Morris is the second player to sign with the club in two days after performing well on a tryout basis in last weekend’s rookie minicamp. Cornerback Tyler Patmon was signed Wednesday after safety Marvin Robinson was waived/injured.
Morris went to camp with the Houston Texans in 2011. He was a two-time All-MAC selection in 2009-10 while at Temple.
Pughsley, who received a $5,000 signing bonus as an undrafted free agent, suffered a torn biceps that will require surgery. If he clears waivers, he will revert to injured reserve.
