His position coach said Tennessee Titans incumbent left tackle Michael Roos showed up to work Monday and did his job just like always.

We haven't heard from Roos since the Titans spent their first-round pick, No. 11 overall, on Taylor Lewan, a player who will take Roos' spot in 2015 at the latest.

I texted Roos last week after the pick seeking his reaction but was not surprised he didn't write back. He'll talk when he next crosses paths with the media and I expect he'll deliver the most professional response possible.

He's carried himself that way since the Titans picked him in the second round out of Eastern Washington in the 2005 draft, 41st overall.

New Titans offensive line coach Bob Bostad said he talked to Roos about what the Titans were doing as they did it.

"I did talk to him because I believe that's what you do," Bostad told us on The Midday 180 in Nashville. "He was a total pro. And then I think really the proof is in the pudding when a guy comes to work like he did [Monday] morning and was the same guy he was the week before the draft, so hard working and all ears and all eyes and totally into it."

Roos played a season on the right before becoming the Titans' left tackle. Perhaps Lewan will do the same. The Titans have to sort through those two and free-agent addition right tackle Michael Oher in training camp.
