Saints News, 9/4/15: Pierre Warren in, Joe Morgan out After Saints' Final Roster Audition?

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: (S Pierre Warren): The second-year safety made a costly mistake, blowing coverage on a 77-yard touchdown pass when he took a poor angle. But for a guy on the bubble like Warren, special teams matter most. (WR Joe Morgan): Joe struggled with a fumble (that he recovered), a contested deep ball that he failed to reel in and a bad drop that bounced in the air and was intercepted. The Saints can look past one bad game if they like what Joe has done all summer. But if this game was the tie-breaker, he’s in trouble.
