Evans, Morstead heading to 2013 Pro Bowl

FOX 8 News received this press release from the Saints organization Wednesday evening:

Saints G Jahri Evans and P Thomas Morstead were named to the 2013 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced Wednesday night.

Evans, originally a fourth round draft pick of the Saints in 2006 out of Bloomsburg, has earned his fourth consecutive All-Star berth. Evans' four selections are ranked second in franchise history among offensive linemen behind T William Roaf's seven. Evans has opened all 111 games at right guard since entering the starting lineup in 2006, the most consecutive contests started by a Saint to open a career and currently tied for the fifth-longest streak of games started among active NFL players. In 2012, the Saints offensive line has surrendered only 24 sacks, tied for the NFL's third fewest total, blocking for an offense that is ranked third in the NFL in net yards per game (408.9) and scoring (423 points).

The Pro Bowl honor is a first for Morstead. In 2012, the team's fifth round draft pick in 2009 leads the NFL in both gross (50.5) and net (44.4) punting average, as he threatens to set the league single-season record for net (43.99 – San Francisco's Andy Lee – 2011) average going into Sunday's season finale vs. Carolina. 42 of Morstead's kickoffs have also gone for touchbacks to tie for third in the NFC and sixth in the NFL.

    As Anthony Davis has stated multiple times, legacies are built with postseason success. Not just defeating the 3rd-seed Trail Blazers, but sweeping them in a series that they dominated from start to finish. Well, it doesn't get much better than that. "I just try to go out every game and just play to the best of my ability, to go out there and help the team win. I'm trying to build a legacy here in New Orleans, and let people know that we're for real," said Anthony Da
