NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Sports agent Drew Rosenhaus says New Orleans Saints linebacker Dan Morgan has decided to retire from the NFL a second time.
Rosenhaus announced Morgan's decision on his Web site Monday, saying Morgan wanted to thank the Saints for another chance, but that injuries "would not let him continue."
Saints spokesman Greg Bensel says the Saints have not received anything official from Morgan.
The 30-year-old Morgan first retired before last season after seven years with the Carolina Panthers because of multiple concussions. He was trying to make a comeback with the Saints, but left minicamp last weekend with a calf strain.
Morgan was the 11th overall draft pick by the Panthers in 2001.
