Titans LT Michael Roos announced his retirement from the NFL.
The 41st pick in the 2005 draft, Roos played in the league ten seasons, starting 148 games and earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2008. He never received many accolades, but Roos was a steady, reliable, above-average blindside protector. Instead of heading to the open market as a free agent, Roos is retiring as a member of the only team he's ever known. It was doubtful the Titans would have re-signed Roos had he kept playing. 2014 first-round pick Taylor Lewan is now locked in at left tackle. Right tackle remains a need.

Titans LT Michael Roos is considering retirement.

"That's a very strong consideration for (me)," Roos said. "It has been 10 years and it's been a lot of fun, but mentally it starts taking a drain on you sometime so we'll see." Going on 33, Roos is recovering from a "variation" of microfracture surgery on his right knee. He was placed on injured reserve in October. Roos was still playing at a high level before going down, but the Titans already have his replacement on the roster in 2014 first-rounder Taylor Lewan. Roos is headed to the open market.

Titans placed LT Michael Roos (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Roos is scheduled to undergo knee surgery next week. An impending free agent, he'll head into the offseason with injury concerns. Roos was PFF's No. 11 left tackle prior to going down.

Titans LT Michael Roos' upcoming right knee surgery will end his season.

Specifics of the injury aren't known. Roos, 32, has missed just one game in his NFL career to date. The Titans' first-round pick of Taylor Lewan doesn't look quite as bad now, although they are still trotting out a completely-ineffective Michael Oher at right tackle on a weekly basis. An impending free agent, Roos has almost certainly played his final snap in Nashville. He was having an excellent season before going down, earning positive marks as both a run and pass blocker in Pro Football Focus' grades.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Titans LT Michael Roos needs knee surgery and will miss an "undetermined" amount of time.

Roos is likely undergoing a scope. That would sideline him 3-4 weeks. No. 11 overall pick Taylor Lewan will slide in at left tackle while Roos is sidelined.

The Nashville Tennessean named LT Michael Roos the "offseason star" among the Titans' offensive line.

Top beat writer Jim Wyatt fully expects Roos to be protecting Jake Locker's blind side come Week 1, with the real competition taking place on the right side of the line between Michael Oher and Taylor Lewan. If Oher plays like he did in Baltimore, Lewan should have no trouble beating him out talent-wise. However, GM Ruston Webster laughably gave Oher $9.5 million guaranteed in March. Oher is penciled in as the starter, but keep the eraser within reach.

ESPN's John Clayton believes the Titans could make LT Michael Roos "trade bait" if first-round rookie Taylor Lewan proves ready to start right away.

Roos, 32 in October, is entering the final year of his deal and will count $6.625 million against the cap. While that's a big chunk of change to take on, Roos has missed just one start since 2005 and is still playing at a high level. He was a top-three tackle at PFF in 2012 before grading out in the top-16 last season while excelling as a run blocker. The Titans would do well to fetch a mid-rounder.

Titans LT Michael Roos anticipates spending "one more year" with the team.

The Titans used the No. 11 pick on Taylor Lewan, who is Roos' heir apparent at left tackle. Roos will stay in the blindside for 2014, and hit free agency next March. Michael Oher and Lewan are battling to start at right tackle. Roos is entering his age-32 campaign. He's still playing at a high enough level to generate big 2015 free agent interest, assuming there's no 2014 fall off.

Following the selection of OT Taylor Lewan at No. 11 overall, reports there's some "talk" the Titans could "move" LT Michael Roos.

Roos is in the final year of his deal and is owed a $6.625 million base salary, all of which the Titans could get out from under by releasing him. He's missed just one start since his 2005 rookie season and has been an above-average left tackle for years. Cutting Roos and replacing him with Lewan would only make sense financially. Why the Titans handed RT Michael Oher $9.5 million guaranteed in March is the real question that needs to be asked.

The Nashville Tennessean believes the Titans should look to extend LT Michael Roos' contract this offseason.

Roos, 31, is entering the final year of a six-year, $43 million deal and is set to earn a $6.625 million base salary. He's missed just one start since being the 41st pick in the 2005 draft out of Eastern Washington. Pro Football Focus graded Roos out as its No. 12 left tackle in 2013. He's been an anchor in Tennessee.

Titans LT Michael Roos (appendectomy) has been ruled out for Week 8 against Indianapolis.

He'll be replaced by usual swing tackle Mike Otto. Roos' absence could bit the Titans this Sunday because Otto will most often match up with Colts RE/OLB Dwight Freeney. Freeney is Indianapolis' only real pass rusher with Robert Mathis still out due to a knee injury.

Titans LT Michael Roos is day-to-day after having his appendix removed Monday.

Roos may be "day-to-day," but it will be extremely tough for him to suit up just six days after emergency surgery, even for a player who hasn't missed a game since 2005. Roos has been exceptional on the blindside during his age-30 season. Mike Otto will get the start if Roos can't go against the Colts.

The Titans have determined that LT Michael Roos' knee injury is not significant.

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed "no need" for further testing on the knee. The injury is being called a "mild strain," and Roos should resume practicing by the end of this week. There's no doubt about his status for Week 1.

Michael Roos left in the second quarter of Saturday's preseason game against the Panthers with a right knee strain.

Coach Jeff Fisher told reporters that Roos would have finished the game had it been the regular season. One of the NFL's best, Roos should be ready to go Week 1.

Titans LT Michael Roos left "ahead of schedule" Saturday with a "mild right knee strain."

The Titans better hope that's all it is because Roos is one of the most dominant tackles in the NFL. We should have an update on his status by Sunday or Monday.
