New Orleans Saints’ 2010’s all-decade team – who’s the best?
Cameron Jordan (DE), David Onyemata (DT), Sheldon Rankins (DT), Junior Galette (DE)
The most notable players on the defensive line are the two end caps and for completely different reasons. Cam Jordan has been one of the most reliable and steadfast ends the Saints have ever had and Junior Galette left the Saints a complete debacle.
Since joining the organization in 2011, Cam Jordan has 463 total tackles, 87.0 sacks, 10 forced fumbles, 9 recoveries, and two interceptions. He was a 2013, 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Pro-Bowler and a 2017 first-team All-Pro.
Junior Galette played from 2010 to 2014. In those years he totaled 144 yards, 34.5 sacks, and six forced fumbles. Those are numbers that put him concretely in the second-best defensive end in the decade. However, his personal issues also almost cost him that spot.
After an arrest in 2014, the Saints released him to rid the team of his actions. He left the team in shambles making a loud exit. His later years results in two torn Achilles’ tendons before he retired a couple of years later.
