    How ironic is it that Quincy has a Super Bowl ring--while TO doesn't?


    Steelers Sign Veteran Wide Receiver Quincy Morgan and First-Year Defensive End Shaun Nua

    The Steelers re-signed two more players today as they inked unrestricted free agent wide receiver Quincy Morgan and exclusive rights free agent defensive end Shaun Nua to contracts. Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

    Morgan (6-1, 215), who will enter his second season with the Steelers and sixth in the NFL, was signed by Pittsburgh prior to the first regular-season game in 2005. He was originally drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the second round (33rd overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft before being traded to the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 19, 2004.

    Morgan finished the 2005 regular season with nine catches for 150 yards with two touchdowns. He was also one of the Steelers' two kick returners as he totaled 23 returns for 583 yards (25.3 avg.), which ranked fifth in the AFC. Morgan was placed on Reserved/Injured list on Jan. 10 after suffering an ankle injury on a kick return in the AFC Wild Card Game at Cincinnati.

    Nua (6-5, 280) was the Steelers first of two seventh-round selections (228th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft. He was signed to the practice squad following training camp and was then promoted to the active roster on Nov. 23, but did not see action in any games.

    The Steelers aren't exactly loaded at the WR position after losing Randle-El to the Skins. Hines Ward is a year older. Look for them to draft a WR and a RB on the first day in April's draft.

    It's sad we couldn't salvage this guy. Isn't he almost 30 years old?

    Other then Kick Returner he really does not have much value.

    And he has his hands to thank for it.

    But I know it is much easier to curse out managment.

    Exactly. Scrubs get rings all the time..... they're called backups.

    Garrett was a good backup. He filled in several times over the years and usually did very well. Look at Thankgiving 1994 for example. My daughter is a Cowboy fan today mainly because of that game.

    What was surprising to see was that Morgan actually signed. I mean....I don't have the numbers in front of me, but it was the smallest signing I have seen yet especially in regards to him being a vet and how small his bonus was (like 500k or less). Goodness.....he may have dropped the pen but it was just because he got butta fingers.

    Yeah, but he lead to one super bowl and then the year he got injured and Brady came in, he won the championship game leading to the superbowl....so at least he was apart of it to some extent...

    Yeah but Garrett's rings won't make his finger turn green.

    Morgan had what like 20 receptions. When it comes to back ups in most cases it isn't what talent you have or don't have it really depends on luck when you move to a new team. QM was about as reliable as zuriel smith.
