Morris went undrafted out of the University of Miami in 2014 and spent the season on Jacksonville's practice squad.
In the preseason for Jacksonville, the 23-year-old quarterback completed 23 of 42 passes (54.8 percent) with one touchdown for a 79.7 passer rating. The Jaguars released him Saturday when they opted to keep just two quarterbacks, starter Blake Bortles and veteran backup Chad Henne.
Morris was a two-year starter in college for the Hurricanes. He finished his college career with 49 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions. He passed for 3,028 yards his senior year.
