Taylor Lewan says fans are ‘OVERREACTING’ about Tennessee Titans leaving his belongings in trash bags after releasing him, says franchise treated him ‘great’ in nine years there
A day after sharing a photo of his possessions in garbage bags outside his door, Taylor Lewan downplayed the way his belongings were delivered to him by the Tennessee Titans.
Lewan was released by the Titans last week after nine years with the team, with some fans and former players objecting to the way his items were delivered.

“This looks like a breakup,” said another fan claimed.
But Lewan took to Twitter on Wednesday to let those involved know they were “overreacting” and that he had no issues with the organization.
‘Yes, it’s in garbage bags, who cares? What should it be in, like a horse-drawn wagon? A gold car that they drive and say ‘hey, thanks for the past nine years?” he said.

“Let’s stop overreacting,” he said, after saying he’d asked the team to drop off the gear for him.
“The Titans treated me great, even when they cut me it was a great deal, they let me choose when to get my hair cut.”
Lewan amicably left the Titans after nearly a decade of largely outstanding service to the Nashville franchise.
