Most of the Saints’ player movement this offseason has been outgoing, as they tried to get themselves into position to fix their defense.
But they do want to keep one of their key defensive players.
According to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints have been in discussions to extend defensive end Cameron Jordan’s contract.
The Saints picked up his fifth-year option worth nearly $7 million, but would like to get him locked up long-term.
Jordan struggled a bit last year, with just 7.5 sacks after 12.5 the season before, when he made the Pro Bowl.
