NASHVILLE, Tennessee — The Tennessee Titans made several moves to join the salary cap on Wednesday, releasing long left tackle Taylor Lewan, wide receiver Robert Woods and kicker Randy Bullock.

The Giants were over the salary cap by $23.3 million prior to Wednesday’s moves. By releasing Lewan ($14.8 million), Woods ($12 million) and Bullock ($2 million), the Giants saved nearly $28.8 million against their cap.

A three-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman, Lewan was the 11th pick in the 2014 draft. Levan, 31, was entering the final season of a five-year, $80 million contract he signed in 2018.

“I hope I did enough to create something that all of my giants fans can be proud of, I love you all,” Lewan Posted on his personal Twitter account.

The nine-year-old veteran was the longest-serving player on the Titans’ roster. Lewan underwent two anterior cruciate ligament surgeries in three years, which limited him to playing in just 20 matches over the past three seasons.

Lewan’s final ACL tear occurred last season in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. Now Levan has to find out if he wants to continue playing football.

He was released with a failed physical rating.

The Titans traded a sixth-round pick in 2023 with the Los Angeles Rams last year with Woods, who was coming off an ACL tear in November 2021.

Woods, 30, made his way back from injury and played in all 17 matches last season. A 10-season veteran, Woods posted 53 receptions for 527 yards and two touchdowns in his only season with the Titans.
