New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan's best quote of the 2021 season:
“Most guys play hard, and most guys don’t quit on plays, and most guys aren’t lazy. But Cam has the ability to rush with the same energy on the 60th snap as he does on the first. That is something that there are not many people that can do that. Cam’s always been that way. And it’s that way in practice, it’s that way in games. He just wears people out, I think. I think most people are unable to match his energy, and you couple that with all the skills that he actually has as a pass rusher, and you start doing interviews about the 100th sack in a career.” Saints assistant offensive line coach Zach Strief
