We noted this morning that free agent receiver Joe Morgan had removed a potential obstacle to finding a job by entering a diversion program to resolve a 2013 DWI charge. Hours later, Morgan has found himself a new job.
The Saints have announced that Morgan has signed a one-year contract to remain in New Orleans.
The 25-year-old Morgan has played his entire career for the Saints, who signed him as anundrafted free agent in 2011. Morgan has played sparingly, but he has shown big-play ability with the few chances he has received: He has only caught 10 passes in his career, but he has a whopping 379 receiving yards and three touchdowns on those 10 catches.
Last year Morgan missed the entire season after suffering a knee injury in training camp. If Morgan can get back to full speed this year, he may be ready to make some big plays in the Saints’ passing game.
