The New Orleans Saints were on a bye in Week 14, but that didn't stop them from generating headlines. The NFL announced hefty fines against the organization, coaches and veteran Cam Jordan this weekend after alleging the defensive end faked an injury during the team's loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Monday.

It's safe to say Jordan isn't happy with how he's being talked about after the news broke.

Jordan told reporters, "If this was a civil lawsuit, I’d countersue for triple the amount," when asked for his thoughts on the claims being made against him. The veteran also noted that he even had an MRI after the Monday night defeat, and his foot "ruined" his bye week since it required regular treatment.

Jordan's strong response to the discourse around him shows he's upset about his integrity being questioned. The organization has also spoken out against the NFL's decision, revealing Jordan was diagnosed with an "acute mid-foot sprain in his left foot" and stating it will appeal the punishment.

This drama will certainly follow the Saints as they prepare for their Week 15 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Hopefully Jordan is able to take out his frustrations on Atlanta's offense and help lead New Orleans to another win in this bitter rivalry.
