The roster additions, announced Monday by general manager Mickey Loomis, include linebacker Henry Coley, kicker Zach Hocker, offensive lineman Antonio Johnson and receiver Kyle Prater.
Morgan was drafted by San Francisco in 2008. He played four seasons with the 49ers, two seasons with Washington and with Chicago last season. He has 209 career receptions for 2,558 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Coley, Johnson and Prater were undrafted rookies.

Hocker was a seventh-round draft pick by Washington in 2014, but was cut after preseason.
