Report: Joe Morgan to Baltimore, Brandon Dixon to practice squad


Former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan may finally be free from repeated transactions involving releases and signings, at least for a little bit. ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that the Baltimore Ravens are supposed to sign Morgan today to their active roster.

Joe Morgan was one player that fans loved rooting for, and it’s bizarre that he didn’t see the field much for Sean Payton’s offense when he was on the roster. Hopefully, he’ll get his chance to star with injuries hounding the Ravens receiving corps.

In other news, The Advocate‘s Nick Underhill is reporting that Brandon Dixon, who is the twin brother of current Saints defensive back Brian, will be joining the team’s practice squad. Brandon was brought in to try out with the team on October 29th.

Both Brian and Brandon attended college at Northwest Missouri State, and Brandon was actually selected by the New York Jets in the 6th round of the 2014 NFL draft. Brian was an undrafted rookie free agent that the New Orleans Saints picked up right after the draft.

Brandon has spent time with five different squads since joining the NFL, most recently the New England Patriots practice squad. In 2012, he received numerous honors. He’d be voted as a second-team All-American by Daktronics and, and made The Associated Press’ All-America third-team.

The Saints practice squad, who has had a lot of shuffling recently, now looks like this:

DB: Alden Darby
DB: Brandon Dixon
LB: Henry Coley
DE: Ashaad Mabry
OL: Ryan Seymour
OL: Bryan Witzman
TE: Chris Manhertz
WR: Seantavius Jones
WR: Reggie Bell
FB: Toben Opurum
