Defensive end Cameron Jordan is attempting to wrap his head around the current situation that the New Orleans Saints find themselves in.

With the recent retirement of former head coach Sean Payton, the Saints are sifting through the head coaching carousel in search of their new man. While most teams view a vacant head coaching position as a possible deterrent to players who are on the open market, Jordan believes New Orleans could be in a favorable spot.

Presently, quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be on the move. Following his abrupt and shocking early exit during the divisional round against the underdog San Francisco 49ers last weekend, Rodgers revealed that his decision to either stay or go will be made rather quickly. Although a trade for Rodgers would be difficult to pull off, Jordan points to their head coaching void as a way to lure Rodgers to New Orleans.

“I mean, I’ve heard he had some rifts with his last head coach,” said Jordan on ESPN’s Get Up earlier today. “So I’m just saying, maybe come pick one out.”

Aaron Rodgers could be on his way out of Green Bay

During last season’s playoff run, Rodgers was seemingly apoplectic with head coach Matt LaFleur for his refusal to go for it on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers eight-yard line in the fourth quarter. Instead, LaFleur opted to kick the field goal and leaned on his defense to get the ball back. That, of course, never happened.

Despite his shortcomings this year, Rodgers is still amongst the elite and is the prohibited favorite for league MVP honors. Considering his stature, Jordan is convinced that if Rodgers found himself in the black and gold, immediate power over the franchise would be bestowed upon him.

“I’m not sure what kind of access top-tier quarterbacks get,” continued Jordan. “I’m a defensive end, I just worry about hitting the next quarterback. But quarterbacks usually have a little more executive say than said defensive players.”
