In more cost-cutting moves, the New Orleans Saints have restructured the contracts of All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan and linebacker Demario Davis, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. The deals will save the Saints an additional $13 million in cap space as the team prepares for the start of free agency on March 17. Jordan, 31, was New Orleans's first-round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
That excitement now continues as the Saints have re-signed Montgomery to a one-year vet minimum deal. Montgomery had an interesting first year with New Orleans. Between Alvin Kamara’s astonishing season and Montgomery’s early-season injury, the former Green Bay Packer’s contributions were limited early, playing more than 3% of snaps in only four games throughout 2020.
Morstead will go down as the greatest punter in Saints history. When the Saints traded up to the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft, I remember doing draft coverage on WWL 870 AM that day with Mark Chifici and callers were livid the Saints had actually moved up for a punter. Morstead averaged 46.5 yards per punt per season and averaged over 45 yards per punt from 2010-19.
