New Orleans Saints’ Cameron Jordan to pay huge fine for penalties
The defensive end went a little too far in the team’s game against the Panthers
The NFL continues to be severe in guaranteeing a fair game takes place in every match and after last week’s games, some fines were assigned to a few players. One of these was New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan, who will have to pay a total of $38,602 for committing two personal fouls during the team’s game against Carolina Panthers last week.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Saturday the penalties Jordan is facing. First, he struck Kyle Allen in the face mask and this was after the whistle. He did admit to this mistake, but it wouldn’t be the last. Later, Jordan gave an explanation by stating he was just trying to force a fumble out of the Panther’s quarterback while he was being spun to the ground by Demario Davis. Even if Jordan admitted his guilt, he also recognized that hurting the team with these nonsensical mistakes is not the best and he did promise to compensate for his mistake in his next performance.
During last Thursday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, Jordan really made up for his mistakes and turned things around. He set a new personal record for him during single games as he was responsible for four out of the nine sacks of the evening for his team. So far, he has on his count 13.5 sacks this season alone and he is currently in the second position for the Saints record with a total of 85 sacks. Now he only has to defeat Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Rickey Jackson who has 115.
