Appearing on Wednesday’s edition of NFL AM, defensive end Cameron Jordan was asked what player he’d pick in the first round of May’s draft, but the Saints’ Pro Bowler declined to answer, saying he trusted his team’s front office no matter what it decided to do.
“So you’re saying they can do whatever they want as long as they’re not getting a starting defensive end?” host Eric Davis said to Jordan.
Jordan replied, “I mean, they can go get him. That’s all part of it.” However, playfully lowering his voice, he then added, “You just don’t want to draft somebody that might not see the field.”
Jordan finished fifth in the NFL and first on the Saints with 12.5 quarterback sacks. He had 47 combined tackles.
Carr to retire
Chris Carr, who played 11 games for the Saints in 2013 as a backup defensive back, will retire from the NFL this week, he announced via Twitter on Wednesday morning. He broke up four passes, had one interception and made 16 tackles (11 solo) for New Orleans.
Carr also spent three seasons each in Oakland and Baltimore, and he had one campaign in Tennessee.
“It’s been a great ride!” tweeted Carr, who then thanked his hometown (Reno, Nev.), his high school (Robert McQueen), his college (Boise State) and every NFL organization of which he was a part.
About New Orleans, he tweeted: “It was a splendid experience playing for the Saints; rich culture, great food, and extremely (supportive) fan base.”
