Titans Could Release LT Michael Roos?



According to Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com, there is “talk” that the Titans could release veteran LT Michael Roos.

  • McCormick mentions that this is just speculation right now, but adds that it wouldn’t cost them anything in regards to their cap to move on.

This comes just a few hours after the Titans surprisingly took Michigan OT Taylor Lewan with the No. 11 overall pick.

Ian Rapoport reported that the Titans didn’t expect Lewan to still be on the board by the time they were on the clock, so it appears as though they went with the best player on the board.

Tennessee signed RT Michael Oher to a four-year, $20 million contract with $9.5 million guaranteed earlier in the offseason, which essentially leaves Lewan as a role player as of now.

Roos, 31, has a $6.625 million base salary for the 2014 season and is currently finishing out the final year of his six-year, $43 million contract.

There was talk that Roos could be in line for an extension given that he has been a consistent and productive player for them in recent years.

If the Titans were to cut Roos, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Steelers show interest in him given that former Titans HC Mike Munchak is now their offensive coach.

Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 15 offensive tackle in the league last year, so this move would make some sense, especially if Roos’ asking price is reasonable.
