Saints News, 6/3/15: How Risky Is the Cameron Jordan Mega-Deal?

New, comments

From Mike Triplett: As much as the Saints are rolling the dice that Jordan will bounce back to peak form this season, they also would have been taking a risk by letting him hit the open market next spring. For a defense that needs all the help it can get, Jordan is the type of player the Saints couldn’t afford to lose.
