Titans rookie Taylor Lewan placed on probation

Published Add your comment

NFL first round pick Taylor Lewan has certainly failed to live up to lofty predictions placed on him before the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Tennessee Titans picked him up in the first round thinking he was going to be an immediate star that could help the Titans. Instead, the Titans have lost eight straight games and Lewan is in trouble with the law.

According to reports, the talented offensive lineman has been put on probation for a drunken bust-up last year that could have easily landed him in prison.

Taylor Lewan in trouble again 

Lewan's discipline on and off the field came into question during his time at Michigan. He was a player in college that didn't take any prisoners on the field, but off it he is still proving that he's got a lot of learning to do.

The former standout pleaded guilty in October to being drunk and disorderly and was told to pay $1,714.68 in recitation to Ryan Munsch today after allegedly hitting the fan outside a bar back in 2013.

Desire to change 

Lewan says he does not feel the saga represents his character, and he insists he's going to do his utmost to change the mind of those who question his character.

"I don't think that's who I am, and I'm going to do my best to prove people wrong," Lewan said, ESPN reported.

Munsch, on the other hand, feels justice has finally been done after his ordeal since the alleged brutal incident.

Lewan needs to learn 

The Titans have had a testing season to say the least and this news is not what they want to be concerning themselves with. Lewan is such a talented player that this probation will not stop him from becoming the NFL star he could be within the next couple of seasons.

But Lewan will only get to that level if he learns from this experience and curbs his ways. Time to grow up Mr Lewan.
