After a season of too many losses, the New Orleans Saints and one of their top players got a victory this week.

Star edge rusher Cameron Jordan just won his appeal for a fine from this season.

In the team’s Week 13 loss, the NFL accused Jordan of faking an injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Apparently, their evidence didn’t hold up when Jordan challenged them to prove that he faked an injury.

The Saints star appealed the $50,000 fine and won, so the fine was rescinded.

It was always a bit of an odd move by the league.

Jordan missed a handful of plays after suffering a legitimate injury during the game. We all know that if he was healthy enough to return sooner, then he would have.

The Saints desperately needed Jordan on the field this season. He wouldn’t take plays off simply to try to get some sort of competitive advantage. It just would not add up for New Orleans.

After the NFL accused him after the incident, Jordan felt disrespected. He knew he had done nothing wrong and had the proof to back that up.

For the Saints, it is a small off-season win. Jordan saved some money and got to laugh at the NFL once more after the ruling today.
