The Saints have signed Morgan, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Morgan, who caught just 10 passes for 70 yards and a TD in 14 games for the Bears last season, slots in as a depth wideout for the Saints behind the team's top options at the position, Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks.

Morgan finished the 2014 season with 10 receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown. He also carried the ball on two occasions, picking up 30 yards.

Morgan remained on the roster all season and suited up for 14 games, but with at least four superior receiving options ahead of him in the pecking order for targets, the 29-year-old was never able to see much involvement. He'll be a free agent in the offseason, and there's little incentive for the new regime to keep him around in Chicago.

Morgan had two yards on two receptions in the Bears' Week 16 loss to the Lions.

The two catches were Morgan's most since Week 4, but as the yards per reception total suggests, he's not much of a threat for the Bears. Don't expect him to make much of an impact in Sunday's season finale against the Vikings.

Morgan gained 21 yards on his first rushing attempt of the season in Monday's loss to the Saints, but failed to reel in his lone target in the passing game.

The absence of Brandon Marshall (ribs) the past two weeks has allowed Morgan to pick up over 40 snaps in both of the Bears' games, but it's resulted in only a minor uptick in usage. With Marquess Wilson locked in as the Bears' No. 2 receiver in place of Marshall, there's simply not enough targets to go around for Morgan.

Morgan caught one pass for eight yards in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys.

After falling behind by as many as four touchdowns in the game, the Bears were forced to abandon the running game, employing three- and four-receiver sets in many of their second-half play calls. With Brandon Marshall lost earlier in the game with a rib injury, Morgan moved up the depth chart to become the No. 3 receiver, seeing a season-high four targets. If Marshall's injury keeps him out of action in Week 15 against the Saints, Morgan would likely see a similar amount of usage.

Morgan (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Morgan's 10 targets are scattered across four of his nine active outings this season, confirming his status as a fantasy non-entity.

Morgan (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Morgan is ready to go after missing last week's game, but it's hard to see him making a fantasy impact as Chicago's fourth wideout.

Morgan (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago reports.

The Bears' passing attack focuses primarily on the three-headed monster of Brandon Marshall (ankle), Alshon Jeffery, and Martellus Bennett (shoulder), leaving scraps for Jay Cutler's remaining options, including Morgan (10 targets in eight games this season).

Morgan (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Morgan didn't practice all week, but even if he ended up active it's hard to see him playing much with Marquess Wilson (collarbone) back in the mix.
