The New Orleans Saints and four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Jordan will be contractually tied for the next five seasons, ESPN reportedTuesday (June 11).

With a contract that currently runs through the 2020 season, the sides agreed on a deal that extends through the 2023 season. The three-year, $52.5 million extension has a maximum value of $55.5 million and includes $42 million in guaranteed earnings, the network reported.

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.
