Ex Titans LB Derrick Morgan Retiring

Recommended Posts

Former Tennessee Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan is retiring from the NFL at the age of 30, as he looks to turn his attention to making a more significant impact outside of football.

 

Morgan spent nine seasons with the Titans after they selected him with the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. He finishes with 44.5 sacks and 305 tackles for his career.

 

The 2018 season was the last of a four-year, $27 million deal Morgan signed with the Titans in 2014. He started 12 games for the Titans in 2018 and missed three games while dealing with knee and shoulder injuries.

Morgan not only was a 1st round pick he also signed two extensions. He's made over 40 mill and shouldn't have to worry about money the rest of his life if he was smart. 

 

Seems like he was, good luck to him. Was never a superstar, but a good player.

He was clearly at the point where no one wanted him, at least not for any significant money. Time to hang em up.

 

But he was a dependable if unspectacular player for the Titans for close to a decade. And he did a better job of converting to a 3-4 OLB than I expected he could.

I guess you can call his career a success from most players point of view. 

 

He was a solid player for most of his career. Never outstanding, but he wasn't a complete slouch either. 

 

And at the very least he had the integrity to not ask the Titans if he could come back as a back up.

Going by his production last year it looked like he retired last July! In all seriousness thanks for the years of solid service and good luck to him going forward.
