LB Morgan Says He’s Coming Back to Team

Linebacker Dan Morgan has informed the Saints he intends to return to the NFL after a one-year retirement, General Manager Mickey Loomis confirmed. The Saints will maintain Morgan’s rights if he is reinstated, though it’s not clear if they want to keep him under contract or if he wants to look to play elsewhere.

The Saints signed Morgan to a one-year, incentive-laden contract last March, when he was attempting to come back from an Achilles tendon injury and a series of concussions. But Morgan chose to retire two months later when the rehab wasn’t progressing as quickly as he had hoped.
