Taylor Lewan Clarifies Titans Trash Bag Controversy
Former Tennessee Titans lineman Taylor Lewan unintentionally stirred up some controversy on Tuesday when he tweeted a picture of the Titans dropping off his stuff in trash bags at his front door.
Later realizing how that may have looked to some people, Lewan posted a video to his Twitter account on Wednesday passionately defending his former team.

Lewan explained that he asked Tennessee to drop his stuff off and that it was kind of the team to do so. The fact that his stuff arrived in trash bags didn't bother him, and he reiterated how great the organization has been to him throughout his career, even when they cut him last month.
The three-time Pro Bowler also urged fans not to overreact, doing his best to calm down fans who thought the team had disrespected him.
It's good to hear from Lewan himself that the trash bag controversy was simply a misunderstanding and that he and the Titans are still on good terms. After nine seasons with Tennessee, Lewan clearly has nothing but positive feelings and goodwill towards his former employer.
That said, maybe the Titans should use duffel bags next time.
