Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan says he made a mistake. At mini-camp, he talked about getting arrested for DWI about two weeks ago and was open about what happened:

“One thing it shows that I am human. 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. 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.”

The Saints are counting on the speedy Morgan to be a deep threat. Last year he only caught 10 passes, but 3 were for touchdowns.
