Saints' Morstead aiming for a career-high in key stat

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints punter Thomas Morstead wasn't entirely satisfied with the booming boots he sent soaring nearly 60 yards down field during his latest exhibition outing.

While the punts that traveled 57 and 53 yards in the air demonstrated his leg is as strong as it was when New Orleans made a trade in order to draft him in 2009, Morstead said those kicks might have looked better than they were because of good coverage downfield.

"I'd give myself a C," Morstead said Wednesday when asked how he'd grade his performance during New Orleans' victory over the Chargers in Los Angeles last weekend. "But we're in preseason and a lot of guys enjoyed covering downfield."
