Re: Jordan contract details

-it is an extension, so he is inked for 6 years
-Jordan gets $33.5 mill guaranteed in next 2 years
-2015 cap hit is reduced by 2.8 mil (we now have around 4.2, depending on who actually makes the final roster)
-highest point of the contract is $8.8 mill in 2020
-worst part for Saints: $12.8 cap hit in 2016

Re: Jordan contract details

cut and paste time i guess

Cams' cap hits

2011 $1,405,709
2012 $1,757,136
2013 $2,108,564
2014 $2,459,991
2015 $4,169,000

new contract
Cap Hit - Dead Money
2016 $12,800,000 - $12,800,000
2017 $10,300,000 - $9,600,000
2018 $12,500,000 - $6,400,000
2019 $12,300,000 - $3,200,000
2020 $9,900,000

2016 Not sure if this has been adjusted yet with Cams numbers. so i am going with worse case here and say no. if it is we are dealing with reported cap numbers for 2016 ( - $1,140,832). over by a million. dam we mickey will have an easy off season. imagine the trees this will save from becoming pencils after the last few years.

worse case: we need to have 8 million under the cap. not too too bad. We have been dealing with worse. Pray for an unexpected bump in team revenue for a bit more breathing room. no really big ticket free agents to talk about (about 4 mill with the top 3). Another year of cuts and/or trade rumors?

2017 every one is a free agent lol. almost 40 million with just 7 top players. i like the 2 million built in cap space saving for this year.

2018 has a solid drop in dead money.

2019 seems to be the out year for the saints.

2020 is nice with no dead money involved. the usual great built in redo contract slot there.

all in all not a bad set up given the state of the escalting salary cap in the NFL. 2019 might be a bargain if all goes right.

Now Cam needs to step up and be the leader up front for this defense that this contract says he is to be.

Can Cameron Jordan become the emotional leader that Will Smith was to this team?

This a leaders contract. On the field, in the locker room, as well as a leader off the field.


right now we are reported to be $3,894,119 under the cap.

Re: Jordan contract details

He's being paid like an elite pass rusher. He needs to play like one. The bright side of the contract is that the Saints are paying someone for his upside and not past performance. Jordan is more likely to play up to this deal than a high priced over the hill free agent would.

Re: Jordan contract details

Losing Junior Galette will hurt less if Cam Jordan can get the pressure on the QB and seal the edge while still taking care of all his assignments. It's a tall order but that's what we're paying him all that money for. I'm pleased that Loomis didn't go full metal jacket on this contract. Someone seems to be having quite the impact on the Front Office and their decision making.

As long as he keeps getting better......even incrementally, then we have one less worry on defense. Heck, who knows he could even breakout with all the added pressure we're going to bring with the new and improved defense.
