“I’m out!,” Morstead said in a Facebook post. “I’m so grateful to the #Jets for the opportunity to keep living out my dream. I got to show my kids how to persevere through adversity. Can’t ask for much more than that.

“Also, if my production this season hasn’t already indicated, there is a lot of gas left in the tank. This will be my first time going through the waiver wire process so Y’all keep me posted if a team claims me. The internet finds these things out before we do. 🙏AllGasNoBrakes”

Morstead was a fifth-round draft pick by the Saints 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, Florida.

Morstead also went to the Pro Bowl following the 2012 regular season.

He was released by the Saints on March 4th.
