    Hey guys, I'm from Tulsa and have season tickets for multiple years now to the AF2 team, the Talons. I saw every home game in person, and 1 away game, and Donovan Morgan has some "ups". He's got quite the vertical jump and can go over the top and get the job done. Granted he will see much tougher DB's in the NFL, I hope to see him do good on the Texans squad.

    Another Tulsan here... You are going to be very impressed with Morgan that man is a great player with agility, speed, massive vertical skills and a whole lot of heart. He'll go all out all day every play for you guys. I think the fact he had offers in hand from a couple of teams talks about his skills a great deal. I hope he does as well for you all as he has done for us and the Talons... We sure are gonna miss him... :crying:

    Maybe he and Hodgdon could square off in practice. Real wrestler vs Fake wrestler.

    I don't think the wrestler is the same Donovan Morgan. The wrestler's date of birth is 1976.....that would make him almost 30. From what is being said about the football player Morgan, it doesn't seem like he would be that old.

    Well, Donovan Morgan just went from AF2 to the NFL. If you will re-read what has already been posted here, you'll find that Morgan had previously signed with the Jets but got injured while in NFL Europe. He was at a community college when he signed with the Jets. After recovering, I guess the Jets didn't think he'd still have 'it' and released him. Morgan then went to the AFL then came to Tulsa.

    So it's NOT that the AF2 is for those who don't make AFL. It's just like college is a stepping stone to the NFL. The AF2 is a stepping stone to get to the AFL or, like in Morgan's case, to the NFL.

    Why don't you wait to make decisions about Morgan until you actually SEE what he can do. ;)

    Was Morgan a good special teams player? If he can't play special teams, his chances is of making the team are slim and none.
