High school

Morgan attended and played high school football at South Garland High School in Garland, Texas. In football, he was a three-year letterman. As a junior, he was named as an All-State selection by The Dallas Morning News. As a senior, Morgan was named the Team's Most Valuable Player, was an All-Area selection, All-Conference selection, All-State selection, and an All-America selection.

College career

Morgan spent two years at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, before transferring to Kansas State University. In his two seasons, Morgan became one of only seven KSU players catch more than a hundred passes, and also one of only four players with more than 2,000 receiving yards. He was also the only Wildcat to notch 1,000 receiving yards in two consecutive seasons. Morgan ended his college experience as sixth on the all-time Wildcat receiving list.

Professional career

Morgan was selected in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, where he played until 2004. Morgan was traded to the Dallas Cowboys for Antonio Bryant, following a public dispute between Bryant and Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells. Morgan would have a rather mediocre season with the Cowboys in 2004, despite his rapid elevation on the depth chart following an injury to Terry Glenn. During the following offseason, Morgan performed poorly in an unexpected depth chart battle against Patrick Crayton and Parcells began to perceive him as uncompetitive. He was released in order for the Cowboys to pick up Peerless Price off waivers and was later signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. During the 2005 regular season, Morgan recorded nine receptions for 150 yards and two touchdowns. On September 3, 2006, Morgan was cut by the Steelers, along with 21 other players, as the team reached its final roster. Morgan then signed with the Broncos on September 18 as a backup wide receiver. On September 1, 2007 he was released by the Broncos.
