1. Cameron Jordan
The only player on the New Orleans Saints roster that has a clear-cut path to the Pro Football Hall of Fame is defensive end Cameron Jordan. The former first-round pick has been with the Saints for the entirety of his 11-year career and has only missed one game in that entire span.
Jordan, as odd as it sounds, can be most compared to long-time Saints quarterback Drew Brees in a lot of ways. Jordan doesn’t just play football in the city of New Orleans, but he embodies himself in the culture of the city and spends a ton of time aiding the community, as Brees did. Jordan is not just impressive off the field either.
Cameron Jordan has tallied 107 career sacks, which ranks third in the NFL amongst active players. Jordan has been voted to seven Pro Bowls and has been named a First-Team All-Pro once and a Second-Team All-Pro twice. Jordan, like Tyrann Mathieu, was also named to the NFL’s 2010 All-Decade Team, ranking him amongst the best at his position for a ten-year span.
Cameron Jordan has logged six double-digit sack seasons and ranks number five amongst active NFL players in career tackles for a loss with 137. Cameron Jordan, in a lot of ways, is the face of the New Orleans Saints on defense and he is seemingly a lock to be in Hall of Fame contention when he calls it quits.
