Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan has cashed in with a new contract.
Jordan and the Saints have agreed to a five-year deal with $33.8 million in guaranteed money, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports. The deal includes $27 million in the first two years and a total value of “up to” $60 million, according to the report.
Jordan was heading into the final season of his contract and was scheduled to count $7 million against the Saints’ cap this year. The addition of five years to his deal means he’s now under contract to the Saints through 2020.
The 25-year-old Jordan was the Saints’ first-round draft pick in 2011 and hasn’t missed a game in his four seasons in New Orleans. Now the Saints are counting on him to play out his prime in New Orleans.
