Titans release longtime LT Taylor Lewan, WR Robert Woods

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans took several steps Wednesday to get below the salary cap, releasing longtime left tackle Taylor Lewan, wide receiver Robert Woods and kicker Randy Bullock.

The Titans were approximately $23.3 million above the salary cap prior to Wednesday’s move. The releases of Lewan ($14.8 million), Woods ($12 million) and Bullock ($2 million) saved the Titans approximately $28.8 million from their cap.

Lewan, a three-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman, was the No. 11 draft pick in 2014. Lewan, 31, entered the final season of the five-year, $80 million contract he signed in 2018.

“I hope I’ve done enough to create something for all Titan fans to be proud of, love you all,” Lewan posted on his private Twitter account.

The nine-year veteran was the longest-serving player on the Titans roster. Lewan had two ACL surgeries in three years, which limited him to playing just 20 games over the last three seasons.

Lewan’s most recent cruciate ligament tear occurred in Week 2 last season against the Buffalo Bills. Now Lewan has to decide whether he wants to continue playing football.

He was released with a failed physical designation.

The Titans traded a 2023 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams last year for Woods, who tore his cruciate ligament in November 2021.

Woods, 30, worked his way back from injury and played in all 17 games last season. Woods, a 10-season veteran, had 53 receptions for 527 yards and two touchdowns in his only season with the Titans.

Bullock, 33, made 17 of 20 field goal attempts and was good on all 28 extra point attempts last season.
