Saints News, 2/29/16: Cameron Jordan Gets Arthroscopic Surgery on Back

Saints' Defensive End Cameron Jordan got arthroscopic surgery on his back. The injury is not expected to hamper him in 2016. The Saints have also taken an interest in former Rams MLB James Laurainitis, and also appear to be taking another look at Eastern Kentucky edge rusher Noah Spence. Delvin Breaux appeared at a Children's Museum fundraiser as a headliner, and the Combine wrapping up has yielded results for several positions of need for the Saints, including WR, LB and DB.
