On Wednesday, New Orleans Saints wide receiver/return specialist Rashid Shaheed was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career.
Shaheed was originally signed by the Saints after the 2022 NFL Draft out of Weber State. He is ranked 2nd in the NFC and 3rd in the NFL in punt return average (14.0). He holds the record for 3rd-longest punt return in franchise history after Shaheed returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown on September 24th against the Green Bay Packers. Shaheed’s current stats for the season are 43 receptions, 654 yards, 4 TDs, ahead of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
