Titans have Derrick Morgan on second unit – for now

The Tennessee Titans know they have to beef up their pass rush if they are to get better on defense and become a bona fide contender in the AFC South.

But in recent days, Morgan has been working with the second team at left defensive end, while former practice squad player Pannel Egboh has been running with the ones, according to TitanInsider.com.

Titans coach Mike Munchak said the team only wanted to get a look at Egboh with the first group because they believe he can help them in certain situations, especially as a rush end.

Morgan said he has been told by defensive coordinator Jerry Gray that he is still the starter and he says his goal is double-digits sacks. As for Egboh, who has been on three practice squads in three years, it is a golden opportunity he wants to take full advantage of, if possible.

"It's definitely got me a little excited, but at the same time, at the end of the day, I have to perform. If I'm in there with the ones, I have to perform like I'm a one," the former Stanford player said.
