Originally from Glenelg (SA), Jordan is a midsized running player who mainly plies his trade in defence. Jordan was recruited from the SANFL in the 2000 National AFL Draft with the Bulldogs' first selection. Jordan made his debut in 2001, playing 4 games for the Dogs, showing their fans that he has immense football talent.

Jordan continued to improve and develop his football skills further in his second season with the Bulldogs, becoming a regular member of the senior side by playing 15 valuable games and providing useful run out of defence.

Jordan's true value was seen when he played a great game against the Eagles in round 18 in 2002, where he collected 25 possessions and was awarded with an AFL Rising Star Nomination.

McMahon's proceeding two years were much of the same and again he was a regular member of the Bulldog’s side and collected over 200 possessions in both seasons.

In 2005, Jordan was another player to thrive under Rodney Eade’s game plan. The lightening quick defender proved to be a headache for small forwards with his constant pressure, quality disposal and rebounding ability. Jordan averaged 19 possessions a game, with a career best against the Blues in round 13 collecting a total of 26 possessions. A hamstring strain was the only obstacle that stopped him playing all 22 home & away games for that year.

Jordan followed on from 2005, playing every game for 2006 and being assigned important roles on the oppositions dangerous small forwards. Another consistent year saw McMahon average 19 possessions per game and play an important role in the Bulldogs two final appearances.

In 2007, Jordan played 18 games for the Dogs and averaged just over 19 possessions per game before being traded to Richmond at the end of the season.

Despite occasional criticism about his disposal, the dashing half-back enjoyed a fine first season with the Tigers after crossing from the Bulldogs, playing every game, finished in the club's top 10 in the Best and Fairest and lead the club in kicks (313), handballs received (271) and rebounds from 50 (82).

Continuing his good form from 2008, McMahon played a total of 8 games during the 2009 season and the Tigers will be hoping that Jordan can regain his best form and become an integral part of the line-up in season 2010.
