The Facts: Lewis will be wearing a new uniform in 2019. Lewis was set for restricted free agency this offseason, but the Saints did not tender him a contract before the start of the new league year. That decision made Lewis an unrestricted free agent and the Lions announced his addition on Tuesday.
Diehards Line: Lewis is best known for being on the receiving end of Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman‘s unpenalized hit while a pass was coming his way at the end of regulation in the NFC Championship Game. The Lions don’t play the Rams in the 2019 regular season, so he won’t have a chance to renew acquaintances with Robey-Coleman unless the teams meet in the playoffs. Lewis has 20 catches for 252 yards and two touchdowns in 34 career regular season games. He’s also seen time as a returner during his three years in the NFL.
