3 free agents the Falcons should sign if they’re serious about the playoffs
It’s not often that a Falcons fan would advocate for a Saints legend but after the success that the Falcons had with the Lance Moore signing in 2016, it is difficult not to consider it to be well worth the revisit.
Alright, maybe that is not the most valid reason. One that should interest you is that in his seven games with the New York Jets, Morstead still looked like one of the top punters in the league. The Falcons have had their struggles at the position, both Cameron Nizialek and Dustin Colquitt have floated between inconsistent and disappointing for the most part.
Upgrading the position would be a cost-effective way to help a defense that’s been outclassed for the majority of the season.
The Jets released Morstead with starter Braden Mann returning from an injury, but he could have easily kept the job.
When thanking the team, Morstead stated that he still had plenty left in the tank and wished to continue playing. Despite being a veteran of the league at 34, he’s considerably younger than Colquitt. General manager Terry Fontenot will be familiar with Morstead from their time together in New Orleans and the Falcons would be a logical landing spot.
