A day after Payton talks of impending lineup changes, Saints release receiver Joe Morgan


NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints have cut receiver Joe Morgan.

The move appeared on Tuesday's list of transactions posted by the NFL.

Morgan's release comes a day after coach Sean Payton, whose team has lost four of five games, warned that he would not rule out any lineup changes.

Morgan had four catches for 92 yards this season. He played during Sunday's 41-10 loss to Carolina.

Payton had stuck with Morgan through injuries that wiped out his 2011 and 2013 seasons and an offseason drunk driving arrest since the receiver joined the club as an undrafted rookie in 2011.

Payton also suspended Morgan for two games earlier this season for undisclosed reasons.
