Titans defense gets mentoring from former standout Allen

Former NFL star Jared Allen accepted Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel’s invitation to share some tricks of the trade with his team’s pass rushers. Allen, who moved to Nashville last year, collected 136 sacks during his 12-year career.

Linebacker Derrick Morgan, who led the team with 7 1/2 sacks last season, said he appreciated the 36-year-old Allen making the time to help the club. Morgan and the rest of the Titans will have an opportunity to show precisely how much they learned when the team reports to training camp later this month.
