Six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady shocked the football world last month when he decided to leave the New England Patriots for a long-downtrodden Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad.

We have absolutely no idea how Brady’s tenure in Tampa Bay is going to go. He has more talent around him on offense. Though, the NFC South is also more talented in general than the AFC East.

In talking about his new division rival, Pro Bowl New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan had a rather interesting take. He’s both excited and not excited about facing Brady. The excitement comes in the form of more chances to hit the all-time great quarterback.

Jordan, 30, has made his impact on opposing signal callers during a brilliant nine-year NFL career. That includes 168 quarterback hits and 87 sacks. He’s coming off a 15.5-sack campaign for the Saints.

At this point, New Orleans still has to be seen as the favorites in the division. Brady heading to Tampa Bay does change the dynamic a lot in that regard.

It will be fun to see Brady go up against Drew Brees twice per season. It will also be fun to see Jordan get after the future Hall of Famer.
