New Orleans (Learfield Wire Service) - Thomas Morstead is willing to pay it forward after Minnesota Vikings fans donated reportedly more than $150,000 to the charity of the New Orleans Saints punter.

The Vikings fans' generosity comes on the heels of Morstead playing through the pain of torn cartilage in his ribs sustained on the first series of Sunday's NFC divisional-round game.

Vikings fans donated to Morstead's "What You Give Will Grow" charity that helps the New Orleans community - especially children battling cancer - prompting the punter to promise to return to the state to personally deliver a check to Minnesota's Child Life Program.

"I'm just totally humbled by this," Morstead in a video on Twitter. "I might be forced to root for you guys all the way through the Super Bowl now. Just totally blown away. Thank you very much."
