Titans Officially Part Ways With Former Star Player
Wednesday was a tough day for the Tennessee Titans. Not only did the team wave goodbye to one of its top receivers in Robert Woods, but it also released one of its star offensive linemen.
The Titans announced that after nine years together, they are moving on from three-time Pro Bowler Taylor Lewan.
Titans Release Taylor Lewan
While sad for Tennessee fans, the news hardly comes as a surprise. Lewan himself recently predicted that he would be cut, and sure enough that's exactly what happened.
Lewan and Woods are both cap casualties for the Titans, who are trying to clear up cap space ahead of free agency. The 31-year-old Lewan also figured he was expendable after missing significant time with injuries in two the past three seasons.
Still, it's a disappointing ending for the former first-round draft pick's time with Tennessee. He gave everything he had to the organization over the past decade, anchoring the offensive line at left tackle and making three straight Pro Bowls from 2016-18.
Time will tell if Lewan catches on with another team or decides to call it a career. Either way, the Titans will surely miss his presence next year.
