Saints DE Cameron Jordan recently underwent surgery on his left foot.
The surgery will require a 4-6 week recovery. If Jordan was injured last year, he sure didn't play like it. The 28-year-old appeared in every game for New Orleans while earning All-Pro honors for the first time in his career. It would be a surprise if Jordan isn't ready for OTAs. Feb 23 - 3:05 PM

Saints DE Cameron Jordan was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 6.

Jordan was a true game-wrecker against the Lions, tallying two sacks, three batted passes, and a pick-six as a 4-3 end. The Saints' defense was the top-scoring D/ST unit in fantasy for Week 6. New Orleans doesn't have a ton of playmakers on defense, but Jordan is one. He's Pro Football Focus' top-rater 4-3 end through Week 6, and has five sacks while playing elite run defense.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett reports DE Cameron Jordan has been "flashing more" than any other player in New Orleans' camp.

Snubbed from the Pro Bowl and Top 100 list last season, Jordan promised that a "sleeping giant" has been awoken. RT Zach Strief agrees, saying this is the "best camp" Jordan has "ever had." Jordan is a true every-down player who can play both end and rush from the interior. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 3-rated 4-3 end last season, playing well against the run and pass.

Saints RE Cameron Jordan played through a sprained MCL earlier this season.

Jordan suffered the injury in Week 2, but played 64-of-64 snaps in Week 3. "Those are things that you have to deal with," Jordan said, adding that he wore a brace. Jordan has only five sacks, but has generated a ton of pressure. He's a big reason the Saints' defense has stopped embarrassing itself over the past two months.

Saints LE Cameron Jordan (back surgery) has resumed participating in full-team drills at OTAs.

Jordan told reporters last week he was "ahead of schedule," and made good on that statement by returning to full-squad practice. Jordan, 27, has never missed a game in five NFL seasons and is coming off a terrific ten-sack campaign.

Saints LE Cameron Jordan (back surgery) is sitting out OTAs, and without a timetable for a return.

Speaking Thursday, Jordan said the team is "just being safe," but made it sound as if he might not be ready for the start of training camp. "I can’t give out a timetable for me being back 100 percent, but I do know that we’ll be well within camp, season." It sounds like Week 1 is the target, which means Jordan could sit out the entire preseason. Coming off a 10-sack campaign, Jordan has yet to miss a game in five NFL seasons.

Saints converted $2.73 million of LE Cameron Jordan's 2016 base salary into a bonus.

New Orleans did the same with P Thomas Morstead, converting $2.1 million of his salary into a bonus. The two moves should create enough cap room for DT Nick Fairley, who was signed on Monday. The Saints' best avenue for creating cap space is extending Drew Brees, but there has been little news on that front.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Saints LE Cameron Jordan underwent "minor" offseason surgery on his lower back.

Jordan reportedly played through the issue late in the season and in the Pro Bowl, suggesting it's not a serious problem. But it's worth noting nonetheless. Jordan had a monster 2015 with 10 sacks. He's never missed a game. Jordan is expected to start training soon but could sit out spring practices.

Saints LE Cameron Jordan restructured his contract, converting his $6 million roster bonus into a signing bonus.

It's a procedural move for the Saints. Jordan isn't taking a pay cut, but GM Mickey Loomis is again enacting the "rob Peter to pay Paul" strategy to create cap room. By doing so, this allows the Saints to spread the $6 million hit over the final five years of Jordan's deal. Jordan was PFF's No. 2-ranked 4-3 end last season, registering 70 combined sacks, hits, and hurries.
Wed, Feb 17, 2016 09:20:00 AM reports Saints DE Cameron Jordan is being investigated over a weekend nightclub incident.

Sources tell the T.V. station that Jordan is being investigated for allegedly "(swatting) a woman on her buttocks," and then getting into a "minor scuffle" with her boyfriend. Jordan has reportedly been "cooperative" with police. At as of this moment, Jordan's Week 1 status does not appear to be in doubt.

The Saints plan to "lean on" DE Cameron Jordan to key their pass rush following Junior Galette's release.

On the first day of Saints camp, Jordan lined up as a "seven-technique" end, hinting he'll have the opportunity to rush the passer off the edge more. New Orleans appears to have scrapped its 3-4 defense and will use more four-man fronts. Beat writers have suggested the versatile, athletic Jordan could be used as a "Joker" who moves around the defense and wreaks havoc.

Saints signed DE Cam Jordan to a five-year extension worth up to $60 million.

The deal, which runs through 2020, includes a hefty $33.6 million in guaranteed money and nearly $27 million over the next two years. It's a ton of cash considering the down year Jordan had in 2014, but we saw his sky-high ceiling in 2013 when he graded out as a top-four 3-4 end in PFF's grades. Still just 25 years old, Jordan 28 sacks in his last 48 games. The Saints continue to invest heavily in their defense and running game this offseason.
Tue, Jun 2, 2015 10:34:00 AM

Contract-year DE Cameron Jordan is expected to participate in the Saints' offseason program.

It's a show of good faith from Jordan after he notched 7.5 sacks last season. The sides have mutual interest in a new deal. Jordan turns 26 in July.

SI's Peter King suggests Saints DE Cameron Jordan and/or G Jahri Evans could be traded on draft day.

The Saints are trying to rebuild their identity on the fly, and the draft is an obvious spot to get active. Coming off a down year and entering the final year of his rookie deal, Jordan may be asking for more than GM Mickey Loomis is willing to give in an extension. Evans, previously mentioned as a candidate for release, could likely be had for a late-round pick. The Saints currently have an NFL-high five picks in the first three rounds.
Mon, Mar 30, 2015 08:10:00 AM

The Saints and LE Cameron Jordan have discussed a long-term contract.

After a dominant 2013 season that saw Jordan grade out as a top-four 3-4 end at Pro Football Focus, Jordan had a down year with the rest of the 2014 Saints. His sacks fell from 12.5 to 7.5, though Jordan remained a strong run defender. Jordan hasn't missed a game in his four NFL seasons and is entering the final year of his rookie deal. He's in the tier below J.J. Watt.
