The on-again, off-again playing of Saints linebacker Dan Morgan now seems to be off again, as agent Drew Rosenhaus wrote on his Twitter page today that Morgan is retiring for good. “Dan Morgan has informed the Saints that he has decided to retire due (to) continued injuries,” Rosenhaus said. “Dan would like to thank the Saints for the chance to come back this year, but injuries would not let him continue his career. His decision is final, and he will be moving on to focus on his restaurant business in Charlotte. Dan also wants to be able to spend more time with his wife and children.”
The Saints have yet to confirm the decision, but that could come as early as tomorrow or whenever Morgan makes the call to inform them. He never played a down with New Orleans, signing with them in 2008, but retiring last year stating that injuries were keeping him from being the player he once was.
He was a one-time Pro Bowl player with the Panthers, but never played in all 16 regular season games, playing in just four his last two years with the Panthers. His best year was 2004, as he had 101 tackles in 12 games.
