Saints News, 11/4/14: Suspended Saints Receiver Joe Morgan: 'I'll Be Back'

New, comments

From Nola.com: Suspended New Orleans Saints receiver Joe Morgan politely declined to discuss his status with a NOLA.com reporter on Monday night, but he made it clear his days with the Saints aren't done. "I'll be back," he said. Morgan was placed on the reserve/suspended list last week. Saints coach Sean Payton refused to elaborate on the reason for the suspension, which is believed to be a team measure, rather than a league-mandated suspension.
