Bears WR Josh Morgan says assault incident almost ‘over with’
Josh Morgan said Tuesday he felt like a rookie, coming to the Bears to fight for a wide receiver job after two seasons with the Redskins.
And he said there was one advantage to it — no longer playing in his hometown of Washington, D.C.
“Guys don’t really recognize you, they don’t really know who you are,” he said. “For me, that’s kind of fun.
“I just want to be recognized for what I do on the football field and helping my team win games.
“It’s kind of fun not being the hometown hero and not having all that attention — and everybody stabbing at you trying to get in your pockets and make news.”
Along those lines, Morgan said his April assault arrest is almost settled. He was accused of punching a man outside a Washington, D.C., nightclub, days after signing with the Bears. He maintained afterward he never touched the man.
“Pretty much,” he said Tuesday, “it is over with.”
