Anthony Morgan played college ball at Tennessee from 1988-90.
Dangerous WR and return man, had 35 receptions for 546 yards and 3 TDs, and 37 kick returns for 862 yards over college career.
Selected in the 5th round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears.
Bears used Morgan primarily as a receiver over his time with the franchise.
In both ’91 and ’92, he caught two 80+ yard TD receptions.
Anointed a starter for the ’93 season, Morgan oddly found himself the odd man out by August.
He’d be a mid season replacement by the Packers, and spend the next few years, on and off the franchise roster.
Still Anthony managed to hang on for a Super Bowl victory with the Packers.
In both ’94 and ’95 while in Green Bay, he caught 4 TDs in each season, and posted at least 40 receptions.
Cut by the Packers in ’96,he’d retire soon thereafter.
A special shout out to Chris for tracking this one down who had flown under the radar for some time. He signed these two nice cards for me, as another member of the Action Packed 1991 Rookies set is down. I like his autograph. It’s very linear, but the loops give it a great accent.
Well I thought after training camp and cleaning up at HEB a few years ago in San Antonio I was done with Robert Jones, but then I realized I glaringly missed his Skybox 1992 card; An absolutely glorious card catching him in his college duds. As of 2022, the 1993 Skybox Premium or ‘Colors’ set has become a big draw to me, especially based on how it looks. I just love how these cards are designed. With this I’m probably done with Robert, all though I wouldn’t be surprised if I missed a Classic 92 blister card or something out there I still wanted to get him to sign.
Big (6’6″, 357), man-mountain Lincoln Kennedy was an outstanding lineman for the Washington Huskies from 1988-92.
First team All-American in his senior campaign, earning player of the game honors 7 times that year.
Started originally as a defensive lineman, but was quickly moved to OL after redshirt freshman season, deployed effectively at both G and T.
First round pick (9th overall) of the Atlanta Falcons in 1993.
Had a rough transition to the NFL and by ’95 was traded to the Raiders for a 5th Round pick.
Moved to right tackle and solidified himself as an upper echelon player, playing for the Raiders for the next 7 seasons.
Joined the NFL Network in 2004 on NFL Total Access.
Toyed around with a comeback in 2005 with the Dallas Cowboys, but failed his physical.
Played in the Arena Football League for the Tampa Bay Storm from 2007-’08 and 2010.
Currently is in radio, working for Fox Sports.

Kennedy was a great player who quietly flew under the radar until his retirement for me. I love his love for the sport, and how after he retired he decided to come back, so much so he opted to play in the Arena League to keep it sated.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
