Former Titans pass rusher Derrick Morgan announces his retirement

After nine years in the NFL, pass rusher Derrick Morgan announced his retirement — or “transition” as he calls it — this morning on Instagram.

Morgan was the Titans first round pick (16th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft and spent his entire professional career in Tennessee, tallying 106 starts, 44.5 sacks, 306 tackles, 112 quarterback hits, 54 tackles for loss, and 5 forced fumbles. His sack total ranks 6th in franchise history behind just Ray Childress (75.5), William Fuller (59), Sean Jones (57.5), Jevon Kearse (52), and Jurrell Casey (46).
