Saints waived WR Joe Morgan.
The Saints promised changes following their humiliating Week 14 home blowout at the hands of the Panthers, and they've started by waiving a role player. A situational deep threat, Morgan drew the ire of both Drew Brees and coach Sean Payton on Sunday, and was suspended earlier this season for unknown reasons. Morgan had caught four passes for 92 yards after missing all of 2013 with a knee injury, adding a 67-yard rush. Although he's already 26 and has a history of knee issues — Morgan also missed all of 2011 — he should draw interest on the open market, though it may not come until the offseason. Morgan's release is a sign Robert Meachem (ankle) is ready to go. Tue, Dec 9, 2014 02:46:00 PM

Joe Morgan caught one pass for 62 yards and rushed one time for 67 yards in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

Yes, that's 129 yards on two touches. Morgan took the second play of the game 67 yards on a reverse up the left sideline before getting tackle inside the five-yard line. He later beat Lardarius Webb on a double-move before getting taken down in the red zone again. Morgan is simply a situational deep threat.

Saints activated WR Joe Morgan from the reserve/suspended list.

Morgan's ban ended up lasting two weeks. The Saints never revealed why he was suspended. Active just one time so far this season, it's possible Morgan could eventually be waived.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 06:08:00 PM

Saints placed WR Joe Morgan on the reserve/suspended list.

It's unclear if it's a league- or team-mandated suspension. Coach Sean Payton wouldn't elaborate at Tuesday's presser. The fourth-year deep threat has been active just one time this season.
Tue, Oct 28, 2014 03:44:00 PM

Saints declared WR Joe Morgan, WR Nick Toon, FB Erik Lorig, LB Ramon Humber, LB Kyle Knox, DB Patrick Robinson and NT Brandon Deaderick inactive for Week 7 against the Lions.

Morgan and Toon both appear to be healthy scratches. Kenny Stills should serve as the No. 3 receiver. Robinson (thigh) was expected to play. Corey White will continue to start opposite Keenan Lewis.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 11:39:00 AM

Saints WR Joe Morgan is inactive for Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Cowboys.

Morgan is a healthy scratch for the third straight week. The rest of the Saints inactives are RB Mark Ingram, CB Patrick Robinson, S Marcus Ball, FB Erik Lorig, ILB David Hawthorne, and DT John Jenkins.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 07:05:00 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Morgan returned to practice Friday and is expected to play this week. He should see playing time in four-wide sets.
Sat, Sep 20, 2014 08:34:00 PM

Joe Morgan was targeted three times in the Saints' Week 1 loss to Atlanta, but did not record a catch.

Morgan earned the start, but was mostly used on clear-out routes. Brees did target him deep twice, but Morgan could not come down with either. Morgan would likely get another start if Kenny Stills (quad) is unable to go again next week. He has no value in standard fantasy leagues.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 05:35:00 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan is listed as the starter in place of Kenny Stills (quad) for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Falcons.

A speedster that can take the top off any defense, Morgan is a better fit than Brandin Cooks for the clear-out role normally occupied by Stills. The role may allow Morgan to explode for a big play, but he will not see enough targets to be fantasy worthy this week. Cooks remains an interesting play with Stills out.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 12:42:00 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan caught three balls for 108 yards in Friday night's preseason game against the Titans.

He was targeted four times. A burner deep threat, clear-out type, Morgan is on the roster bubble and needed to remind New Orleans' coaching staff of his big-play potential. He accomplished that feat on Friday night. Morgan is behind Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks, Kenny Stills, and Nick Toon at wideout. It's possible he's battling Robert Meachem for one roster spot.
Fri, Aug 15, 2014 11:52:00 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan (ACL) is "a go" for training camp.

The word comes straight from coach Sean Payton. Morgan went down last August. He'll compete for a role as a situational deep threat in the Saints' crowded receiver corps.
Thu, Jul 24, 2014 06:30:00 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan (ACL) is on track for the start of training camp.

10 months removed from surgery, Morgan has been limited at OTAs. He was non-tendered by the Saints earlier this offseason before being re-signed for the minimum. He will compete for one of the final receiver spots. Morgan showed deep threat potential prior to his injury, but must prove he's healthy to avoid getting cut.
Thu, Jun 5, 2014 03:46:00 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan (knee) is limited in OTAs.

Morgan was given a one-year timetable after tearing his ACL last August. Re-signed to a minimum deal in March, he'll fight for one of the Saints' final receiver spots. Morgan came on as an intriguing deep threat in 2012, but has always struggled with injury.
Thu, May 29, 2014 01:40:00 PM

Saints re-signed WR Joe Morgan to a one-year contract.

Morgan was a restricted free agent, but the Saints gambled they could sign him for less than the "low" tender of $1.431 million, letting him hit the open market. Morgan visited the Chiefs, but otherwise failed to generate interest as he recovers from a torn ACL. Going on 26, Morgan has serious separation skills, but has struggled to stay healthy. Seven months removed from his injury, Morgan is expected to be ready for training camp.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 06:11:00 PM

Free agent WR Joe Morgan is visiting the Chiefs.

The Saints surprisingly failed to tender Morgan as a restricted free agent, and it's hard to imagine them re-signing him now after ponying up $9 million a year to Jairus Byrd. New Orleans was already in very tough salary cap condition. Morgan is a 26-year-old vertical stretcher with 4.38/4.40 wheels.
