The New Orleans Saints have announced that wide receiver Joe Morgan has re-signed for the franchise on a one-year deal.

The 26-year-old missed all of last season because of an ACL injury.

The Saints were happy to let Morgan hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent, but have now moved to bring him back.

A statement on the Saints' website read: "The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have re-signed wide receiver Joseph Morgan to a one-year contract. The announcement was made by Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis."

It's been an offseason of serious upheaval for the Saints so far - and not all the changes have been well received.

Veterans Will Smith, Roman Harper, Jabari Greer, and Jonathan Vilma were all released last month, while Darren Sproles was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tight end Jimmy Graham - who has been tagged while talks over a new contract continue - took to Twitter to vent his frustration at the amount of changes being made recently.

Now quarterback Drew Brees has admitted it has been difficult seeing a lot of experienced players leave.

"It's tough, because a lot of those guys I've played with for eight years," he explained.

"Eight years, which is rare. I'd say that's very rare in this day and age, to have that amount of time with a group of guys.

"It's going to be a new team in a lot of ways, a lot of young guys stepping up into roles that maybe they haven't been in before and it's where the new leaders emerge."
