Titans’ Derrick Morgan ‘learned a lot’ from Jared Allen

Former NFL defensive end Jared Allen understands how to get to the opposing quarterback.Allen finished an accomplished 12-year playing career as a four-time All-Pro with 136 total sacks, which ranks 11th all-time in league history.So, when Allen moved to Nashville last year and offered to share knowledge on his craft with the Tennessee Titans, his gesture was welcomed during the early stages of the offseason workout program.”Anything we can get around our players that can help us, great,” first-year Titans coach Mike Vrabel said, via Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official website. “Having an idea of things he could do to help our team and to help our players, we were able to get him out here and work with some guys in the Phase 2 program where a lot of that is individual drills and position specific development.”The more he can be around here and working with one or two guys, I think that is key, trying to do things to help our players improve.”Outside linebacker Derrick Morgan, whose 7.5 sacks in 2017 led the Titans defense, appreciated spending time with Allen.
