The official measurement ledger from the NFL Combine for the 2011 draft class posts "not available" as the listed wingspan for Cam Jordan.

Probably, accurate, because neither the NFL nor the New Orleans Saints when they drafted Jordan, possibly could have forecast the reach that the three-time All-Pro would have on and off the field.

The latest entry on Jordan's expansive ledger of giving back came Monday afternoon, with the announcement of the partnership of his God Iz Love foundation with Crescent City Corps. CCC is a New Orleans-based non-profit that equips police officers with leadership development and community engagement training to new first responders and law enforcement officers with a focus on racial equity, community engagement, and positive social change.

After a successful pilot program with 10 officers in 2019, the program will expand to train more than 80 New Orleans Police Department officers in the next two years, with Jordan committing more than $100,000 to its funding.

Jordan said last summer's national unrest led to him seeking a way to make an impact in addition to the countless hours of community service he already provides.

Fantastic Athletic article with Ireland on the draft. Also, we didn’t want to trade up for Mac

Love this blurb on defensive ends. Makes so much sense now.

“ We’re not this old Dwight Freeney, bend-the-edge type guy. We’re not that. That’s not the way we play defense. We’re going to get our hands in the quarterback’s face. We’re going to take that tackle, we’re going to press him right back into the quarterback’s lap. And we’re going to play with speed and power. And then just when you think we only bring power, he’s got the athleticism to get around you, just like Marcus (Davenport) and just like Cam (Jordan).”

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan will finance expansion of the New Orleans Police Department’s racial sensitivity training program. The goal over the next two years is to help 80 officers confront and overcome biases.

Jordan announced the $120,000 donation to the effort on Monday, Amie Just of The Times-Picayune reports.

The nonprofit Crescent City Corps will offer 40 hours of instruction to participating officers on topics such as racial equity, responding to the effects of trauma and leadership development. In a trail run in 2019, 10 NOPD officers underwent training in the program...

The Carolina Panthers nabbed LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. in the second round of the 2021 NFL draft, and the New Orleans Saints appear to have played a role in that decision.

BYU offensive tackle Brady Christensen had been the Panthers' likely target at No. 59, according to a dispatch from Panthers team reporter Darrin Gantt, but a phone call changed that plan. That call, reportedly, relayed a tip that Marshall would be the Saints' selection at No. 60.

The Panthers, who went on the clock a pick earlier, changed course and selected the former LSU wide receiver. The Saints, who...

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan announced Monday that he will finance the expansion of a racial sensitivity training program for New Orleans police officers, with the aim of helping 80 cops confront and overcome biases over the next two years.

Jordan decided to donate $120,000 to the effort after watching racial justice demonstrations rage last year in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis cop who has since been convicted of murder.

The expansion will allow the nonprofit Crescent City Corps to offer 40 hours of instruction to participating officers on topics...

Bruce Arians talks 'hard' decision to move on from Jameis Winston

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did something rare following the 2019 NFL season, parting ways with their franchise’s all-time leader in every major passing category following a 5,000-yard season.

Jameis Winston had just become only the eighth player in NFL history to throw for that many yards in a single season, leading the league with 5,109 yards and finishing second with 33 touchdown passes.

He was also still just 26 years old, finishing his rookie contract after being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

But despite entering his prime and being the most prolific passer in team...

With their 2021 salary cap situation settled, where do the Saints stand for 2022?

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. With lucrative contract extensions worked out between the NFL and its broadcasting partners, the salary cap is going to the moon — but not until 2023. That means another lean year is in store for the Saints and every other team as they work towards salary cap compliance next year.

It wasn’t easy, but the Saints were able to reach cap compliance in 2021 by cutting costs throughout their roster, and they are worse off for it. It’s going to introduce new hurdles for them to overcome by rushing rookies, second-year pros, and career backups into...

Over the past several days since Adam Schefter's report on the riff between league MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, the speculation for his landing spots are rampant - even in New Orleans.

A few prominent media outlets have listed New Orleans as a destination for Aaron Rodgers should the Packers agree on trading their superstar quarterback.

The Saints have a looming quarterback competition between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. Head coach Sean Payton will allow both players to battle, earn, and become the heir to Drew Brees' spot as the starter.

Only the National Football League can make an event as mundane as the announcement of next season’s schedule appointment television.

We’ve known now for nearly two weeks that the league’s 2021 schedule will be announced Wednesday night. TV broadcasts on NFL Network and ESPN2 will do the unveiling, though teams can reportedly jump the gun by 15 minutes prior to the 7 p.m. CDT reveal.

Just as Saints fans are getting ready for 2021 with a new quarterback for the first time in a decade and a half, so is the group of NFL employees charged with compiling the 272-game league schedule.

The Athletic's NFL power rankings put the Saints in 3rd place in the NFC South

The Saints have taken a lot of hits this offseason, but are they really trailing multiple rivals in pursuit of their fifth consecutive NFC South title? The Athletic’s Sheil Kapadia says so, having slotted New Orleans all the way down at No. 19 in their latest NFL power rankings:

It’s true that the Saints are running with a thin receiving corps and a new quarterback (maybe two), but this is a team that went 8-1 with Brees watching from the sidelines over the last two years. They have a winning formula and still have the top-end talent to compete with anyone. It’s up to their rookie draft...

Identifying the 4 biggest positions of need for the Saints after the draft

Heading in to the 2021 NFL Draft, the Saints had a few fairly obvious positions of need: cornerback, linebacker, and wide receiver. Now that the 2021 NFL Draft is in the books, are the Saints set at those positions for 2021? Not exactly.

With the Saints first pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, they selected Houston defensive end Payton Turner to replace some of what was lost with Trey Hendrickson departing in free agency. It was a move that perplexed many, not necessarily because of a later draft grade on Turner, but because of the other bodies the Saints had the position. Opposite Pro Bowl DE...

Saints get high-upside project in cornerback Paulson Adebo

Coming into the draft, the New Orleans Saints had two major pressing needs. Linebacker and cornerback. They addressed those needs on Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft by landing Pete Werner and Paulson Adebo. The latter is a cornerback from Stanford.

Adebo is a prototypical CB build, standing at 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds. At Stanford, he was predominately a left outside corner, making him a strong complement to Marshon Lattimore, who generally mans the right side of the field. Adebo has said he prefers man coverage, which could be what drew the Saints to him.
