Joe Morgan #13

Joe Morgan signed with the Saints as a rookie free agent in 2011.   He made some incredible plays in the preseason before suffering a knee injury, which ended his playing time before the regular season.

He is most remembered for a 78-yard touchdown on a punt return against the San Francisco 49ers in the preseason.  He in considered to have high top end speed but his draft analysis ranked his pass catching ability as a weakness.

Joe Vitt has compared Morgan’s speed to that of Robert Meachem.  Morgan has been learning the Z or flanker position.

*Interesting tidbits–Joe Morgan can be found on twitter just about any day of the week.  He is a big fan of Sponge Bob.
