Cameron Jordan DL NO 3 Months2 Comments
Saints exercised RE Cameron Jordan's fifth-year club option for 2015.
It's a no-brainer move for New Orleans, which now has Jordan under control for $8.4 million over the next two seasons. A 2013 breakout player, Jordan graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 3-4 end, behind only J.J. Watt, Calais Campbell, and Kyle Williams. Only Watt received better pass-rush marks. Turning 25 in July, Jordan has 20.5 sacks and five forced fumbles the past two seasons.

Saints LE Cameron Jordan thinks Rob Ryan's 3-4 defense "suits" him and says it will be a "great fit."
"The 3-4 is what I ran in college and it's something similar to we ran with coach Gregg Williams," Jordan said. "It's a blitzing, attacking system, which will be fun. I think it suits me. Without a doubt [Junior Galette and Martez Wilson] will be the most excited about the situation. As long as everybody is on the same page I can't see why this wouldn't be a great fit for us." Jordan recorded eight sacks in 2012, his second season out of Cal. Galette and Wilson are tentatively expected to man the outside linebacker, pass-rushing spots. The three of them will be pieces to build around.

Rookie DE Cam Jordan has started all three games this season.
Jordan has four solo tackles and three assists so far. Though he's yet to record a sack or forced fumble, he's credited with solid run defense. "I would say he's kind of in line with where we hoped he'd be," coach Sean Payton said. "He was a player we felt would play in the base as well as the nickel."

First-round DE Cam Jordan is progressing slowly at Saints camp.
Jordan is struggling to get a hold of the Saints' complicated defensive playbook, which includes both 4-3 and 3-4 looks. He'll play both end and tackle, forming a deep rotation with veterans like Will Smith, Alex Brown and Sedrick Ellis. Once up to speed, Jordan projects as a run-stuffer with difference-making athleticism.

Saints agreed to terms with No. 20 overall pick DE Cam Jordan on a four-year contract.
Jordan will have to answer questions about his pass-rush ability after failing to register more than 5.5 sacks in a season at USC, but he does project as an impact run-stopper. Son of former Vikings Pro Bowl TE Steve Jordan, Cam has elite athleticism for a 3-4 end. Jordan is ticketed for the left side in New Orleans.
