Is Cam Jordan the New Orleans Saints master recruiter?
New Orleans Saints All-Pro defensive end Cam Jordan is leveraging his Twitter page to bring in more talent for the upcoming season. Will it work?
Cam Jordan is many things. Aside from his amazing football abilities, Jordan dabbles in a myriad of other ventures. Whether it be fashion, sideline reporting, or sometimes just downright trolling, Jordan has proved to be a man of many talents. The New Orleans Saints star is trying to add recruiter to that list.
With NFL free agency currently happening, lots of player movement is taking place as teams try to position themselves to fit needs before the upcoming draft.
Jordan is trying to position some of those players to end up in black and gold. When a list of available free agents made it in the direction of Jordan, he didn’t seem hesitant to put his 2 cents in.
The 30-year-old Dion Jordan (no relation) is the player Cam is pushing for. The six-year veteran had his last stint with the then Oakland Raiders, appearing in 7 games last season.
Dion has well documented off the field issues stemming from multiple suspensions for substance abuse. His market isn’t very high so his cost wouldn’t be as well. It’s more or less him getting his priorities together and not his talent on the field.
Cam didn’t just stop with the defense. Once a staunch nemesis, Cam pushed to get another Cam on the black and gold side.
Saints fans before you click off this post, just hear me out. With Brees signing a two-year deal recently, the Saints are once again contenders to reach next year’s Super Bowl. However, what happens after those 2 years when Brees inevitably retires?
Most think Taysom Hill is the heir apparent to the Saints offense.
While the Who Dat Nation loves the grit and playmaking ability Hill brings, the uncertainty lies in whether Hill can be an everyday signal-caller for the entirety of an NFL season. Who better to possibly be given that chance than a young former MVP quarterback in Newton?
While I personally think this is a long shot to happen, the circumstances for both parties would make sense.
Newton would have a chance to get completely healthy physically while training his mind as he learns from a future Hall of Famer in Drew Brees and an offensive genius in Sean Payton.
The Saints would get the quarterback of the future, as Newton would be just 32 in 2 years, and a proven quarterback who has won at a high level. Hill could still be a valuable backup and used in a similar role as he is today.
Wishful thinking I know, but interesting nonetheless.
The New Orleans Saints have addressed some key needs this offseason as they have solidified their offensive line, found their number 2 receiving option, and added veteran leadership in the secondary. While these are all great additions, clearly Cam Jordan is looking for more.
If he does as well at recruiting as he does playing football, add future GM to his list of accomplishments.
