Saints News, 4/25/14: Cam Jordan Disses Atlanta Falcons' Offensive Line

New, comments

"It's OK, we can start off with that road game, get that road game win, come back after two games. ... (Wide receiver Julio Jones) will be back healthy and that's always a steam roller you have to worry about," Jordan said. "I'm sure they did something with their o-line, hopefully, I don't know if you could call that an o-line last year. Roadblocks. Speedbumps."
