State police booked Morgan on charges of DWI and for driving without a license. The police report indicated police found Morgan asleep behind the wheel on the side of an expressway. The trooper noticed that Morgan seemed intoxicated with bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol, according to the report obtained by The Times-Picayune. His blood-alcohol content registered 0.218 percent, more than twice the 0.08 percent legal limit, according to the report.

Morgan was expected to have an increased role for the Saints this season with Devery Henderson off the team. With 379 yards last year, Morgan was the favorite to take over as the Saints' No. 3 wide receiver and top vertical threat. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

The Saints and Morgan declined to comment to The Times-Picayune about the report.
