Morgan Newton is a former American football tight end. Newton played college football for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Early life

Newton attended Carmel High School in Carmel, Indiana. As a junior in 2008, Newton won the Indiana Mr. Football Award.

College career

Newton missed the first five games of his true freshman season and was intended to redshirt behind starter Mike Hartline but Hartline suffered a season-ending injury in the fifth game of the year, a loss at South Carolina that left Kentucky 2-3 on the season.[1] Newton then became the starter and led Kentucky to a 5-2 record in its final seven regular season games, which enabled Kentucky to play in the 2009 Music City Bowl.[2] In only a half season of play, Newton completed his true freshman season completing 75 of 135 passes (55.6%) for 706 yards and 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions, good for a 109.71 quarterback rating.[2] Newton also rushed for 130 yards and 2 touchdowns.[2]

Entering 2010, Newton faced competition from Ryan Mossakowski and former starter Mike Hartline for Kentucky's starting quarterback slot.

Hartline won the starting position and didn't give Newton much playing time in 2010 while he watched Hartline have a highlight reel season. Much of Newton's playing time came in the game against Eastern Kentucky University, and in the Birmingham Bowl against Pittsburgh (Hartline was out due to suspension).

Professional career

New York Giants

On May 17, 2013, he was signed by the New York Giants and it was announced he would play tight end. Newton was waived on May 30, 2013.
