Earlier today it was announced that Cam Jordan would be attending the 2016 Pro Bowl in Patriots DE Chandler Jones' stead. Back in December I'd written about how no Saints had been elected to the Pro Bowl. I wrote that Jordan was a snub, but that competition was fierce. And it is.
But to be a supply defensive end for the likes of Chandler Jones (12.5 sacks, 1 interception, 4 FF) and play alongside the likes of J.J. Watt, Khalil Mack, Ziggy Ansah, Michael Bennett and Muhammad Wilkerson...
I'm pretty happy about that. And hopefully he gets to play alongside Wilkerson a lot more over the coming years....
Guess I gotta do some quick packin... Slid in that thang on something slight..… https://t.co/k6xQQx0DxV— cameron jordan (@camjordan94) January 26, 2016
This is the second Pro Bowl for the 5th year player out of Cal. Jordan had 10 sacks this season as part of an otherwise bleh D; his second double-digit sack campaign as a pro.
DE Cam Jordan's appearance in Pro Bowl will ensure #Saints have a representative. Last time they were shut out was 2007.— Evan Woodbery (@TheSaintsBeat) January 26, 2016
Congrats to Cam! Here's to at least four more years of productivity up front!
