Jordan has agreed to a five-year extension worth up to $60 million, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

A first-round draft pick in 2011, Jordan has been one of the few consistent parts of the New Orleans defense in recent seasons, averaging 55 tackles and 9.3 sacks over the last three years. He's one of the top 3-4 defensive ends in the league, and he'll turn 26 in July. While his role isn't conducive to IDP production, Jordan did finish second on the Saints in defensive snaps last season, even playing every snap in multiple games.

Jordan managed 7.5 sacks, an interception and 51 tackles in 16 games in 2014.

Jordan was one of the Saints biggest disappointments this year, mustering only one sack in the first six weeks of the season. While he came on a bit towards the middle and end of the year, it may not have been enough for many fantasy owners, who expected big things after Jordan racked up 12.5 sacks in his 2013 Pro Bowl season. An additional pass rusher is high on the list of offseason priorities for the Saints, so hopefully the acquisition of a capable defensive end could assist in relieving some of the pressure on Jordan and result in a return to his previous form.

Jordan had six tackles (one solo), a sack and an interception in Sunday's win against the Steelers.

Sunday arguably marked Jordan's most complete game of the season, and his interception - the first of his career - was particularly impressive, as he batted a pass up straight into the air and had the wherewithal to pick it off. With a slate of subpar opposing offensive lines on the schedule, Jordan could be a fantastic option down the stretch for IDP owners if he can build on Sunday's big performance.

Jordan made four tackles (all solo) in Monday night's loss to the Ravens.

Back-to-back four-tackle performances have helped mitigate the fact that Jordan hasn't recorded a sack since Week 10, but he's unquestionably been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season, with only five sacks on the year. Still, the best option in most leagues is to stay the course with the young pass rusher, as the schedule turns favorable for him once again, starting in Week 13 against a porous Pittsburgh offensive line.

Jordan had three tackles (two solo), a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Jordan continues to reward owners who stuck with him during his early-season struggles, as he now has four sacks in his last three games. The tackle numbers remain low relative to last year's Pro Bowl pace, but he's really started to pick up his production of late and makes for a great option in IDP leagues.

Jordan made four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Thursday's game against the Panthers.

After a disappointing start to the season, Jordan has racked up three sacks in his last two games combined. Hopefully his recent performances represent a trend, though it must be noted that his last two opponents, Green Bay and Carolina, rank among the worst in the league in protecting the quarterback. Things will be tougher in Week 10 against a very good 49er offensive line, so it will be interesting to see if Jordan can build on this momentum and re-stake his claim as one of the best young pass rushers in the league.

Jordan made three tackles (two solo) and two sacks in Sunday night's win against the Packers.

The Green Bay offensive line is a mess, and Jordan capitalized in prime time, notching sack nos. two and three for the year. Owners who have been patient with the struggling Jordan could be rewarded again on Thursday, as he faces a Carolina offense that ranks among the worst in the league in sacks allowed.

Jordan recorded three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Jordan now sits on a pedestrian 15 tackles for the year, but arguably more troubling for fantasy owners is the fact that he has only a single sack. It doesn't appear that Jordan is nursing any sort of injury, as he played on 64 of 70 defensive snaps. He just simply has not been productive after last season's Pro Bowl campaign. If there's any chance of turning it around it's over the next two weeks, when the Saints face the porous offensive lines of Green Bay and Carolina.

Jordan made four tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win against the Bucs.

It was nice to see Jordan finally show some signs of life, but the four tackles constitute nearly half of his 11 tackles for the entirety of the 2014 season. It's likely best to stay patient with Jordan in the hopes that the Saints can fix whatever is wrong with their anemic pass rush during the Week 6 bye, but fantasy owners can't be faulted for being frustrated, as Jordan still has only one sack to his name and remains well behind last season's pace in tackles.

Jordan made two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win against the Vikings.

The sack was Jordan's first of the year, a welcomed site for fantasy owners. With only five tackles in three games, Jordan remains well off last year's pace, when he managed 47 tackles, but hopefully Sunday's quarterback takedown will set him up to get on a roll.
