The Saints should be excited about what Cam Jordan and Kenny Vaccaro could have to offer this season after emerging as stars last year.
While all preseason caveats should be applied, both players popped several times during Friday night’s 31-24 win over the Tennessee Titans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Jordan did not put much on the stat sheet, finishing with one sack and one tackle, but the film from the game tells a different story — one where Jordan served as a disruptive force for the Titans’ offensive line.
His sack was one of the more impressive plays of the night and illustrated why Jordan shouldn’t settle for a repeat of last season’s 12.5 sacks.
On the play in question, Jordan was rushing off right side of the line and was initially blocked by left tackle Michael Roos. Guard Andy Levitre then came over to assist. Quarterback Jake Locker believed he had a running lane, but Tennessee needed more forces.
