As long as he's money. We all remember how damaging a missed kick can be in the long run with Atlanta last year.

Make Morstead kick instead of Hartley until he's healthy enough to play again!

I mean he already does the kick offs, so he could easily do at least the extra point kicks. If it means losing a roster spot to sign Kasey, I would rather have the Saints go for it on 4th downs until they get inside the range at which Morstead is comfortable in making the FG.

He might be able to make 30 yard kicks, which about the same as Kasey has left in his foot.

If they really have to sign another kicker I would like that to be someone who has the leg strength to make 40+ or even 50 yard kicks if the need be.

John Kasey 2010 - 25/29, long 55
Hartley 2010 - 20/25, long 52

Kasey just can't KO anymore, but we don't need that.

OK. Maybe I just remember wrong. My recollection was that his leg strength didn't seem to be the same during his stint with the Saints, but I'll retract my earlier statement if I was wrong.
