"This is the year I get a Super Bowl," Jordan told NFL Network's Lindsay Rhodes on NFL Total Access.
Jordan -- who has set a personal goal for 16 sacks this season -- elaborated on his view of the future.
"We have a multitude of wide receivers that are hungry to make a name for themselves. To even talk about defense, we've upgraded in a couple different positions. We brought in a ball-hawk in Jairus Byrd, Kenny (Vaccaro) is going into his second year. The defensive line, I can't say enough about my defensive line. From Akiem Hicks to Junior Galette to Tyrunn Walker, you can name any, Brodrick Bunkley, my D-line is phenomenal. I love my guys."
Continuity is also a welcome development for the Saints defense, which had three defensive coordinators over a three-year stretch Rob Ryan took a grip on the gig.
"Coordinator for the second year," Jordan said about expectations of the defense. "That's a first in my stint with the Saints to have a coordinator come back."
