Joseph Morgan won't let his latest long touchdown go to his head.
There have already been too many hard lessons during the Saints receiver's first two training camps for that.
Morgan says his 53-yard touchdown catch against Jacksonville last Friday night was good to have on film, but that there's still a lot more he must do during the next two weeks to make the regular season roster.
Morgan is in his second season out of Walsh University, an NAIA school in Canton, Ohio. He played only two preseason games in 2011, scoring long TDs in both, before a knee injury ended his season.
This preseason he's struggled with consistency, but has still showed big play ability.
The Saints' next preseason game is Saturday night against Houston.

Signs posted throughout Brother Jimmy's BBQ, a Miami restaurant co-owned by suspended Saints LB Jonathan Vilma, indicate Roger Goodell is not welcome there.
Will Smith, the Saints’ leading pass rusher on the defensive line last season, has been suspended for the first 4 games of the season for his role in the Saints’ bounty scandal. On paper, this seems like a huge blow to an already bad Saints’ pass rush. Smith wasn’t great last season, with 7 sacks, 7 quarterback hits, and 34 quarterback pressures on 630 pass rush snaps, including...

After a year in Tennessee, linebacker Barrett Ruud is back in the NFC South – just not with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
On Monday, the New Orleans Saints traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks for Ruud. The Saints have a huge hole at the linebacker position with recent injuries to Chris Chamberlain, Curtis Lofton, and David Hawthorne.
Given the fact that Ruud...
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn’t a well-liked man around New Orleans these days for the punishments he handed out to the Saints franchise for their bounty program. Among those to feel the wrath of the commish was three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who has been suspended for the entire 2012 season for his role. Vilma, along [...]
The New Orleans Saints have been hit hard by a recent spat of injuries, but the team did get a bit of good news Tuesday with the return of two key contributors.

If NFL commissioner Roger Goodell ever has a hankering for some good BBQ grub while visiting Miami, he might as well cross Brother Jimmy’s BBQ off is list of potential eateries. Why?

Trade for Saints: The Saints obviously felt they needed added depth at linebacker. David Hawthorne and Curtis Lofton have suffered knee and ankle injuries respectively and their statuses for week 1 are up in the air, while Chris Chamberlain tore his ACL and will be put on IR. However, Ruud, once one of the better linebackers in the league, has had his career decimated by injuries...
Michael Silver has it right:
NEW ORLEANS – The day after he made the infamous speech that would provide a chilling context to the New Orleans Saints’ pay-for-injury scandal, Gregg Williams engaged in a conspicuous display of recklessness that some in the Crescent City still find even harder to forgive.
This is old ground, and I’m trying to watch my blood pressure, so I won’t...

Round By Round Picks 12 Man PPR League
1. Jimmy Graham
I took Graham this early for a couple of reasons. First, he is my top ranked TE and we start a TE weekly, which gives me an advantage at the position. He may not repeat his record 2011 season, but in a PPR league the guy will be a beast.
2. Marshawn Lynch
Speaking of beasts, I took Beast...
