Cameron Jordan (2011-present)

Cameron Jordan is the only player on this list still on the active New Orleans Saints roster in 2019. He was drafted with the No. 24 overall pick out of the University of California in 2011.

Cam has started and played his entire career up to this point with the New Orleans Saints — he is currently in his 9th season.

In his nine seasons with the Saints, Jordan has totaled 453 tackles in 139 games. He adds ten forced fumbles and ten fumble recoveries; 85 sacks; and 165 quarterback hits. Jordan has been selected to four Pro-Bowls and one first-team All-Pro.

Hopefully, Cameron Jordan has many more years of Saints football ahead of him and these numbers will be just a piece of the history that Jordan will leave on this organization and the whole city of New Orleans.
