Cameron Jordan, Saints Agree to Three-Year, $52.5 Million Extension

Star defensive end Cameron Jordan and the New Orleans Saints reportedly agreed to a three-year, $52.5 million contract extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was unusually loose-lipped during his press conference following Tuesday's minicamp practice, which was broadcast live on team social media and the Saints website.

The eight-year NFL veteran first came to the Saints as a first-round selected player in the 2011 NFL Draft, and the new contract would further secure his career standing with the Saints. That group began with Von Miller at No. 2 and included Aldon Smith (No. 7), J.J. Watt (No. 11), Ryan Kerrigan (No. 16), Adrian Clayborn (No. 20), Jordan, Muhammad Wilkerson (30) and Cam Heyward (31).

Jordan posted 12 sacks in 2018 and has reached the double-digit sack mark in four of his eight National Football League campaigns.

It's rare for a player to ink an extension with two years left on his current deal, but if there is any player who deserves to buck the trend, it's Jordan, who is an exemplary player both on and off the field. The four-time Pro Bowler is entering his eighth season.

"I'm not here for potential". And it was signed before the NFL's elite edge rushers started getting paid nearly as much as quarterbacks.
