Ex-Jets QB Joins AFC Contender, Could Replace Ben Roethlisberger
An ex-New York Jets quarterback will have another opportunity to prove his worth.
Gang Green played musical chairs in the NFL this offseason.
There are only 53 spots on your final roster and 16 on the practice squad.
When you get down to the wire, you have to make some tough business decisions, and the Jets did just that when they tried to sneak James Morgan, a former fourth-round pick, onto the practice squad.
Morgan cleared waivers after being released and was offered the opportunity to rejoin the team, but he declined and instead joined the Carolina Panthers practice squad.
According to Dennis Waszack Jr., after being released this week, he quickly found a new opportunity with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

When he first joined the Panthers just days before their Week 1 matchup against the Jets, it raised a lot of questions about his legitimacy.
Opposing teams frequently bring in a recently released player from the team they’re playing to perform a brain drain session.
They have no long-term interest in the player in those cases; they’re simply using him for the duration of the game and then moving on.
Morgan was with the Panthers from September 2 until this past week, when he was released on November 12. There were some initial questions, but they were irrelevant because Morgan was with the Panthers from September 2 until this past week, when he was released.
The decision turned out to be beneficial to both parties.
With Zach Wilson, Mike White, Joe Flacco, and Josh Johnson, Gang Green is in a great position.
Unfortunately, due to injury, every passer this season has been involved.
Morgan, on the other hand, received a paycheck for two and a half months while working as a clipboard holder, the best job in all of sports.
A New Chance Has Appeared
Following his release, Morgan has joined the Steelers practice squad…
