The New Orleans Saints and Jordan have agreed on a contract extension through the 2020 season. Jordan, who was New Orleans' first of two first-round draft choices in 2011, was entering the final season of his rookie contract. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel on Tuesday confirmed the five-year extension, first reported by FOX Sports. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Jordan has 29 sacks and five forced fumbles in his career, including a single-season high 12 1/2 sacks in 2013. Last season, his sack total dipped to 7 1/2 as New Orleans' defense struggled as a whole, ranking 31st in the NFL.
