LB Morgan Retires

LB Dan Morgan has retired before ever really hitting the field for the Saints.

The Achilles injury he suffered last year has frustrated him so far this offseason.

The retirement deals a blow to the Saints' depth at the position though the Saints still have an experienced starter in Scott Shanle to man the weakside job. The Saints will likely look to address competition at the position in free agency.

Meanwhile, while one starting DE Will Smith is skipping voluntary workouts to protest his contract, the Saints' other starting DE Charles Grant is headed to Georgia to post bail on his involuntary manslaughter charge.
