” I came out ! Morstead said in a Facebook post. “I am so grateful to the #Jets for the opportunity to continue living my dream. I have to show my children how to persevere in the face of adversity. I can’t ask for much more than that.

“Also, if my production this season has not already indicated it, there is a lot of gasoline in the tank. This will be my first time going through the waiver process, so all of you will keep me updated if a team claims me. The internet is discovering these things before us. AllGasNoBrakes ”

Morstead was a Saints fifth-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. He played for the team from 2009 through the 2020 season.

He was a member of the Saints’ Super Bowl winning team during the 2009 season. New Orleans won their first Super Bowl when the team defeated the Indianapolis Colts at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, in Florida.

He was released by the Saints on March 4.
