While Jordan has always been a solid physical energy in the trenches, since making the Pro Bowl in 2013 after a 12.5 sack campaign, it’s safe to say he quieted down a bit in the pass-rushing category, totaling just 7.5 sacks in 2014 and beginning slow this season with only one sack through the first five games.

Don’t let the low numbers fool you though.  Jordan’s consistency at getting into the backfield never slowed down.  He just had problems finishing to get the sack, but the pressure was always there.  Don’t even get me started in the run-stop category — he’s arguably one of the league’s best.  And he did find his way in 2015, grading out (+47.4) the highest out off all the Saints’ players and second in the NFL among 4-3 defensive ends, per Pro Football Focus.

Cam Jordan is becoming one of the best and most consistent in the league at his job after recording ten sacks, 45 total tackles, 32 stops, five passes defended, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.  He looks to continue his superb effort in 2016 in hopes of a turnaround on the defensive side of the ball.  He was one of the few bright spots on defense.

Next: He gone!
