Morgan retires after 9 NFL seasons with Titans

Posted

NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee defensive lineman Derrick Morgan says he's retiring after playing nine NFL seasons for five head coaches.


Morgan announced his decision Monday on social media and with a post on The Players' Tribune website. He wrote that he had a strong indication 2018 would be his final season and that he always wanted to leave the game on his own terms. Morgan says he is thankful to say he accomplished both goals.


The 16th pick overall out of Georgia Tech in 2010, Morgan spent his entire career with Tennessee. He started 106 of 118 games and had 44½ sacks playing defensive and outside linebacker. He had a sack in his lone playoff game, the Titans' wild-card win in Kansas City in January 2018.


Morgan says he sees this as a transition as he works to create more opportunities for the underserved and overlooked.

Titans will cap practice
with concert, fireworks

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are throwing a bit of a party after their only practice at Nissan Stadium during training camp.


The Titans announced Monday that fans are invited to join what the team is calling a kickoff party Aug. 3 after wrapping up a two-hour, padded practice. Country singer Jake Owen, whose hits include "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" and "Beachin," will perform with fireworks wrapping up the night.


Both parking and the practice and concert will be free with no tickets required for one of the Titans' nine practices open to fans during training camp.


The Titans report for training camp July 25.
