Four months after starting a comeback to the NFL, Saints LB Dan Morgan has decided to retire again because of unspecified injuries, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, wrote on his Twitter page.
“Dan Morgan has informed the Saints that he has decided to retire due (to) continued injuries,” Rosenhaus said. “Dan would like to thank the Saints for the chance to come back this year, but injuries would not let him continue his career. His decision is final, and he will be moving on to focus on his restaurant business in Charlotte. Dan also wants to be able to spend more time with his wife and children.”
A Saints spokesman said the team hadn’t officially heard anything from Morgan or his representatives.
Morgan, a one-time Pro Bowler with the Panthers, signed with the Saints in 2008 but never played in a game with the team. He retired last year, also citing injuries, but announced in February that he was attempting a comeback.
Morgan spent seven seasons with the Panthers, starting in 2001, but he never played in all 16 regular-season games. He played in just four total games in his last two seasons in Carolina.
Morgan’s best season came in 2004, when he made 101 tackles in 12 games and was named to the Pro Bowl. He played in a career-high 13 games the next season.
