RB - NYG
Josina Anderson of ESPN reports the Giants have come to terms with Dion Lewis on a one-year contract.
No word yet on the financials. Lewis was cut by the Titans this off-season in a move to save cap space. He won’t get a ton of run behind Saquon Barkley in New York, but he’s a serviceable backup.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Titans informed Dion Lewis that they are releasing him.
This move was expected as the Titans have to try and re-sign both Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry this off-season. Lewis signed a four-year deal with the Titans back in 2018 but hasn’t been as productive as the team originally hoped. Cutting him saves $4 million in cap space.
Dion Lewis caught his only target for six yards on Sunday in Tennessee's AFC Championship loss to the Chiefs by a 35-24 score.
Lewis saw his role on the Titans disappear this season with the emergence of Derrick Henry who became a workhorse back for the team. It would not be surprising if the team decides to move on from Lewis who should find another job in the league as a third-down back if that does happen.
Dion Lewis didn't see the field in Tennessee's Divisional Round win over the Ravens on Saturday by a 28-12 score.
With fellow running back Derrick Henry running over dominant defenses in the playoffs, there has been no room for Lewis. Expect him to be on the bench once again in the AFC Championship as the Titans will be riding Henry as long as they can.
Dion Lewis rushed two times for eight yards in the Titans' Wild Card win over the Patriots by a 20-13 score on Saturday.
Lewis also caught his only target for eight yards on Saturday. The veteran running back continues to take a back seat to Derrick Henry who has been awesome. Look for that trend to continue in the second round against the Ravens as Lewis will only see limited touches.
