NEW ORLEANS — It is a big day for news about the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Sean Payton, who coached the Saints to its first and only Super Bowl win, will exit retirement and lead the Denver Broncos according to a story on Nola.com.
Payton is still under contract with the Saints for two more years so the Broncos will have to acquire him through draft picks. He retired at the end of last season.
Jordan going to Pro-Bowl
New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan has been named to the Pro Bowl Games, it was announced today by the National Football League. Jordan replaces San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa who is unable to participate due to injury.
Jordan’s eight Pro Bowl nods are the most for a defensive player in club history and second overall. His six consecutive selections trail only QB Drew Brees (seven from 2008-2014) and T Willie Roaf (seven from 1994-2000) for first in team record books. In 2022, Jordan started all 16 games he appeared in and registered 66 tackles (40 solo), 8.5 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, 13 quarterback hits, two passes defensed and two forced fumbles. He finished the season with 115.5 career sacks, breaking the franchise record for takedowns in the team’s Week 17 win at Philadelphia.
