New York Jets Sign DaJuan Morgan

The Jets signed a safety today, DaJuan Morgan.

Morgan was a third-round pick by Kansas City in 2008. He was with the Colts last season.

The tendency might be to view him as a replacement for James Ihedigbo, but he has not really accomplished enough to just waltz into a roster spot. He is likely camp fodder who might stick on special teams.

Morgan fails one of my key tests. Despite being a third round pick, the Chiefs gave up on him after two seasons. Teams do not give up on high picks unless all hope is lost because they are such big investments. For Kansas City to cut ties so soon is striking. He did not see much action in 2010 as a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

He is mainly a run stopper. In two career starts, it is worth noting that he registered 14 tackles. His path to the roster goes through Mike Westhoff, though.
