Cam Jordan throws shade at Antonio Brown when asked about matchup
Despite the anticipation by many on his return to the field, Saints defensive end Cam Jordan clearly showed that he is not a fan of Brown and was straightforward when asked regarding their matchup, as per Pro Football Talk.
I asked Cam Jordan what he thought about facing Antonio Brown in Week Nine on @SNFonNBC. Said Jordan of Brown, "He's got to get to Week Nine."

After signing a one-year, league-minimum deal with the Bucs, the seven-time Pro Bowler could still be caught in a shaky situation for the remainder of the season. He is currently serving his eight-game suspension and still has to go to court regarding sexual assault allegations made against him.
Brown is slated to go to trial this coming December regarding the lawsuit filed against him by his former trainer, Brittney Taylor. The league can impose additional punishment to Brown based on any ruling in the case, which could eventually lead to him being cut from the Buccaneers roster.
Despite the uncertainty, the Saints will have their hands full if Brown manages to make it on the field against them. Through Week 7, the Saints have surrendered 15 passing touchdowns to opponents, the second-most in the NFL. With Bucs quarterback Tom Brady at the helm, his connection with the Central Michigan product could ultimately deal damage to the Saints in their matchup.
With all eyes set on him, the mercurial receiver is hoping to make the most out of the second opportunity given to him and aim to get his career back on track this time around.
