Titans Making “Steady Progress” Towards An Agreement With Rookie OT Taylor Lewan

 

John Glennon of the Tennessean, citing sources familiar with the situation, reports that the Titans are making “steady progress” towards an agreement with first-round pick OT Taylor Lewan.

Lewan is one of only three rookie who have yet to sign their contracts, but many expect all of them to have agreements in place before the start of training camp.

Titans’ players are set to report for training camp camp next Thursday, so there is still some time get this taken care of.

Lewan’s rookie deal is worth a projected $11,484,998 and includes a signing bonus of $6,672,728, according to OverTheCap.com.

Interestingly enough, John Clayton of ESPN mentioned on Wednesday that the presence of Lewan could make the incumbent LT Michael Roos “trade bait” for a team in need of a veteran tackle.

It is hard to criticize the Titans for selecting Lewan at pick No. 11 in the 2014 NFL Draft, as he was widely projected to be picked earlier.  Still, the pick did raise some eyebrows, as Roos has performed very well at left tackle, and the Titans signed OT Michael Oher this offseason to a four-year, $20 million deal.

We’ll have more regarding Lewan and the Titans as the news is available.
