WR - NO - IR
Week 7 Outlook
The Saints have signed Tommylee Lewis.
After trying out with the Vikings, who ultimately passed on him to sign Dede Westbrook, Lewis found his way back to New Orleans. The same team who first signed him as an undrafted rookie out of Northern Illinois back in 2016. He caught 21 passes in his 39 games with the Saints, but did average 9 yards per punt return on 45 attempts. There was speculation the Saints would give him another shot, after the Michael Thomas injury. Regardless, he should not be rostered in any format as of now.
Former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis joined Dede Westbrook for a free agent tryout with the Vikings.
Lewis, who’s infamously known for being on the wrong side of the Saints-Rams ‘no call’, signed with the Saints as an undrafted rookie out of Northern Illinois back in 2016. He caught just 21 passes in his 39 games with the Saints. Though he did average 9 yards per return on 45 attempts as a punt returner. It appears the Vikings have chosen to sign Westbrook over Lewis, but with Michael Thomas injured there is speculation the Saints will soon be calling him. For now, he should not be rostered in any format.
The Panthers waived WR Tommylee Lewis.
Lewis has now bounced around a bit since spending a few seasons within the Saints' organization. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury during training camp.
The Carolina Panthers have signed WR Tommylee Lewis in the wake of the injury to Keith Kirkwood.
Lewis played with both Teddy Bridgewater and offensive coordinator Joe Brady with the Saints in 2018. He hasn’t had much production as a true wideout, catching just 20 passes for 252 yards and two TDs in his career, but he brings some value in the return game.
Tommylee Lewis has been released by the Lions, Tim Twentyman reports.
He played his first three NFL seasons with the Saints from 2016-2018 and finished with just a 20/252/2 receiving line in 34 games for New Orleans. Lewis was not able to land a roster spot with the Lions and will hope to latch on with another team prior to opening kickoff.
