Former Saints punter Thomas Morstead signs with Jets


It appears Thomas Morstead has found a new team.

The New York Jets have signed the former New Orleans Saints punter after working him out on Tuesday, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The Jets were in need of a punter after Braden Mann sustained a knee injury on Sunday which will keep him out at least a month.

Morstead, 35, is a veteran punter who spent his entire 12-year career with the Saints and earned a Pro Bowl honor in 2012.

The Saints released Morstead in March to open up room under the salary cap.

Morstead will be reunited with a couple of other former teammates in Sheldon Rnaking and Justin Hardee Sr., the latter of whom is a first-year captain with the Jets.
