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.

    Hello Gene!
    I think we’ll keep 6-WR’s again this year= Colston, Deverey, Moore, Morgan, Roby and Toon.
    Arrington has worn out his welcome and is not physical, nor big enough to knock DB’s off the line of scrimmage.
    Be cool big daddy!

    Roby is not in the mix at WR other than as an emergency.  His place will be on special teams.  Toon will be on the roster as a fourth or fifth WR because there’s no way they could get him through waivers on to the practice squad.  That leaves Morgan and Arrington to fight for the last WR position.  Morgan can still go to the practice squad but not Arrington.  Conceivable the Saints could end up keeping all of them.
