The NFL released it's all-decade team Monday and 3 former/current Saints landed on the list.

Defensive end Cam Jordan, offensive guard Jahri Evans and running back/punt returner Darren Sproles were all selected to the team.

Jordan, who was drafted by the Saints in 2011, is a 3x all-pro, 5x pro-bowler and is currently 2nd in franchise history with 87 career sacks. In 2019, Jordan had a career high 15.5 sacks, which ranked 3rd in the NFL, to go with 53 tackles.

Evans was drafted by the Saints in 2006 and played 11 seasons in New Orleans. He was a 6x pro-bowler, 4x all-pro and a key member of the Saints 2009 Super Bowl winning team.

Sproles arrived in NOLA in 2011, and was a key cog to the Saints offense and special teams during his 3 years in NOLA. Sproles was selected to the all-decade team as an offensive flex player and kick returner, making him the 4th player in NFL history to be chosen for multiple positions.

Most notably missing from this list is quarterback Drew Brees. Former Patriots QB Tom Brady and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers got the nod over him.

Brees finished the decade leading the NFL with 46,770 passing yards, 345 TDs, 4,170 completions and a 69.5% completion percentage during that span. Not to mention, he is now the all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns in NFL history.
