The ”Stanley Steamer” played 13 of his 14 years in the NFL with the Pats, and after a modest rookie season, he would prove to be in that second tier or close to it among Wide Receivers for a decade. Morgan would go to four Pro Bowls, with three 1,000 plus seasons in Receiving Yards. His strength was his big-play ability, as he averaged more than 20 Yards per Reception in his first six seasons, finishing first in that stat three years in a row (1979-81), and in '79 he was first in Receiving Touchdowns (12).
As a Patriot, Morgan had 10,352 Receiving Yards with 67 Touchdowns, and he would have another 989 Return Yards. He was chosen for the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2007.
