Unfortunately, Morgan has failed to live up to those expectations over the first two years of his NFL career and if he continues to struggle this upcoming season–it may be time for the Titans to consider whether or not it’s worth keeping him around beyond 2012.
When the Titans selected Morgan back in 2010, he was coming off a three-year career at Georgia Tech in which he recorded 18 sacks and 112 tackles. At the time, he was considered one of the top defensive ends in the country and seemed to have tremendous potential when making the transition to the NFL.
Instead, Morgan has appeared in just 19 games for Tennessee over the last two years while recording just four sacks and 25 total tackles. For a former first-round pick–that’s nothing short of embarrassing for Morgan.
