Cam Jordan dropped by Morris Jeff Community school to urge kids to pick up a book and read. The defensive end was sporting his jersey from the Pro Bowl he attended for the first time this year. He answered a bunch of students’ questions ranging from who is the best player on the Saints (he pointed at the #94 on his jersey) to how much does the average NFL player make. Kids sure learn the value of a dollar fast!
After the Q&A session Jordan was challenged to a dance-off by a teacher and reluctantly accepted.
Of course, he and his crew would go on to win.
Following the fun and games, Jordan was asked if it’s a relief going into this season not having to worry about his contract, since the 5th year option on his rookie contract was exercised by the team.
"I don't know if I've ever been worried about it," Jordan said.
"Honestly, I'm just focused on trying to perform for my team and put us in the best position to be a winning team. That's what’s really important to me, is to get a Super Bowl ring. Some of the older guys have one, and I'm jealous."
Then, when asked about opening the season against the hated Atlanta Falcons, Jordan took a playful jab at the dirty Birds and their putrid offensive line from last year.
“We start over there this year right?” Cam said smiling. “That’s OK; we’ll start off with that road game win. I’m sure they've done something with their o-line hopefully. I don’t know if you call them an o-line last year
...roadblocks ...speed bumps.”
