The Jets announced the re-signing of punter Thomas Morstead and fullback Nick Bawden Wednesday. Just like Morstead told Jets fans to do, they can relax now.
Both Morstead and Bawden were left off the initial 53-man roster Tuesday but there were clearly handshake deals with both to come back once other moves were made as the Jets did roster gymnastics. Those moves came Wednesday as the Jets placed offensive tackle Carter Warren and tight end Kenny Yeboah on injured reserve. Both are now out for at least four games. They can both return during the season because they were a part of the initial 53.
There was never any doubt about Morstead returning and pretty much the same for Bawden. The Jets pretty much let it be known that Morstead was going to be the man at punter this season and Bawden was getting more involved in the offense. He now can act as the 4th tight end with Yeboah on injured reserve.
So all is well on special teams again for the Jets. They have a punter on the roster. As Morstead said, “We’re gonna be ok.” He even took to X to share his excitement about sticking around with the Jets.
