I would not say quite yet but we getting there .
He was in the same draft as JJ Watt but if you take the entire career of both players to this point I would say Cam Jordan was a better pick then JJ .

I know people in the national media will disagree and maybe even some people on SaintsReport but the guy is a monster and most importantly durable .

So overall Cam>JJ

If you don't count his first season when he only got 1 sack his average sack haul is 10.5. So if he plays another six years at that pace then he'll end up in the top 5 all-time sack leaders with around 150.

Naw, we have it on Saint Kamara's authority that he's a low IQ player.

When and if he gets his 100th career sack, that's when he kind of enters the conversation.

Fair or not, for most DE's, LB's once they reach the 100 career sack plateau, their HOF chances enter sort of the borderline phase, or they get close to 100 sacks like Warren Sapp did or JJ Watt currently is at 97.5 career sacks, some NFL writers enter them in the discussion phase and maybe their chances improve or maybe they stagnate. Cameron Jordan is probably the best Saints DE or D-linemen since Wayne Martin or the most dominant since Laroi Glover two decades ago.

For an NFL DE, LB, reaching and exceeding 100 career sacks is the equivalent of an NFL QB throwing for over 50,000 career passing yards. Now Matt Ryan and Philip Rivers already have or will soon pass this hallowed individual statistical barrier, maybe in a couple of years if he stays healthy Matthew Stafford will cross this barrier, too: but which one of these three QB's really have a legitimate shot at making the HOF?

Well he is already in the Saints Hall of Fame no doubt. It's going to be tough for him with a small market team and his last name not being Brees. If he continues to do what he is doing the next couple of years yes he should, will he? Idk east and west coast bias is real.

Longhorn, realistically, if Cam Jordan finishes his career in and around the 105-100 career sacks total, are his HOF chances good or at least better than borderline, which essentially means most NFL writers and pollsters are divided on whether he really deserves it. 105, 106, 107 career sacks that's actually 20 less sacks career-wise overall then Rickey Jackson and look how long and strenuous it took for him to get in.

Sam Mills still hasn't gotten in and the way he left New Orleans for Carolina before their 1995 expansion season and how he's highly respected and revered by Panthers fans and players today even though his best years were with us, here in New Orleans, kind of irks a few Saints fans even 15 years since his death. The national, mainstream sports media for such a long time liked to pretend or inferred Mills best days were in Charlotte and we were some also-rans hasn't helped at times. Sam Mills was a great, legendary defensive player for two NFL teams but for two completely seperate reasons and the best, most sincerest way, the only honest way, is to recognize his contributions from that specific mindset.

Hes currently sitting at 81 sacks. And the season isnt done yet. He could legitimately break 100 next season or early the following season.

Actually Fury, with his 4 sacks tonight, Cameron Jordan's career sack total currently sits at 85, and IIRC, I think with his 13.5 sacks, this might be his highest, single-season sack total ever.

Cam had 13.5 sacks on the season after the 4 tonight setting his season career high surpassing the 2017 season when he had 13. With 85 on his career he overtook Wayne Martin and is now is 2nd behind Rickey Jackson for the Saints all time sack total.
