Tuesday, August 2, 2011
METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with their top draft pick, defensive end Cameron Jordan.
Jordan's agent, Doug Hendrickson of Octagon, confirms Tuesday's deal. No terms have been released.
The 6-foot-4, 297-pound Jordan, who is the son of former Pro Bowl tight end Steve Jordan, was taken 24th overall out of California.
Jordan is the last of the Saints' six draft picks to agree to terms.
As a senior at Cal, Jordan was credited with 62 tackles, 12.5 stops for losses and 5.5 sacks while forcing three fumbles. He also was named a first-team Pac-10 last year.
The Saints drafted Jordan with the hope of bolstering a pass rush that finished tied for 18th in the NFL in sacks last season.
