I think that's just it, no guarantee. So either he produces really well or yeah he will be cut. It can't hurt to see if he can get back to where he was

Re: Saints sign WR Joe Morgan

The thing with Morgan is he tends to make big plays whenever he's in the game

First game he was activated for last year was the ravens in week 13.

3rd play of the game, WR Reverse for 50+ yards

Later in the game beats the ravens on a double moves for a 60 yard catch.

I just hope the maturity issue has gotten better.

Re: Saints sign WR Joe Morgan

He's probably injury insurance. He knows our system and players. He'll get in shape with TC and preseason, and if he doesn't make the team he's a phone call away ready to step in immediately. No downside to this signing at all other than he takes a camp body's spot on the preseason roster.

i always loved one thing about his game. those last few YAC. talk about fighting for every single yard you can get. he is a poster child for not avoiding hits

Good signing on the cheap. Loomis ceases to amaze me. This just tells me we're probably not drafting any wr's or cb's. DL, ILB, OL

Re: Saints sign WR Joe Morgan

Great signing if he stays away from IR, AND he does not get suspended for reasons we do not know, AND we play the Ravens, AND he had the ball thrown to him at least 12 times.

Otherwise, nice pocket money for the kid whilst it lasts.

Re: Saints sign WR Joe Morgan

No biggie here. Morgan screwed up last season. Fact of the matter is, he probably KNOWS this is his last shot in the NFL. Probably desperate. I'd be surprised if we don't see this kid going balls to the wall.

If he didn't see the light after being cut and doesn't give this 1000% then he doesn't deserve to be on the team.

Besides, he can be a perfect example of what will happen if you piss off the coach and take your job for granted.

If he plays his cards right he can be an inspirational leader in the locker room.

Completely agree and his twitter said how thankful he was to have another shot to be part of the whotdat nation. I agree. Before the injury and stuff last year I felt he was headed for a breakout.

I thought Payton was making a point of avoiding players like Morgan. Maybe JM has gotten it together and convinced Payton as much.
Best of luck, and a cheap #5.

but lest we forget:

He was a scapegoat after awful team effort.
