MORGAN LANDS WITH THE SAINTS

After failing to land veteran linebacker Zach Thomas, the New Orleans Saints have targeted another available linebacker.

According to Steve Reed of CarolinaGrowl.com, former Panthers linebacker Dan Morgan has agreed to terms with the Saints.

Morgan was a first-round pick of the Panthers in 2001. He played in only one game two years ago due to a chronic concussion problem. In 2007, he missed 13 games due to a partially torn Achilles' tendon.

Thoughts on Dan Morgan pickup...

We are always giving injured players a chance to produce. Hope this pickup works out...

Re: Thoughts on Dan Morgan pickup...

if it doesn't work out we'll have a decent replacement in Shanle or Simoneau.

I wonder if this means we'll attempt to draft Mendenhall/Cromartie/McKelvin/Jenkins at 10th and get a LB/CB in the 2nd? or a RB in the second if we get a defense player at 10 overall.

Re: Thoughts on Dan Morgan pickup...

This is a good pickup and roll of the dice . I think that it could be a big winner with little downside . Nothing ventured nothing gained . Ilike the fact the Fo is leaving no stone unturned to improve the defense . This guy is a beast if he can get and stay on the field. I also think he might have some history with Vilma at the U. I think that all moves before the draft can affect the picks in any round . I have a feeling that RB is a bigger priority than most of us think. Also good big athletic tackles are hugely valued in the nfl

No harm here. If he stays healthy and produces, he is a definite upgrade. If not, he's cut.
