When Josh Morgan returned to D.C. to play for his hometown Redskins in 2012, he arrived with the promise of an emerging receiver. The opportunity to play in his hometown, for the team he rooted for as a kid, should bring out the best Morgan had to offer.

After two years of playing in Washington, Morgan is now moving on to play for the Chicago Bears, as reported by multiple news outlets. Morgan never emerged for the Redskins, eventually landing on the inactive list late in the 2013 season.

In two years under coach Mike Shanahan, Morgan played in 30 games with 68 catches for more than 700 yards. Rather pedestrian numbers for a player the Redskins paid a guaranteed $7.5 million.

It had been clear the Redskins moved on from Morgan for sometime, first when the team signed Andre Roberts from the Arizona Cardinals, and cemented when Washington added former Eagles WR DeSean Jackson.
