New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan will be playing in a familiar part of the country during Sunday’s Divisional Round showdown against the Minnesota Vikings. But while Jordan was born in Minneapolis and spent the early part of his life there, it’s not quite a homecoming. His reasoning for that is quite funny.
Cameron Jordan on if returning to Minnesota is a homecoming: "I spent the first 6 years of my life there, but my first kiss was in Arizona."

Jordan has been on something of a roll since his team’s Wild Card Weekend victory against the Carolina Panthers. He sent Carolina quarterback Cam Newton a bottle of wine and dubbed Panthers’ tackle Matt Kalil “Speedbump McGee.”
Jordan’s father, Steve Jordan, enjoyed a 13-year NFL career, playing for the Vikings the whole time, and making six Pro Bowls. So, regardless of where he first locked lips, Sunday’s game will pit Jordan against a team familiar to him and his family.
