Joseph Morgan: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Despite trading away both Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills this offseason, the Saints did not take a wide receiver in the 2015 NFL Draft. Morgan is a leading candidate to be the Saints' fourth or fifth receiver, behind Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks, and Nick Toon, ESPN.com reports.

Morgan re-signed with the Saints on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Morgan was released by the Saints in December midway through a poor 2014 campaign. However, the team tends to have an open-minded approach when it comes to the roster, and will give the wideout another shot with the club. It's unclear where he will fit in, but with Kenny Stills no longer on the roster, he could make a run at a spot out of camp.
Morgan was released by the Saints on Tuesday, NFL.com reports.

Morgan was reinstated from club suspension Monday, Howard Balzer of USA Today reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A reason for Morgan's suspension was never provided by the team, but his ban ended up lasting just two weeks. The fourth-year wideout has played in one game this season and isn't likely to work his way past fourth on the depth chart.
Morgan's suspension isn't season-ending, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Morgan was placed on the reserve/suspended list last Tuesday, Oct. 28, for an undisclosed reason, but such a designation can only result in a maximum ban of four weeks. Even so, he hasn't been a part of the wide receiver mix since Week 1, when he failed to reel in any of the three passes directed his way. Therefore, he won't be a fantasy consideration for the foreseeable future.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

In 2014, Morgan will look to rebound from a torn ACL suffered in 2013 training camp and re-establish himself as the dangerous deep threat that he developed into in his first full season on the field in 2012. While appearing in 14 games in 2012, including five starts, the former undrafted free agent from Walsh University hauled in 10 passes for 379 yards (a whopping 37.9 yards per catch average) and three touchdowns, while serving in the wide receiver rotation. Morgan will face stiff competition to for targets, however, as he's likely behind Kenny Stills and rookie Brandin Cooks on the Saints' receiver depth chart.

2013

Suffered a season-ending knee injury in training camp.

2012

An undrafted free agent out of tiny Walsh College, Morgan was the darling of Saints training camp last year and was considered a lock for a roster spot before a knee injury sidelined him for the entire year. He returns in 2012 but will again face a stiff uphill climb to even secure a roster spot. Still, with the Saints' receiving corps far from determined and Morgan's further abilities as a kick returner, he is at least worth monitoring in training camp to see if he was more than a flash in the pan last year.
