New Bears receiver Josh Morgan was arrested and charged early Sunday with simple assault after allegedly punching a man in the upper lip outside a nightclub in Washington, according to a police report.
The report said a verbal alter-
cation began when the man looked at a woman who was with Morgan.
The Bears signed Morgan, a six-year veteran, to a one-year contract April 21 to compete for a job as their third or fourth
receiver. He also has some experience returning kicks.
‘‘We are aware of Josh Morgan’s presence at a weekend
incident in Washington, D.C.,’’ the Bears said in a statement. ‘‘We are currently gathering
information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the event.’’
