The Philadelphia Soul could lose Donovan Morgan for the second time this month.
Morgan previously left for the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League on July 9th. However, a few days later, he returned to the Soul.
The Destroyers, like many of the United Football League teams, are having financial problems. Morgan could have made about $50,000 playing for the Destroyers if he stayed there, according to a UFL executive.
Morgan returned to the Soul for the final game of their season on July 22nd. But now he’s a free agent again.
Morgan has received interest from NFL teams. According to Soul GM Tom Goodhines, the NFL teams have not been identified just yet.
Morgan has previously played in the NFL with the New York Jets, Houston Texans, and Kansas City Chiefs. He was also apart of the Buffalo Bills training camp in 2007.
Morgan played in three games with the Texans in 2005. He had four receptions for 42 yards. He did not see any time with the Jets or the Chiefs.
According to Goodhines, it would take the right situation for Morgan to return to the NFL. Since being apart of the Bills training camp in 2007, he has been apart of the Arena Football League, the af2 (arenafootball2), and the CIFL (Continental Indoor Football League).
Morgan had a stellar first season with the Soul. He had 121 receptions for 1,957 yards and 37 touchdowns.
The 121 receptions were the second-highest in his career, with 123 receptions in 2010 with the Tulsa Talons. The 1,957 yards was a career-high.
The 37 touchdowns were 15 behind the 52, and career-high, that he had with the Talons in 2010. He also had his 100th touchdown with the Soul, as well.
He also rushed the ball six times for six yards and a touchdown.
