Who are the top 5 punters in the history of the New Orleans Saints?

Yesterday, we unveiled the five best quarterbacks in franchise history.

Today, we move on to special teams.

1)—THOMAS MORSTEAD—A 2009 5th round draft choice out of SMU by the Saints, Morstead has spent the last 8 seasons with the Saints, serving as the punter, and kickoff specialist. This one isn’t hard. Morstead, who was on the Saints’ 2009 Super Bowl team, was a Pro Bowl selection in 2013, and holds the franchise record with a yards-per-punt average of 47.0, for punters that have spent at least 10 games with the team.

2)—TOMMY BARNHARDT—Longevity means something, so he gets to #2 spot on my list. Barnhardt punted 13 years (1987-1999) for the Saints, averaging 42.5 yards-per-punt, which ranks 5th, in terms of guys who punted at least 10 games.

3)—MITCH BERGER—He punted for the Saints for three years (2003-2005), which is kind of my minimum requirement. He finished his stint averaging 43.7 yards-per-punt, which ranks third in franchise history. Berger was a 2004 Pro Bowl selection with the Saints.

4)—STEVE WEATHERFORD—Another guy who punted for the Saints for three years (2006-2008), averaging 43.5 yards-per-punt, which ranks 4th.

5)—BRIAN HANSEN—He kicked five years for the Saints (1984-1988), averaging 42.0 yards-per-punt, which ranks 9th, but 6th for guys that punted in at least 30 games. He was a 1984 Pro Bowl selection.
