The Buffalo Bills traded Chris White, OLB for quarterback Thaddeus Lewis. Not many people have heard about him or know much about him. He was not predicted to make the Lions rosters with three other QBs ahead of him at this point.
Lewis, came into the league last year and played for Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Duke. He signed as a free agent with Detroit this past May.
He is 6’2″ and 200#. He played in 1 game and threw 32 times ad completed 22 of them. He had a 68.8 completion percentage and threw for 204 yards. He had 1 TD and 1 Int in that game.
Most likely, Lewis will be cut at the end of this week for final cuts, but it will depend on where Kolb and Manuel are going into the season and how healthy they are. Lewis is able to run with the ball and is somewhat athletic as well. If he can out show Leinart, he may just get a second chance here in Buffalo. I still believe that Kolb will be gone when he returns from his concussion.
