3. Cameron Jordan, EDGE
The New Orleans Saints had a season to forget, finishing 7-10. They spent the majority of the year with Andy Dalton under center and unless they make a move for a quarterback in the offseason, it might be time for them to start unloading players and begin a rebuild.
Should that happen, one of the most interesting names to watch would be Cameron Jordan. He has just one year remaining on his contract and while his cap hit is around $25 million, New Orleans would still be on the hook for $10 million of that.
Of course, there could be some negotiation as well, as we saw when the Cleveland Browns traded Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers, but whatever course they choose, Dallas could afford Jordan for one season.
Despite being 33 years old, Jordan is still playing at a high level. He had 66 tackles and 8.5 sacks this past season and just had 59 tackles and 12.5 sacks in 2021. Should the Cowboys bring him in, their defensive line would be incredibly strong with the 287-pound Jordan playing on one side and the 265-pound DeMarcus Lawrence on the other.
They also would be able to continue rotating in Sam Williams, who had a strong rookie campaign, since both starters would be over 30. And as for their No. 1 sack artist, Micah Parsons, he would be free to move around even more, which is when he’s at his best.
If Dallas ever wants to figure out how to beat San Francisco, they might need to take a page from their book and stockpile talent on the defensive line. Adding Jordan does exactly that.
