Saints defensive end Cam Jordan took time to visit with Bobby Hebert and me on Sports Talk this week. We asked the former Cal Bear if he was surprised that the Saints decided to bring in a new defensive coach.
“I’m used to having to switch. This is my third defensive coordinator with the Saints and I had two new coordinators in my last two years in college so I’ve had a new coach in each of the last five seasons,” Jordan said.
Jordan had a better season in his second season with the Saints. During the 2012 season Cam recorded 67 total tackles and had eight sacks. Jordan also forced three fumbles in 2012 to go along with three defended passes.
So what did Cam think about the Saints' 2012 7-9 record?
“The defense had a hard time learning the scheme in the first eight games, and then we started to pick things up, but it was too late,” Jordan said.
Jordan was the Saints #1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, as the Black and Gold selected Cam with the 24th overall pick back in April of 2011.
