Former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan is scheduled to visit the Chiefs Wednesday, according to a source.

Morgan, who missed 2013 with an ACL injury suffered in training camp, entered the league in 2011 with the Saints as an undrafted free agent.

He started his college career at Illinois (2006-07) before finishing at Walsh.

Morgan, 26, suffered his first season-ending knee injury prior to the start of the 2011 regular season.

He rebounded in 2012 and appeared in 14 games with five starts recording 10 catches for 379 yards, a whopping 37.9 yards per catch average, and three touchdowns, which included an 80-yard scoring effort against the Green Bay Packers.

A healthy Morgan would’ve provided the high-powered Saints offense and quarterback Drew Brees another vertical threat in 2013. He clocked a 4.40 at the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, according to his draft prospect profile at NFLDraftScout.com.

However, Morgan suffered his latest second season-ending knee injury early in 2013 training camp after being tackled by then-rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro.

Morgan, who is listed at 6-foot-1, 184 pounds, entered the 2014 offseason as a restricted free agent.

But the Saints didn’t offer Morgan a tender, which would have allowed an opportunity to match an offer.
