He was the most sought-after free agent in the league.

And throughout training camp, Omarr Morgan has shown why.

The Los Angeles native will be the starting right corner back for the Edmonton Eskimos barring injury this season.

"Both Morgan and (Stanford) Samuels are a treat to watch," said Eskimos head coach Danny Maciocia.

"Hopefully they can get all that figured out as far as that unlimited motion when those receivers are going to stack behind one another.

"Hopefully, they'll get all their calls down. Once they figure that out we'll be all that much better for it."

Morgan spent seven years with the Saskatchewan Roughriders before being lured to Edmonton.

The five-foot-nine, 186-pound defensive back is a three-time CFL all-star, four time West Division all-star and six-time CFL Players Association all-star.

"Camp has been great so far," Morgan said.

"I couldn't have asked for a better camp. Danny's been good with the practices, our tempo is going great, I'm feeling good and I'm ready to go.

"The coaches are doing a good job in meetings and on the field getting it all together. It seems like everybody knows what they're doing. The coaches told us last night that this is probably the best unit as far as recognizing and learning things."

Samuels was another highly sought free agent.

The Miami native played his first two CFL seasons in Winnipeg before signing with the Eskimos.
