RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Morgan was rolling with 4.5 sacks through 10 games in 2015 before landing on IR with a torn labrum. The teamís ineffective pass rush in his absence prompted Tennessee to bring in more outside linebacker depth, but the veteran should be a prominent part of the rotation at the position after bringing down the quarterback 23.5 times over the last four years.

2015

Morgan should start at outside linebacker alongside newly acquired Brian Orakpo in Tennessee's 3-4 defense. The 26-year-old has been the spitting image of health in recent years, having played in 62 of a possible 64 games since 2011. Morgan recorded 63 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 2014, and could improve on those numbers under new assistant head coach Dick LeBeau.

2014

Morgan is on track to remain in the start mix for the Titans, while transitioning from defensive end to outside linebacker. He'll look to build on his IDP numbers after a 2013 season in which he accumulated six sacks but just 34 tackles in 15 games.

2013

Morgan is expected to start opposite Kamerion Wimbley at DE in 2013.

2011

He was showing promise in his rookie season until a knee injury took him out for the remainder of the season in week four. He is coming back after a lot of hard work in the off season to hopefully make a significant difference in the Tennessee pass rush.

2010

Morgan was drafted with the Titans' first round pick in 2010 and is expected to come in and make an impact as a pass-rushing defensive end. He will likely be a back-up in the beginning of the year but should see plenty of playing time and if he impresses, may step in as a starter who will also get snaps against the run.
