After signing three players earlier today who tried out at their weekend rookie minicamp, the Saints have also added a veteran, agreeing to terms with receiver Josh Morgan, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (Twitter link). Though he’s seen action in seven NFL seasons, Morgan was also auditioning at New Orleans’ rookie camp.
Morgan, who turns 30 years old next month, spent 2014 with the Bears, where he split third receiver snaps with Marquess Wilson. He was targeted only 19 times, catching 10 for 70 yards and one touchdown. The 2008 sixth-round draft pick didn’t play on special teams last season, so he’ll probably try to make the Saints’ roster based on his offensive ability alone. Morgan, who’s also spent time with the 49ers and Washington, will compete with Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks, and Nick Toon, among others, for playing time.
The signing of Morgan puts, along with this afternoon’s additions, means New Orleans’ roster sits at 92. The club will need to make two roster moves soon in order to comply with the offseason maximum of 90.
