The New Orleans Saints have agreed to a five-year contract extension with defensive end Cameron Jordan that will pay him up to $60 million, according to multiple reports. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports was first to report the news, followed by Katherine Terrell of The Times-Picayune.
The deal includes $33.6 million in guaranteed money and $27 million over the next two seasons, Garafolo reports.
Jordan was entering the final year of his rookie contract. Since being drafted by the Saints in the first round in 2011, he has played every game and started all but one.
Jordan tweeted a picture of himself signing the contract.
Jordan was a Pro Bowl selection in 2013 after recording 12.5 sacks. He had 7.5 sacks and an interception last season.
