Morgan is the sixth member of the Chiefs 2008 draft to class to agree to terms, joining fourth-round selection WR Will Franklin (105th overall), fifth-round selection CB Brandon Carr (140th overall), sixth-round pick T Barry Richardson (170th overall), sixth-round choice WR Kevin Robinson (182nd overall) and seventh-round pick DE Brian Johnston (210th overall).
What's the hold up with TE Michael Merritt, the Kansas City Chiefs' other 7th round draft pick? You'd think he'd be one of the first to get under contract. One issue may be the position at which Merritt will be paid. He comes into the NFL as a tight end but could probably be used on the offensive line as well.
The signing of Morgan is good news of course. I mentioned earlier in the week how these signings seem to accelerate as camp approaches.
Here are the Chiefs who have yet to sign:
DT Glenn Dorsey
OT Branden Albert
CB Brandon Flowers
RB Jamaal Charles
TE Brad Cottam
TE Michael Merritt
I'm only worried about the first three getting here on time. Charles, Cottam and Merritt should fall in line by the time training camp begins next Thursday.
