Josh Morgan: Treated for gunshot wound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan was treated for an apparent, self-inflicted gunshot wound on Jan. 31, FOX Sports reports.

Among the final cuts from Saints training camp in 2015, Morgan failed to take an NFL snap for the first time since he was selected in the 2008 draft. While the recent incident brings with it a misdemeanor charge of reckless use of a firearm, it remains to be seen if he'll be a part of an offseason program in anticipation of the 2016 season.

Bears receiver Josh Morgan jailed on assault charge
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

A week after signing a one-year deal with the Bears, receiver Josh Morgan was arrested following an altercation at a Washington, D.C. area nightclub.

"Not a scratch on his face," Morgan told WRC-TV in Washington via the Chicago Tribune. "I didn't touch him. ... I've always been a standup guy in the community; I've always been a standup guy period. Everybody knows me. Everybody knows how I am. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. What a coincidence that now I signed with the Chicago Bears, now all of a sudden it happened."

Three Redskins' contracts voided
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Three members of the 2013 Redskins -- Josh Morgan, Brandon Meriweather and London Fletcher -- all had their contracts voided Friday, according to USA Today. The move will save the Redskins some cap space. 

Morgan had fallen out of favor in Washington and suffered with some of his worst numbers -- just 214 yards and no touchdowns despite playing 14 games. 

Meriweather had a tumultuous tenure with the Redskins, tallying 76 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and three interceptions over 14 games (two seasons; he hurt his knees in 2012). 

Fletcher, on the other hand, is a candidate for the Hall of Fame after closing out a 16-year career without missing a single game. He is retiring.
