Why Joseph Morgan should be nervous

Every year, the signing of free agents and the drafting of new players can bring excitement to the coaching staff and fan base. However, it could also bring apprehension to some returning veteran players as young players are gunning for their spot. This year, wide receiver looks to be one of the most competitive positions this offseason. Consequently, veteran receiver Joseph Morganís job could be in jeopardy.

The New Orleans Saints saw wide receiver as the biggest need to address this offseason. And on the draft they acted accordingly trading up to snag Oregon State playmaker Brandin Cooks. The addition of Cooks and other talented undrafted free agents has all of a sudden made wide receiver a crowded position.

New Orleans Saints: Why Joseph Morgan should be nervous

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

I wouldn't be shocked to see him and Meachem get cut. We will see, but they're going to have to show up big time in camp. It's going to be exciting.

I would be more surprised if Morgan gets cut than Meachem.

The one receiver who has been the biggest disappointment is Toon. He can't seem to stay healthy enough to be on the field, and even when he has been, Toon's performance has been average to bad. Last year alone his drops could have made the difference in two of our losses.

Toon has been the standout WR so far in OTA's and the mini-camp according to those in the know.

The point is that he didn't get much of a chance after OTA's and camps last year. He had his moments, but was odd man out in the numbers. Payton has said he is looking "great" this off-season.

Nope, he isn't eligible.

Practice Squad Rules

Section 4. Eligibility:

(a) The Practice Squad shall consist of the following players, provided that they have not served more than two previous seasons on a Practice Squad: (i) players who do not have an Accrued Season of NFL experience; and (ii) free agent players who were on the Active List for fewer than nine regular season games during their only Accrued Season(s). An otherwise eligible player may be a Practice Squad player for a third season only if the Club by which he is employed that season has at least 53 players on its Active/Inactive List during the entire period of his employment.

(b) A player shall be deemed to have served on a Practice Squad in a season if he has passed the club's physical and been a member of the club's Practice Squad for at least three regular season or postseason games during his first two Practice Squad seasons, and for at least one regular season or postseason game during his third Practice Squad season. (For purposes of this Section, a bye week counts as a game provided that the player is not terminated until after the regular season or postseason weekend in question.)
Section 4 (a)(i) excludes Toon since he was on the 53 man roster all of last season.
