football player, baseball player and wrestler at Milford Mill Academy and an even greater standout in football at Washington and Jefferson College where he started as a freshman and lettered all four years. Deric was the first to be looked at by the NFL and given the chance to walk on with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Felicia has just as impressive athletic credentials as her brothers excelling in volleyball, basketball, and softball.

While climbing the ladder in the Cardinals' minor league system, Jordan played defensive back for the Falcons from 1989 to 1991. He had five interceptions and four sacks in his brief career, but Jordan decided to give up football to concentrate on baseball.
