    Yea, he stated that he had some other things that he really wanted to get into so I think he wanted that more than playing any more football.

    Heard on the radio he finished sixth in sacks in franchise history. That means the Titans haven't had many big-time rushers over the years.

    I don't think he ever played up to being the player the Titans thought they were taking in the first but he had his moments. I just wish there were more of them.

    He averaged less than 5 sacks per season. He just played a long time.

    For instance, KVB is 7th in history with 38.5. He was a Titan 5 seasons.

    He consistently won his battle. And I really can't remember him messing up at all. We just didn't have a lot of guys around him to take advantage of that.

    He just wasn't the big play guy that one would hope for from a 1st round pick. And he was hurt a lot. He said 9 surgeries in 9 years.

    This is sad but true. We drafted him out of need. IIRC, Giants were one pick ahead of us and grabbed JPP. I think we had him targeted. And we just went next highest grade DE after that. Big drop off.

    Morgan was a good team member. Honestly- a depth player- never an impact player. Wasn't worth the mid 1st round pick we used on him.

    He's a smart- team guy. I'm sure JRob liked having him around. He never showed his azz the way a lot of other players have done. I wish him the best.
