Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan is adding his voice to the national conversation about cannabis by asking the NFL to research marijuana as an alternative method for pain management.

“I think for the NFL to say that cannabis does not benefit the long-term health of its players without actually having gone and done the research — I don’t think that’s an accurate statement,” Morgan said in an interview with Yahoo Global News anchor Katie Couric.

Morgan, the Titans' first-round draft pick in 2010, has 27.5 sacks in 76 career games and is recovering from a shoulder injury that prematurely ended his 2015 season. Last year, he signed a four-year, $27 million contract with $10.5 million guaranteed.
