    Tackle Taylor Lewan spent the weekend taking the first steps of his professional career in Nashville at the Titans’ rookie minicamp, but he hasn’t totally cut all ties to his college days.

    WDIV reports Lewan will be arraigned in an Ann Arbor, Michigan courtroom on Monday on one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery related to an altercation with fans of Ohio State after last year’s game between the Buckeyes and Lewan’s Michigan Wolverines. Lewan has said that he wasn’t in a fight and that he was trying to break up a scuffle involving other people, but the hearing will still go on on Monday.

    Assuming Lewan can clear up everything back in his college town, he’ll be available to return to the Titans for the rest of the offseason. We got some idea of how the Titans might start using him over the weekend as Lewan saw time at both left and right tackle during minicamp drills. Lewan said there were some “growing pains” involved with playing right tackle after spending his career thus far on the left side, but that he’s open to whatever the Titans need.

    “We’ve got some great coaches willing to help me out. I definitely feel more comfortable at left tackle, but like I said when I got drafted, I’ll play wherever,” Lewan said, via the Tennessean.

    With Michael Roos returning at left tackle and Michael Oher signed as a free agent for the right side, the Titans have a variety of ways they could go at tackle come the regular season. Lewan could wind up a starter on either side or as a reserve waiting to take over for Roos, all of which are better places to find yourself than on the wrong end of assault charges.

    Still hate this pick, but anyone that assaults Buckeye fans does get a bit more credit by default.

    I dont like this case, to be honest


    If a 6'8, 300 pound man hits me, Id think it would leave a mark. If it doenst, I dont think id want him as my LT...


    So he "may" have gotten into a fight. I could really care less.

    Because READING IS HARD!!!!!!!!



    Lewan, appearing in Michigan's 15th district court, requested the adjournment to continue to investigate the report.
