Saints DE Cam Jordan blessed to be at Pro Bowl

Categories: 

Not getting to the Super Bowl was a major disappointment for the 2019 Saints, but a 13-3 season is still a stellar feat accomplished by a lot of stellar players. A franchise record 11 Saints were named to this year’s Pro Bowl (Marshon Lattimore dropped out due to injury), and you could argue a few more belong in Orlando, Florida for the NFL’s All-Star game. One of the Black & Gold’s representatives, Cameron Jordan, joined Sports Talk to chat with host Kristian Garic a little about being named to his 5th Pro Bowl.

“The honor that you have to not only have the opportunity to get to the Pro Bowl, but the honor to actually be able to play in the Pro Bowl, to be healthy enough to play in the Pro Bowl after going through 16 games, 17 games. Nobody would say unscathed, but healthy enough to perform at a high level.”

The 30-year-old was drafted 24th overall in 2011 and has never missed a game. The black & gold iron man has played in 144 consecutive regular season games. Add-in 9 from the postseason which brings his total of never missing an NFL game to 153.

You can also add All-Pro status to Jordan’s name the past 3 seasons. His father, Steve Jordan, played tight end for the Minnesota Vikings for 13 seasons and must have passed down some strong football genes. Cam Jordan was asked if he would be petitioning for any snaps on the offensive side of the ball at tight end in Sunday’s Pro Bowl.

“Absolutely, I was over there talking to Pete (Carroll) today about it.”

Cam has scored one touchdown in his 9-year career.

Jordan just finished the 2019 season with a career-high 15.5 sacks with 25 hits on the quarterback, 1 fumble recovered and 53 tackles.
