From the Super Bowl: Titans linebacker Taylor Lewan is debating whether he wants to continue playing football.

Taylor Lewan is now living his best life, according to Austin.
Lewan is there for the Super Bowl, which is taking place close to his boyhood home. Together with his best friend, he produces the popular podcast Bussin’ With The Boys. Lewan and Will Compton, a former Titans teammate, have been having fun and doing interviews with prominent people all week.

When this week is through, Lewan will be able to return home and have an even better experience.
Listen, Lewan said, “I have a great life, and I would compare it to anybody else’s.” “My wife is really great; she tolerates my BS every day and still loves me. She really enjoys the silliness.
And then there are my two children. My five-year-old is the sweetest thing in the world and the epitome of someone who “loves unicorns, rainbows, and puppies,” but my two-year-old is a full firecracker who will get what she wants when she wants it and how she wants it. They all think highly of me. I mean, it is fantastic. I’m coping well. I don’t have to go to work. Knowing where I came from in my life when I was younger gives me a pleasant sensation. It’s just the truth of where I am at 31 years old; that isn’t me pumping my tyres.
Yes, he did say that.
Lewan, who was chosen by the club in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2014, is aware that he is not obligated to keep playing football if he so chooses. Right now in his life, he could quit his work and yet be happy. He has accomplished a lot on the field and earned enough money.
Lewan is now battling with himself regarding his future.
Does he say goodbye to the game? Or does he choose to continue with a career that has already included three trips to the Pro Bowl and 106 career starts but hasn’t yet allowed him to fulfil his ultimate goal of playing in a Super Bowl?
Lewan has said on his podcast that he expects to be released by the Titans shortly. The enormous compensation he will get, the fact that he has had two ACL procedures in the previous three seasons, and the fact that he has only played in 20 games total are all factors that he is aware of. He is also aware of the benefits.
Lewan anticipated that the Tennessee Titans will release him “in the next couple of weeks.” “I really, fully believe that.
The next step requires me to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of playing football vs not, which is a situation I have never encountered in my whole life.
Lewan could have to choose between the following choices if it really happens: Immediately resign. represent an alternative group. might even go back to the Titans and take a pay cut.
Lewan isn’t really certain of his current goals.
In five years, I won’t be able to tell you, “You know what dude? I’m going to play ball again,” Lewan said. I won’t be a Brett Favre anymore after this chapter is through. I don’t fall into the category of retirees who later re-retire.
I’m not going to do that. I’m going to make a decision and then carry it through. In any event, I’m happy and think it’s the most gorgeous present someone has ever given me. Whatever option I choose, I will undoubtedly be satisfied and delighted with it. As a result, I am quite fortunate.
Lewan said he has been working on his knee and has made tremendous progress. Lewan had surgery to repair an ACL rupture after leaving the field during the team’s Week 2 game against Buffalo last season. He has lost some weight and feels great.
He said his only encounters with both the new general manager Ran Carthon and head coach Mike Vrabel were pleasant ones in a interview. Lewan expressed his happiness with Tim Kelly’s appointment as offensive coordinator and commended Jason Houghtaling, the new offensive line coach, as a role model that any offensive lineman would enjoy having as a mentor.
Lewan is aware that the situation is complicated by his contract. He indicated that he would be willing to talk to you about it.
“My agreement is definitely $14 million for the following year,” Lewan said. ” How do you feel in your knee? If they return and say, “If you want to come back, here is the number we’ll bring you back at,” it will likely come up in conversation. Do you want to take part? I get along very well with Mike. Mike and I converse and text back and forth, and he often makes fun of Will and I in a group setting. It’s an amazing relationship. Thus, there will be a lot of candour and he will tell me what he thinks and feels; if he thinks that’s good for kids, then there should surely be a conversation. If I were to play again, the place I’ve been for the previous nine years would be my favourite. Being a loyal guy, I would feel uncomfortable donning another uniform.
At some point, a conversation will need to take place.
Lewan will ultimately have to make a decision.
At this point, he is unclear of how things will pan out.
Lewan did say that, if he were to continue playing football, he wouldn’t be doing it with a 50, 60, 70, 80, or 90 percent effort level.
He goes all in.
But he must decide now whether to remain or go.
Today at the Super Bowl, he has a packed itinerary.
Lewan said, “I would never step foot on a football pitch and not be 100% in, because a lot of things happen – you appear like an idiot, because you don’t play correctly, and you get hurt.” “I’ll give it my all if I’m going to play football. There won’t be a fallback strategy. I’ll keep doing Bussin’, which is me spending an hour on a bus and tweeting about it once a week.
The Twitch video game streaming that these guys do is precisely the same. I’m just doing it for the podcast. However, if I decide to play football again in the 2023 season, there won’t be a half in/half out since that is not how a competitive sport should be played at the greatest level. Not at all. You will never be able to get the best goods since it is not just inaccurate but also false. My career has been incredible; you can point out some of the drawbacks, but buddy, nine seasons with the same team, three Pro Bowl choices, aiding a team go from 2-14 to six straight winning seasons, and being a part of it, being a part of a transition in a culture, have all been phenomenal.
No matter whether it was for the Titans or another team, I would never come back to play football and claim that I was just doing it for the money. I have a lot of pride in my profession. It is against who I am as a person, thus I can’t do it. There are certain males I am aware of who can and do. It’s great that you people are doing the necessary action, but I won’t approach the situation that way. I must now make a number of decisions, which I will go about with my family in the next weeks.
