Don’t Tell Cameron Jordan the Saints Are Not a Contender in 2020

????

There’s been an underlying tone that the Saints are just not going to be as good this season as even last season, this despite the team getting back just about all the roster from last year.

One player who doesn’t want to hear it is veteran sack man Cam Jordan, who seems to feel just the opposite, that being the Saints are going to be a major player when it comes to deciding the NFC South and what team comes out of the NFC.

Jordan appeared on NFL Radio and was gushing about his team:

“Absolutely, I’m heading into year 10. I love it,” Jordan told hosts Brady Quinn and Kirk Morrison. “I’m super excited about it. You know, there’s nothing in me that is telling me that our team isn’t close to a championship or being a championship-caliber team if you look at the last three years. You know, playoffs, playoffs, playoffs. Playoffs, NFC Championship, playoffs. This is something that we have to capitalize on.

“You talk about Drew [Brees] coming back, our addition of Jameis Winston. You talk about, you know, we lose Vonn Bell, we bring in Malcolm Jenkins. We go draft an outside linebacker in this Zack Baun kid. You know, Alex Anzalone going to be healthy. There’s so many positives on paper, I just want to get back to the field and really see what we have.”

Another thing that has Jordan excited is the quarterback depth the team has. Last season they had to lean on Teddy Bridgewater after Drew Brees went down against the Rams.

Now the team has former 1st overall pick Jamies Winston, who comes to the Saints from the rival Buccaneers.

“So if Drew goes down, now we have Jameis, who you know can throw for over 4,000 yards. You know, can score touchdowns, who has the arm, and now is under, I would say, direct tutelage of one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. So, you know, now, I’m believing the hype. When Jameis said, ‘Hey, you know, if I correct a couple interceptions, I’m going to be the greatest quarterback.’ Now, we have the exact tutelage to get him in that realm.”
