The Ravens receiving group has a new addition, 27 year old former Saint Joe Morgan. Morgan beat out several other receivers in a workout yesterday, including Hakeem Nicks,and was signed today.

Morgan, an undrafted free agent with 4.44 speed, played 19 games for the Saints in 2012 and 2014, totaling 14 receptions for 471 yards and 3 touchdowns, an incredible 33.6 yards per reception. Most of that production came in 2012, as he only has 4 receptions and 0 touchdowns since 2013. He suffered a torn meniscus and a partially torn ACL during a training camp practice and missed the entire 2013, and didn't do much since. He was expected to play a role in their offense this year, but was beaten out for a roster spot.

It seems Morgan is headed to the active roster, while yesterday's signee, Chuck Jacobs is not:
