New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced today that the club has agreed to terms with rookie defensive end Cameron Jordan, the Saints' top pick in the 2011 NFL Draft (24th overall).

The 6-4, 287-pound native of Chandler, Arizona was a four-year letterman at the University of California who played both left and right defensive end in a 3-4 scheme and appeared in 50 games with 33 starts.

Jordan ended his collegiate career with 175 tackles (88 solo), 16.5 sacks for minus-89 yards, 34 tackles for a loss of 122 yards, four forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, an interception and five pass deflections.  

Jordan is the ninth defensive end picked by the Saints in the first round and the first since Sean Payton became head coach in 2006. He is the son of Steve Jordan, who played college football at Brown, then for 13 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, where he was a six-time Pro Bowl selection, recording 498 receptions for 6,307 yards and 28 touchdowns.
