The New Orleans Saints announced Monday that DE Cameron Jordan has been named to this year's Pro Bowl.
Jordan has been named to the roster as an injury replacement for Patriots DE Chandler Jones. The selection marks the second time in Jordan's career that he has earned Pro Bowl honors after being named a Pro Bowler in 2013.
In 2015, Jordan started all 16 games, posting 61 tackles (39 solo), 10 sacks, seven passes defensed, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. The 2015 season was the second time in his career that he has posted a double-digit sack total, becoming the ninth Saint to have multiple double-digit sack seasons.
Jordan's 10 sacks in 2015 ranked 15th across the NFL and tied for sixth in the NFC.
During his career, Jordan has played among the NFL's elite ends. He has posted 39.0 sacks since he entered the NFL in 2011 and over the past four seasons is only the second player, joining Houston's J.J. Watt, to have 30 takedowns and 20 passes defensed.
Saints own an 20-8 record when Jordan corrals a signal-caller, and they boast a 7-0 mark when he tallies two or more sacks.
Through his five-year NFL career, the durable Jordan has not missed a game and has opened 65 consecutive contests, the fourth-longest streak among NFL defensive ends, while his streak of playing in 80 consecutive games is tied for fifth at the position league-wide.
