5 most irreplaceable New Orleans Saints on the 2020 roster
Enough with the offense, let’s get to why the Saints defense is so talented. The most irreplaceable defender on the roster is a defensive end, Cameron Jordan. Paired with Marcus Davenport, they are a deadly combination.
One of the main objectives for the defense is to get the ball back for the offense. They do that is a plethora of ways — intercepting the ball, making the offense go three and out, forcing and recovering a fumble, and so on.
All of those, though, start with getting pressure on the leader of the offense, the quarterback. That is the sole job of the defensive end — disrupt the quarterback — and if there is one thing that Cameron Jordan does well, it is getting to the quarterback.
Last season, Jordan recorded 15.5 sacks, a career-high, and 25 hits on the quarterback. That is what led him to his fifth Pro-Bowl appearance, and that is what makes him irreplaceable to the 2020 New Orleans Saints roster.
