The New Orleans Saints signed the star pass rusher to a three-year extension that will keep him wearing the fleur-de-lis through the 2023 season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports.

It now looks all but certain that Cameron Jordan will retire with the Saints.

The details: The extension is reportedly worth $52.5 million with a maximum of 55.5 million that includes $42 million in guarantees.

The eight-year NFL veteran first came to the Saints as a first-round selected player in the 2011 NFL Draft, and the new contract would further secure his career standing with the Saints.

BBC scraps universal free TV licences for over-75s
Asking pensioners to pay for a television licence will "not solve the real long-term issues facing the BBC", a DUP MP has said. Campaign groups condemned the decision. "This is an extra tax on older folk who might not have the cash to pay it".

Jordan posted 12 sacks in 2018 and has reached the double-digit sack mark in four of his eight National Football League campaigns.

The next big extension for the Saints could be with wideout Michael Thomas, who has a contract set to expire after the upcoming season.

He's a four-time Pro Bowler, including each of the last two years, and was first-team All-Pro in 2017; he was second-team All-Pro last year. I'm here for what happened", he continued, "and for what happened, we have to find a way to be better.

Considering that Jordan and Thomas are two pillars of the team on each side of the ball and there are many other contracts coming down the pipeline, it makes sense for the Saints to get out in front of as many deals as possible.
