Saints News, 7/9/14: Cameron Jordan Aiming For 16 Sacks, Saints Super Bowl

New, comments

In a Tuesday interview with NFL Media's Amber Theoharis and Shaun O'Hara, Jordan said his goal is to increase his sack total to 16 in 2014. "I'd like to average one a game," Jordan said, "but what's really truly important is just the whole d-line getting after quarterbacks." Asked about being mentioned in the same breath with the game's premier pass rushers such as J.J. Watt, Von Miller and Robert Quinn, Jordan insisted that winning the Super Bowl is a higher priority. "I want a Super Bowl," Jordan emphasized. "I'm heading into my fourth year, I need it. And it's in Arizona this year. ... I'm from there, and I need it."
