Yep. Tennessee’s top draft pick this year, Derrick Morgan, was arrested for speeding and driving with a suspended license.
So I guess you call a guy from Tennessee a Tennessean:
Titans defensive end Derrick Morgan was arrested in Georgia on Wednesday night on charges of speeding and driving with a suspended license.
Morgan was on his way back to Nashville for Thursday’s minicamp practice. He was pulled over on I-75 in Resaca, Ga., about 37 miles south of Chattanooga.
Gordon County police officer Raymond Holcomb said Morgan was traveling 91 mph in a 70 mph speed limit zone when he was pulled over by Resaca police just after 5 p.m.
Morgan’s bond was posted and he was released from jail roughly three hours later, Holcomb said. Morgan has a court date scheduled on July 26.
Titans Coach Jeff Fisher could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
The Titans selected Morgan, who lives in Atlanta and played at Georgia Tech, with their first-round pick in the NFL Draft this year.
The Cincinnati Bengals are happy someone’s finally taking their place as the most troublesome team in the NFL.
