As the New Orleans Saints battle the Bucs on Sunday Night Football, Cameron Jordan has caught fire in what’s mostly been a slow season for him. Jordan entered the game with 98.5 sacks on the year and officially has hit 100 sacks in his career. Not only that, but he recorded sack No. 100 against none other than Tom Brady.
Jordan, a former first-round pick by the Saints in the 2011 NFL Draft out of California, has been a fan-favorite in New Orleans since getting to the Big Easy a decade ago. After recording double-digit sacks in three of his last four seasons, it was puzzling to see Jordan not get after the quarterback in the 2021 season.
It took the former first-rounder until Week 7 to get his first sack of the season and on the season, he had just four.
Well, Jordan inched closer to matching his total from 2020 (7.5) with two sacks in the first half of the Saints-Bucs game with the second sack of the day being his 100th career sack. According to Luke Johnson, Jordan is the second Saints player to hit 100 sacks with the first being Rickey Jackson.
Cameron Jordan hits sack No. 100 against Tom Brady
Getting to 100 sacks is no easy feat and it’s only right that Jordan’s 100th sack was taking down Brady. Every defensive player dreams of taking down Brady and Jordan had the honor of doing so to give him triple-digit sacks in his prestigious career.
Hopefully, Jordan has four more sacks in him this season to give him another double-digit sack season. The guy is a Saints legend and fans love seeing him succeed.
