Four months after returning to the NFL, former Carolina Panthers' linebacker Dan Morgan has decided to retire again, due to continued injuries. Morgan, a one-time Pro Bowler with Carolina, signed with the New Orleans Saints in 2008, but never played.

Morgan spent seven years with Carolina, starting in 2001, but never played in all 16 regular-season games. The 2004 season was his best, having 101 tackles in 12 games. In 2005, he played in a career-high of 13 games in the regular season. He played in four games during his last two seasons with the Panthers.

Morgan's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has said Morgan's decision was final, meaning that he's done for good. He will now focus on his restaurant business in Charlotte. He also wants to spend more time with his wife and kids.
