TicketsBar2NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- It's great that Taylor Lewan isn't holding out, but I don't buy that if he did he would have qualified as less of a team guy.

I do buy that accountability from the general manager is a great example for the team that should trickle down and permeate everything.IMG 2313

Jon Robinson stepped to the microphone ahead of Mike Vrabel, Brian Orakpo, Ben Jones, Kevin Byard and Derrick Henry to comment on Lewan and Kevin Dodd.

And what he said about Dodd, the 33rd pick in the 2016 draft, should echo throughout the franchise.

"I’ll say this about Kevin: He’s a good young man, he’s a talented young man," Robinson said. "I take full responsibility for that one. I’ve got to do a better job scouting moving forward."

Accountability from the guy running the team is a beautiful thing. No one can ever try to make excuses or blame the front office for anything and claim the accountability expected of them doesn't apply upstairs.

Brian Orakpo loved his GM's stance.

"J-Rob knows, I mean he drafted Dodd," he said. "He doesn’t want that on his resume, I wouldn’t if I was a GM. I mean so you want to make sure it works. Obviously, it didn’t work and that happens. Doesn’t take away from who Dodd is as a person it just didn’t work out”

See and hear Robinson and Orakpo in bigger context below.
