Defensive end Cameron Jordan has perhaps been the New Orleans Saints most consistent defender tsince he was drafted in first rounrnd out of California in 2011.
The Saints rewarded that consistency with a lucrative contract extension this offseason, securing a key part of the team's defensive line.
Jordan, 6 feet 4 and 287 pounds, keeps himself in great shape and plays with a high motor that's also on display during training camp workouts. Again, for fans fortunate enough to attend practices either in West Virginia or Metairie, watching Jordan in one-on-one pass rushing drills is something you don't want to miss.
Jordan, who missed just one game in his four-year career, has 29 sacks and five forced fumbles in his career.
Jordan said it: "I'm excited about this opportunity. I would like to thank Mr. Benson, the entire organization, my teammates and coaches and the New Orleans Saints fans for their support the last four years. New Orleans has become my home and I look forward to continue making an impact both on and off the field for a long time here. Now we can put our focus on the most important thing, which is working hard day in and day out towards our ultimate goal of a championship."
