Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan reminded FOX Sports radio host Clay Travis just how wrong he was about him.
Not everyone was a fan of the Tennessee Titans drafting Taylor Lewan, including FOX Sports radio host Clay Travis.
But Lewan isn’t ready to let Travis forget about just how wrong he was.
Lewan tweeted out the reaction to his selection by Travis back in 2014, who was not happy to say the least when the Titans initially picked Lewan.
Lewan also shared this tweet, which was Travis’ actual first reaction to the pick, but we’re going to just link to it because it contains bad language (Warning: NSFW).
Man, that did not age well.
The “electrifying QB” that Travis was talking about is none other than Johnny Manziel, who flamed out rather quickly in the NFL and never made a career for himself amidst a slew of off-the-field issues.
Guess the Titans made the right choice, eh?
As far as the podcast goes, it’s an awesome, funny show, and I highly recommend it whether you’re a Titans fan or not.
Now that would be an interesting segment with Travis, and Lewan should definitely do it—but I’ll leave the final decision to the experts.
Lewan was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft (No. 11 overall) and has since developed into one of the best left tackles in the game. He’s also been named to a Pro Bowl in each of the last three seasons.
Not only that, but he’s become the Dad of Titans fans everywhere and a beloved player in Nashville sports. That pick could not have worked out more for the Titans.
Lewan is coming off a 2018 campaign in which he was ranked as the No. 15 tackle in the NFL by Pro Football Focus. Lewan signed an extension with the Titans last year, netting him a five-year, $80 million deal ($50 million guaranteed).
He’s worth every penny.
