Jahri Evans and Thomas Morstead Join Brees in Pro Bowl


by Sarah Esenwein

A Two Dat Super Bowl win is out of the question, but our Saints are still getting some national recognition. It was announced Saturday that New Orleans Saints RG Jahri Evans and punter, Thomas Morestead will be joining QB Drew Brees in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl on January 27th.
 

 

Evans earned First Team honors and is making his fourth consecutive
appearance at the game and Morstead earns Second Team honors along
with the prestige of being the first Saints punter in team history to
earn All- Pro honors from the Associated Press.

This year, Evans and the offensive line surrendered only 26 sacks,
tying the team for the NFL’s third fewest total and ranks second in
the league for net yards per game at 410.9 and placed third in the in
points per game with 28.8.

Morstead finished the 2012 season tied for the NFL’s best net punting
yards average with 43.2 and finished second in gross punting yards
average with 50.1.
