Default Mays Out, Morgan In......

PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers added a new player to their receiving corps today when they signed free agent veteran Quincy Morgan to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not released.



To make room for Morgan on their roster, Pittsburgh released four-year veteran receiver Lee Mays.



Morgan (6-1, 215), a five-year veteran from Kansas State, was originally selected in the second round (33rd overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. He played with the Browns for more than three seasons before being traded to the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 19, 2004, in exchange for wide receiver Antonio Bryant.



In four seasons, Morgan has caught 155 passes for 2,316 yards (14.9 avg.) and 15 touchdowns. He has also returned 11 kickoffs for 267 yards (24.3 avg.). Morgan enjoyed his finest season in 2002 when he set career highs with 56 receptions, 964 receiving yards (17.2 avg.) and seven touchdowns.



Mays, who was originally selected by the Steelers in the sixth round (202nd overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft, had caught 11 passes for 154 yards (14.0 avg.) and returned 36 kickoffs for 750 yards (20.8 avg.) in his three seasons with the team. He missed part of the 2005 preseason with an injured hamstring.

hell yeah, i guess they read when i said we should take a look at him. he's going to be a good pick up imo, i saw him a few times with the cowboys but he had vinny throwing to him so of course he didn't look great but when he was on the field i liked what i saw from him

Lets hope he's better than Mays, what number reciever has he been on his teams?

This shows that the Steelers didnt just like Lee Mays, because we were willing to cut him for someone else. Shows that Gibson must have had something wrong with him, because we decided to keep Mays over him.

Isnt he a pain in the butt??? I think that was the problem in Cleve. Oh well. he is a good size wideout. And he always played well against us. The receiveing corp. did improve today.

Anyone is better than Lee Mays thats for sure. Since I live in Clownstown I get to watch most of there games. This guy could be really good as long as he can hang on to the football. Good move by us hopefull he keeps his head into the game.

I like the move.... Morgan is definitly worth a look, and I support anything that results in Lee Mays getting cut.

I agree with both of you. He has to be an improvement over Mays, there is know way that he cant be.

Ward , ARE, Wilson, Washington, Morgan starting to look good.
