DE Cam Jordan gets extension with Saints

14 posts in this topic

OUTSTANDING.   You have to keep your playmakers/probowlers.  He is a great ambassador for the team as well.

Love this.  Great job, Loomis.

I think this was done for two reasons, and I heard a rumor the Saints were also working on dead year extensions for Armstead. I think it was done to show that the Saints reward good hardworking great character players as they did for Evans, and many other prior to having to do extensions, and to free up cap space. I expect MT's contract to be in the 20 mill per year neighborhood. The Saints have always tried to reward their in house guys first. I expect MT to get done before the offseason, and a few others next offseason with money to carry over either for Brees or Teddy depending on what Brees or the FO wants to do after this year.

Nice signing ..  this is an extension and not necessarily a restructuring, so I’m not sure about cap savings.  The article states he counts $14m against this year’s cap.

I know he had a high cap number before because of his original signing bonus. I wonder if over the cap has it. I will check and see.

This is his old contract, he counted over 14 million against the cap. They don't have his new numbers up yet, but I would imagine those numbers will climb a little for this year. Unless he didn't get a signing bonus just an extension which is possible. Sorry, I can't get his contract numbers to come over from the website.

I'm just excited that we were able to extend him. Jordan has an unbelievable motor,he never quits on a play. He seams to be getting better every year. Guys like that you make sure you keep around. Can you imagine losing him to a division rival?

The only concern I have right now is how much does Thomas want, and if we resign him to that what does that mean for the QB position next year? Realistically we are primed to compete next year with or without Drew, but if he wants to come back can we really say yes? Paying that much to a WR as well as few others, and the numbers keep climbing. We have 1-2 years tops before our cheap players eat up a bunch of our cap space.
