Per Schefter, the deal is worth $52.5 million with a max value of $55.5 million. Jordan will receive more than $42 million in guaranteed money with the extension.
Jordan was set to make $8 million in base salary, which would have ranked 22nd among 4-3 defensive ends. He said in May his goal was to be with the Saints for the rest of his career, per ESPN’s Mike Triplett.
Jordan, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2011. He was entering the fifth year of a six-year, $61.969 million contract that includes $33.469 million guaranteed that he signed back in 2015.
In 2018, Jordan appeared in all 16 games for the Saints and recorded 49 tackles, 12 sacks, a forced fumble, one recovery and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated Jordan as the No. 5 edge defender out of 103 qualifying players.
