The New York Jets' lost season took another hit when the Pro Bowl results were released, with a few of their stars getting snubbed. Despite missing the playoffs for the 13th straight season some fans would have loved to see a few of their favorite players get selected to play in the Pro Bowl.
Let's tap into some of the studs who were slighted from securing a Pro Bowl nod.
3 Pro Bowl Snubs for New York Jets
1. Thomas Morstead
Thomas Morstead is one of the most popular players on the Jets roster. A punter usually doesn't have that reputation but the 37-year-old does. He was the leading vote-getter at his position showcasing the love he receives from fans.
Morstead leads the NFL in both punts (92) and net yards (3,844) but is tied for second in punts inside the 20 (33). This is also his highest punt average (49) since his 2012 Pro Bowl campaign. The SMU product is the first alternate behind Las Vegas punter AJ Cole.
In the Week 11 contest against the New York Giants, Morstead secured AFC Special Team Player of the Week. He recorded 11 punts for 529 yards (48.1 avg), including three punts that landed inside the five-yard line. He was the first player in team history to accomplish that feat and was the 15th player since 1970 to do so.
Additionally, three of Morestead's punts directly translated to safeties for the Jets in 2023. In Week 4 and 5, the Jets posted a safety in back-to-back games for the first time in franchise history.
New York's lackluster offense gave Morstead plenty of opportunities to succeed and he took full advantage.
