Saints WR Morgan ready to be more than just another guy
 
1 Attachment(s)
METAIRIE, La. — Joe Morgan simply walked into the cafeteria at the Saints training facility in Metairie after New Orleans’ win over Tampa Bay in October, unaware of just how spectacular his 48-yard touchdown catch was to watch.

It didn’t take him long to figure it out.

Playing on the TVs in the common area was ESPN and, at that moment, the World Wide Leader’s Sports Science segment. And on that segment, Morgan finally saw it – the play in which he shook two Bucs defenders, somehow stayed on his feet and waltzed into the end zone.

“It took me by surprise to actually see myself on that crazy show,” Morgan said.

Safe to say, Morgan has taken many people by surprise this year.

He has seven catches for an astounding 44.3 yard average. Take away his first reception of the season – a five-yard catch at Carolina on Sept. 16 – and his average jumps to 50 yards per.

While he doesn’t qualify for any official stats because of the limited amount of receptions, ProFootballReference.com says his per catch average is highest for any player with at least seven catches in a single season. It’s a ridiculous statistic in spite of the limited touches.

Or, as Morgan said, “That’s unbelievable.”

Morgan isn’t a player talked about openly as being in the Saints’ future plans. But he’s making it hard for the team to keep him on the bench.

Morgan has definitley impressed this season, he has made some fantastic catches and to say he looks like a smaller guy he is strong after the catch

I'd love to see him Colston Toon and Moore ok the field together. I'm excited to see what Toon can do.

Devery will be around. I see us keeping 5WRs. Colston, Henderson, Morgan, Toon and that short guy.

I would like to see us get a good hands reciever in the draft, Morgan seems good and possibly a keeper but personally it would not hurt to draft another Colston type, big with good hands that is durable.

I feel much better about possibly losing Henderson now.
