The Tennessee Titans and rookie first round draft pick Taylor Lewan agreed to terms on a contract today that will have Lewan in camp on time when the team reports on Friday, July 25.
The deal announced today is for four year, with a team option for the fifth year and is reported to be in the $11 million dollar range.
Lewan, the no. 11 overall pick out of the University of Michigan is expected to compete with veterans Michale Roos and Michael Oher for a starting spot at one of the tackle positions, though it is more likely that Lewan will start the season as a back-up.With the 2011 collective bargaining agreement, rookie contracts have been slotted which has helped teams avoid rookie holdout, though the Titans first round pick in 2013, offensive guard Chance Warmack did miss the first four practices of his rookie camp last season before his contract was completed.
Lewan was the final first round selection to agree to terms.
