The New Orleans Saints’ future first-ballot Hall of Famer Drew Brees is considered the GOAT by few, but one of those few is Pro Bowl DE Cam Jordan.
Drew Brees is going to make the Hall of Fame. He has numerous NFL records. Including a Super Bowl to his name, the 41-year-old is still rocking as one of the best at his position. He’ll be the unanimous leader of the Saints once again in 2020.
Brees, who created quite a stir this offseason with his comments on players kneeling during the national anthem, has, without issue, joined the team and is thriving with the Saints’ elite offensive threats.
He’s clearly kept his relationship with the vast majority of the team. Brees has certainly maintained his great relationship with star defensive end Cam Jordan.
Jordan, who recorded 15.5 sacks last season, gave high praise for Brees. Knowing a thing or two about top-tier quarterbacks, Jordan backed his claim early in the offseason about why the Saints are going to be among the best in the NFL.
Why is every other NFC South team playing for second place? Well, like Jordan said, it’s because of that player right behind him. Who Jordan considers the Greatest of All Time or GOAT, Brees has been the team’s leader for over a decade.
Brees is not usually respected by national media, hardly considered a top-five quarterback when the conversation is brought up. Obviously his teammates are different, but the praise still matters. Brees has recorded the most yards in the NFL seven times and the most passing touchdowns in a season four times.
His career has been famed, and it won’t be one forgotten for quite some time in the Big Easy. So, yes, Cam Jordan is right, and while many don’t believe it, the facts speak for themselves. Brees has been absolutely incredible throughout his career.
Let’s start giving Brees and his dominance in the NFL the respect it deserves.
