The New Orleans Saints are re-signing Blake Gillikin. The 25-year-old was brought in as a UDFA to replace long-time punter Thomas Morstead. Gillikin had 32 punts inside the 20. This was tied for fourth place among all punters. He also ranked in the top ten in net yards.
The Penn State alumni is one of the best punters in the league. The team will benefit greatly from having him back in the building. However, Gillikin will be getting a new number this season.
