Joe Morgan SaintsSaints wide receiver Joe Morgan he made a mistake, and plans to learn from it.

Morgan spoke publicly for the first time since his arrest Saturday for allegedly driving while intoxicated and driving without a license.

Louisiana State Police say Morgan was found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle on the Earhart Expressway. He was released after posting a $1,150 bond.

“One thing it shows is that I am human,” said Morgan. “It shows that I am not just a product of my environment, I am not just a football player, I am human. I made a mistake I will own up to it and have learned so far.”

Morgan said he spoke with head coach Sean Payton about the incident.

“If you did something in your job, you would worry about your job. It was something in the back of my mind, but after talking to coach Payton, and it was something that we handle,” said Morgan.

Morgan caught 10 passes for 379 yards and three touchdowns in 2012. With Devery Henderson not returning, Morgan is seen as the Saints principal deep ball threat.
