4. Cameron Jordan

The only player to appear on this list who isn’t going to be a free agent after this year is Cameron Jordan. He’s slated to hit free agency following the 2023 season meaning he has two more seasons with the team that drafted him in 2011.

It’s wild that Jordan has been in the league for as long as he has and even wilder that he continues to perform at such a high level. Up until this past year, he hadn’t missed a single game and the one game he did miss in 2021 was because he tested positive for COVID-19 and had to sit out.

Before that game, Jordan had been off to a slow start but that missed game lit a fire under him. He finished the year with 12.5 seasons despite not having his first sack of the year until Week 6.

Jordan is entering his age-33 season and will be hitting free agency when he’s 34 so the Saints wouldn’t want to give him a long extension by any means but if he puts together another impressive season this year, extending him is definitely something to consider.
