Taylor Lewan staying away from Titans minicamp

Add Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan to the list of guys ditching minicamp this week while he waits on a new deal.

Titans General Manager Jon Robinson announced that Lewan was staying away.

“As we start the mandatory veteran minicamp, we were informed by the representatives of Taylor Lewan that he would not be attending the camp,” Robinson said, via Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website. “We have had several constructive conversations over the last five to six weeks about his contract status. He is currently under contract, and we are working to keep Taylor as part of this organization for a long time.”

Lewan is scheduled to make $9.341 million this year, the fifth-year option on his rookie deal. But his next deal should be in the neighborhood of (or actually, bigger than) the four-year, $62 million deal Nate Solder got from the Giants in free agency.

With that in mind, the $84,435 in fines he’ll accrue this weekend seems a pittance.

  1. I am glad more NFL players are doing this. The NFL owners have been given the ultimate power when it comes to player contracts and it is time players exact their power. After all, no single NFL fan tunes in to watch NFL owners, we tune in to watch the players.

    Really? Google still works on my computer…..

    Lawan is a great player and teammate, on and off the field as a Titan.

  4. That’s very insensitive of you mr. writer – $84,000 a pittance. That’s money that could be used to help alleviate some the social injustice so many people are apparently suffering from today (at least that’s what I understand from your other over-the-top liberal posts).

    He went to University of Michigan. perhaps educate yourself before you trash

  6. 5th year option strikes again…every player from that draft selected after the 1st round was eligible for free agency…while the first round studs got stuck with a cheap team friendly 5th year option…

  7. If a few owners decide to follow what other owners are doing, that’s called collusion?
    A few players still under contract of their 5th year option all decide to hold out for a new contract, that isn’t collusion?

  8. Contracts seem to mean nothing anymore. They all cry that they want a long term contract for security and then 1 or 2 years in they want to renegotiate. Let’s just go to 1 year contracts for everyone except QBs so that every year can be a total clusterxxxx. The NFL is going down the toilet fast.

  9. Ya’ll leave my boy alone. He isn’t going anywhere, just wanting to secure his future in TN.
