And just like that Morstead is named NFC special teams player of the week...

When Falcons punter Dustin Colquitt ended up on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Atlanta needed a replacement.

The club turned to a former longtime division rival in Thomas Morstead, who had spent 12 seasons kicking against them with the Saints. Morstead had been with the Jets earlier this season but was released on Nov. 8.

The move turned out to be a good one for the Falcons, who got a strong performance from Morstead in a 21-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday — so strong that he’s been named NFC special teams player of the week.

Morstead averaged 44.8 yards per punt in the victory, dropping three of his five punts inside the 20-yard line.

NFC Special Teams Player Of The Month for December...

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/12/30/thomas-morstead-named-nfc-special-teams-player-of-the-month/

Thomas Morstead began the 2021 season without a team, since the Saints released him in early 2021 after 12 seasons.

Then Morstead signed with the Jets to fill in for an injured Braden Mann, averaging 48.2 yards on his 23 punts in seven games.

After Mann’s return, New York cut Morstead. So he was available when Falcons punter Dustin Colquitt had to be placed on the COVID-19 list and missed two games. But when Colquitt returned, Morstead had been performing so well that Atlanta elected to keep him.

It’s paid off, as Morstead has now been named NFC special teams player of the month for December.

In four games last month, Morstead averaged 49 yards on his 11 punts with six getting downed inside the 20-yard line.

Overall, Morstead has averaged 47.7 yards on his 16 punts in five games with Atlanta.

Got to admit, I worried he might be done when the Jets let him go. I stand corrected.

Morstead is awesome.
