    Jets' James Morgan: No promotion imminent

    Coach Adam Gase revealed that James Morgan may not make an appearance on the active roster over the remainder of the season, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. "I think we're a ways off from that," Gase said.The offensive-minded coach cited a lack of preseason experience as a key reason for why Morgan is struggling to find playing time. It seems that with Sam Darnold (shoulder) ruled out for New York's Week 11 matchup against the Chargers, Gase and the New York Jets would prefer to add a quarterback from the practice squad rather than turning to Morgan as a backup to Joe Flacco. The rookie fourth-round draft choice from Florida International has not yet made an appearance for the Jets in 2020.

    Jets' James Morgan: Will not suit up Week 2

    James Morgan (coach's decision) is inactive for New York's Week 2 matchup against the 49ers, per the New York Jets' official Twitter account.The fourth-round draft choice currently resides on the Jets' depth chart as the No. 3 option at quarterback, though he likely will be buried in the No. 4 position once Joe Flacco (neck) is able to return to action. Morgan remains a developmental backup for Gang Green after throwing for 40 touchdowns and over 5,300 yards for Florida International the past two years.

    Jets' James Morgan: New York adds in fourth round

    The New York Jets selected James Morgan in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 125th overall.It's unlikely that this pick has anything to do with Sam Darnold, who's likely both far superior to Morgan in the meantime yet also possesses more developmental upside -- Morgan turned 23 in February, while Darnold doesn't turn 23 until June. Morgan is more likely a speculative developmental prospect, one the Jets perhaps hope to flip in a trade after a couple years of backup service behind Darnold. Most recently a starter for Florida International, Morgan (6-foot-4, 229) is a big, strong-armed quarterback who began his career at Bowling Green. The finer points of quarterback play elude Morgan at times, but he has some arm talent to work with.
