Biography

PRO: Derrick Morgan enjoyed a productive 2013 season and continued to show the promise that made him the Titans’ 2010 first-round draft choice.    He played in 15 games at defensive end and ranked second on the team with six sacks and eight quarterback pressures.  In 2012, he started all 16 games and led the team with 6.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures.  In 2011, the Georgia Tech product appeared in 15 games in his second season and led the team with 20 quarterback pressures after returning to the field following a rookie campaign that was cut short by a season-ending knee injury in the team’s fourth game.  Morgan is an explosive defender equally adept at rushing the passer and stopping the run. Morgan has a reputation as a gritty player with a non-stop motor, and he has the ability to play on either side of the defensive line or at outside linebacker.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2013, Morgan finished second on the Titans with six sacks and eight quarterback pressures.
•    In 2012, Morgan led the team with 6.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures, while also posting a career-high 66 tackles.
•    In 2011, Morgan appeared in 15 games and led the team with 20 quarterback pressures.  He also tallied 47 tackles, 2.5 sacks, three tackles for loss and two passes defensed.
•    As a rookie in 2010, saw action in four games and amassed 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks before being placed on season-ending injured reserve.
•    In 2009, Morgan’s junior year, he won Conference Defensive Player of the Year honors after leading the ACC with 12.5 sacks and finishing second in the conference with 18.5 tackles for loss.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Morgan changed his jersey number from 90 to 91 during the 2012 offseason.  He is familiar with the number 91, having worn it during his three seasons at Georgia Tech.  Former Titans defensive lineman Jason Jones wore 91 in Morgan’s first two seasons with the club.
•    Morgan credits his mother, Pamela Wooden, as his primary role model in life.  He also says that she should be credited with his football success, since, even as a single parent, she managed to take him to every practice and every game during his youth.
•    Morgan experienced the 2010 NFL Draft as one of the players invited by the league to Radio City Music Hall. He was surrounded by his mother, father, grandparents and other loved ones when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced his name with the 16th overall pick.
