Saints re-sign Joe Morgan
 


Saints re-sign Joe Morgan

We noted this morning that free agent receiver Joe Morgan had removed a potential obstacle to finding a job by entering a diversion program to resolve a 2013 DWI charge. Hours later, Morgan has found himself a new job.

The Saints have announced that Morgan has signed a one-year contract to remain in New Orleans.

The 25-year-old Morgan has played his entire career for the Saints, who signed him as anundrafted free agent in 2011. Morgan has played sparingly, but he has shown big-play ability with the few chances he has received: He has only caught 10 passes in his career, but he has a whopping 379 receiving yards and three touchdowns on those 10 catches.

Last year Morgan missed the entire season after suffering a knee injury in training camp. If Morgan can get back to full speed this year, he may be ready to make some big plays in the Saintsí passing game.

Really good news if he can stay healthy. It took Ivory 4 seasons, maybe its Joe's turn.

By my calcs we're now 2 dollars under the cap!:p

When he's healthy he can be a great player, he showed all the potential in the world in 2012

If he can stay healthy our WR core will be young and deadly

If he's still got his speed we are in business.

10 catches 400 yds. Exactly what the Saints need to either stretch the field or turn a 5yd curl into a 60 yd TD. Potential to be Joe Horn type player.

sweet - Morgan made some big plays and wasn't afraid of contact staying in bounds

I think this means we aren't going to resign Meachem. Morgan can easily take Meach's place if he remains healthy.

Good signing :bng:

I think this means that we choose him over Sidney Rice. I like it.
More WRs to come (draft).

Welcome back... though I think we pretty much knew it was a given. Let's go earn that next contract Joe.
