New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan hasn’t announced a retirement or anything, but his career as a player is clearly nearing an end. Jordan turns 35 this offseason, and he just finished his 13th season in the NFL. Entering year 14, Jordan has just two years remaining on his contract with the Saints, the team he’s played his entire career with.

Jordan is on a mission to get the most out of those two seasons. In a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, the veteran defensive lineman made it clear that his only goal for the next two years is to get the Saints a Super Bowl. Jordan explained that with next season’s Super Bowl being in New Orleans, he’s going to do everything possible to make sure the Saints are apart of the game.

Cam Jordan focused on Saints winning Super Bowl

Jordan has had a successful career in his 13 seasons. He’s been to eight Pro Bowls, made three All-Pro teams, and was named to the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team. The one thing Jordan doesn’t have is a Super Bowl. He’s been a part of a lot of winning teams in New Orleans, but the only Super Bowl in franchise history came in the 2009 season, two years before Jordan was drafted.

The Saints will have to get to work if Jordan is going to get a ring before he hangs up the cleats. New Orleans is coming off a 9-8 season, and not many people are expecting the team to be a serious contender in 2024. However, no one really knows what will happen in a given season.

What is clear is that Cam Jordan needs to be better if the Saints are going to be better. He played through an ankle injury last season, and it showed in his lack of production. Jordan played in all 17 games, but he recorded just two sacks, 43 tackles, three for a loss, and six quarterback hits. The lackluster season snapped Jordan’s Pro Bowl streak after making it the previous six years. If he can get back to the level that he played at for the majority of his career, he’ll have a chance to make the Pro Bowl, and more importantly, the Super Bowl.
