"I would like to thank all of my family, friends, and everybody that is close to me for just raising me to be the type of man that I am today," said the humble Morgan through Redskins.com. "Just always supporting, raising me the right way, teaching me the right things."
Morgan has been a lifelong Redskins fan as he grew up in Southeast D.C. near RFK Stadium. His career began by getting drafted in the sixth round of the 2008 draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he played for four seasons. During the 2012 free agency period, Washington was quick to sign the hometown player.
Last season, Morgan battled through hand and foot injuries, yet still played all 16 games. He ended the year with 48 receptions for 510 yards and two touchdowns. After having surgery, he looks to bounce back and put up stronger numbers in 2013. A healthy Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss should also aid Morgan into what is hopefully a breakout year.
