Titans LT Taylor Lewan is skipping the team's mandatory minicamp.
The Titans announced the holdout themselves. Set to earn $9.34 million in the final year of his deal, Lewan is looking for a long-term extension which will make him the highest-paid tackle in the league, a mark currently held by Giants LT Nate Solder's four-year, $62 million contract. GM Jon Robinson said the Titans are "working to keep Taylor as part of this organization for a long time." Jun 12 - 12:52 PM

Contract-year LT Taylor Lewan said he hopes to become the league’s highest-paid left tackle.

New Giants LT Nate Solder currently holds that distinction after landing a four-year, $62 million deal with $35 million guaranteed in March. Lewan is arguably better and is younger than Solder at 26. As the salary cap rises each year, nobody at any one position holds the "highest paid" title for long. Lewan will earn over $9 million in 2018 if he isn't extended ahead of Week 1.

Contract-year LT Taylor Lewan hasn't had "any substantial talks" with the Titans.

Lewan doesn't plan to hold out despite the lack of progress. He's open to an in-season deal if he's not extended before training camp. With Nate Solder landing a four-year, $62 million contract from the Giants, Lewan should push for $15 million annually.

CBS Sports' Joel Corry believes Titans contract-year LT Taylor Lewan will command more than $13 million on his next deal.

Trent Williams currently leads the market in guarantees ($41.25 million) while Russell Okung is best in average salary ($13.25 million). Corry, a former agent, believes the Titans will likely need to top both numbers to get something done with the 2014 first-round pick. Lewan is set to earn $9.341 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (back) is expected to play in Week 15 against the 49ers.

Lewan was injured in the first half of last week's loss. He'll start Sunday, but likely won't be 100 percent. Lewan has missed just one game the last three seasons.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan said he is dealing with back spasms.

Lewan said he woke up with a sore and tight back before being forced from Sunday's game in the second quarter. He does not anticipate it being a long-term issue, but he will get an MRI. Dennis Kelly replaced him at left tackle on Sunday.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan exited Week 14 against the Cardinals with a back injury.

Lewan was able to stay in a few plays after seemingly tweaking his back, but he was forced to the locker room in the second quarter. He was ruled out after the half. Dennis Kelly replaced him at left tackle.

Titans exercised LT Taylor Lewan's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The move was a formality, as Lewan has emerged as one of the league's best young left tackles. The sides will surely talk about a long-term extension this summer. Locking Lewan up now would free 2018 up for Marcus Mariota long-term talks.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (knee) is active for Week 12.

Lewan was fully expected to play despite missing practice time this week. He wasn't listed on the final injury report but will likely be at less than 100 percent. The Titans inactives are WR Tre McBride, S Daimion Stafford, RB David Fluellen, OG Sebastian Tretola, TE Phillip Supernaw, OLB Kevin Dodd, and DL Angelo Blackson.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (knee) will play Week 12 against the Bears.

Lewan was injured in Week 11 but won't miss Sunday. He's PFF's No. 6 tackle.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 12:56:00 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he's "holding out hope" LT Taylor Lewan (knee) can play Sunday.

Lewan is day to day with a sprained knee. He's not off to a good start after missing Wednesday's practice, but there's a chance he plays at less than 100 percent this week. Dennis Kelly would replace Lewan at left tackle if he's held out.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan is dealing with a sprained knee.

Lewan told reporters he heard a "pop" in the knee. He was seen Monday walking around without a major limp, and the Titans are calling Lewan day to day. As the Titans have a Week 13 bye, it would be ideal if they could hold Lewan out for Week 12 at Chicago. It is still an important game, however. If Lewan receives medical clearance from team doctors, he will very likely play this week.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan will undergo an MRI on his left knee.

"We're checking out his knee. We don't know how serious it is," coach Mike Mularkey said. Lewan went down on the final drive of the fourth quarter, but walked off on his own and never went to the locker room. There should be an update on Lewan's status no later than Monday.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan left Week 11 with a knee injury.

The injured occurred late in the fourth quarter. Lewan was able to walk off, but was replaced with Dennis Kelly.

Taylor Lewan is still penciled in as the Titans' starting left tackle.

The Titans traded up to No. 8 in the draft, where they were fully expected to select Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil. Instead, they went with Michigan State's Jack Conklin, who the Titans will likely start at right tackle. Lewan said he wouldn't have been comfortable playing on the right side. "I know I’m not a right tackle," he said. "I know my worth as a player, and I know that I’m a left tackle." Conklin will have to adjust after starting 35 college games at left tackle compared to only three on the right side.
