Miami Dolphins have released Pro Bowl punter Brandon Fields

Saints have signed former Pro Bowl punter Brandon Fields

The New Orleans Saints are signing punter Brandon Fields, according to his agent Ian Greengross. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Saints are releasing veteran S Kenny Phillips on Tuesday. This is likely to make room for P Brandon Fields.

Fields, who was brought in for a tryout on Tuesday, will replace Thomas Morstead, who strained his quad on a kickoff during Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, according to Saints coach Sean Payton.

Fields was a 2007 seventh round selection for the Dolphins and spent eight seasons with them before being released during training camp this summer. He was a 2013 Pro Bowl selection and a 2013 second-team All-Pro, averaging 50.2 yards-per-kick in 2012.
