Longtime New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan has been with the team since he was a first-round pick back in 2011 and is still playing for the Saints today. But it sounds like the team already has plans to honor him before his career is even over.

This week, Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis made it clear that while Jordan is still a valuable member of the team even at age 33, when he ultimately decides to retire he will have a permanent place in the team’s  Ring of Honor, celebrating his Saints’ career.

“He’s going to be able to play for us as long as he wants to and as long as he can. Then when the time comes, his name will be up in that Ring of Honor and the Hall of Fame and all those other accolades that come with a player of his stature,” Loomis said on SiriusXM NFL Radio according to Rod Walker of the Times-Picayune.

Jordan has played in 192 games for the Saints throughout his career, which ranks fourth in franchise history. This season, he’s set to pass two more names on that all-time list and will be behind only Drew Brees in terms of all-time appearances with the team.
