Cameron Jordan on Saints' three-year playoff drought: 'Maybe a culture shock needs to happen'

Cameron Jordan has been there for New Orleans' lows, highs and back again.

The defensive end has spent all 13 of his NFL seasons with the Saints and reached the playoffs in six of those years, but his team is currently mired in its second of two separate three-year postseason droughts since Jordan joined up as a 2011 first-rounder.

Mickey Loomis' tenure goes back even further. In his January end-of-season news conference to close out his 22nd year as general manager, Loomis admitted the team and staff has "gotten a little too comfortable" over the last few years, and that he wants to "make it uncomfortable."

The implication was that New Orleans' culture requires a change to get back to winning, something Jordan addressed during Super Bowl Week while speaking on the Around the NFL podcast, Bobby Kownack of reports.

"I've learned to not put my GM hat on," Jordan said. "I've played this game and it never worked out well. … You learn to shut the hell up and let the up top do what they're supposed to do. They're supposed to want more. We're three years dry of the playoffs. Maybe a culture shock needs to happen.

"I think there's a core group of our players that push positivity, whatever it is, and in fact I loved our locker room this year. But if our locker room isn't winning at a high rate, things are going to have to shake. One day they're going to be like, 'Hey, Cam. Your time, bud.' And I'll be like, hey, I hope the Saints keep on winning. Whatever it takes. I just want the Saints to win."
