Saints DE Cameron Jordan getting two-year, $27.5M extension

METAIRIE, La. -- The Saints and defensive end Cameron Jordan have agreed to a two-year, $27.5 million guaranteed contract extension that ties him to New Orleans through the 2025 season, his agents, Doug Hendrickson and CJ LaBoy, told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Friday.

Jordan, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and the Saints' franchise leader in career sacks, is getting the largest contract on average and guarantees for any defensive player in NFL history at the age of 34.

A 2011 first-round pick by the Saints, Jordan last signed an extension in 2019 -- a three-year, $42 million guaranteed deal that ran through the 2023 season.
