The night Cameron Jordan found out he had been selected to his third Pro Bowl, one of his first comments was, “Halfway to my dad.”

Steve Jordan set an awfully high standard as a six-time Pro Bowl tight end for the Minnesota Vikings from 1982-1994. But on Sunday, he’ll be the proud papa who is probably apologizing to fans around him in Minnesota’s U.S. Bank Stadium for the way his 6-foot-4, 287-pound son is wreaking havoc on his former team.

Cam has been a great player in the NFL for a while now, but he went into monster mode for the New Orleans Saints this season, being named a first-team All-Pro for the first time with 13 sacks and 11-12 pass defenses. He reached yet another level in last week’s 31-26 wild-card win over the Carolina Panthers, in which he secured the victory by manhandling two blockers in the final minute and forcing an intentional grounding penalty by Cam Newton.



“I’m thrilled for him,” Steve said. “My wife and I always pray for our kids, and as a parent you just want your kids in a position where they can flourish. And he’s so competitive ...

“I’m excited for him because having been a former player, of course, and having played in some playoff games and knowing the intensity of it, it’s just awesome that my son, who enjoys that competition, is gonna have an opportunity to experience that.”

Steve joked that people keep asking him which team he is going to root for, and his first response is “Everybody.” But he acknowledges that “blood is thicker than water.”
