The Saints just extended Cameron Jordan for 5 more years. Close to $60mil

Whether you like the move or not, I think this is a great way to get through to young players that it doesn't matter if you're in the Pro Bowl or a perceived "super star", what matters is that you show up, play hard, stay healthy, have a good attitude, and you'll be rewarded.

Nice move, in my opinion.

While I do like it, I wonder what it does to our salary cap.

I think its a pretty fair deal. I wonder how much is guaranteed

EDIT: Guaranteed money is $33.6 mil. Still a pretty fair deal IMO for someone who is a leader on defense, an every down player, and most importantly stays out of trouble (yes Galette, I'm looking at you)

Had to lock him up, he's the cornerstone of our defensive line

How does his deal compare to the market?

Campbell got 5 years, $55M with $17M guaranteed a few years back so this is very fair.

Echoing the above posts. 5yr/60mil is pretty much what I expected him to get. He's a top tier DE and got paid as such.

Fair deal to both sides leaning slightly in the Saints favor, IMO.

He's not the cornerstone of our DL, he's the cornerstone of our entire defense. Smile

Cam is my favorite Saint (other than the love I have for Drew Brees, as every Saints fan has) so I'm supremely happy with this. Fair deal too. Didn't get a steal, didn't overpay.

Pretty much agree with this, and with Domepatrol, it may be leaning slightly in the Saints favor, but certainly shows commitment by both parties.

In addition, you know this guy is gonna be playing pissed this year after the results of last years defense. With the new additions, we could be sitting on a bit of a sleeper cell here. It could look like good old fashion football. The only thing we'll be missing is mud.

Considering that we had absolutely nothing returning on our front 3 next season...it was a pretty important move to keep Brees' window open into 2016. I'm a big Cam fan. The guys motor never stops. Even when the rest of the team was giving up around him last year...he kept going. The stats are going to improve when the defense around him improves.

Wouldn't disagree but didn't want to discredit Lewis and Galette who are also top talents in our D

Neither of them are on Cam's level. They're both very talented players, but not the type of guys you can build a defense around. Cam is.
