Browns Sign Thad Lewis

After signing Josh McCown earlier in the offseason, the Browns have added another veteran quarterback to their roster, according to Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, who reports (via Twitter) that the team has signed Thad Lewis to a one-year contract.

Lewis finished the 2014 campaign in Houston but was cut by the Texans earlier this week as the team revamped its quarterback depth chart, re-adding Ryan Mallett, signing Brian Hoyer, and trading Ryan Fitzpatrick and Case Keenum. Undrafted out of Duke in 2010, Lewis has bounced around the league, having spent time with the Bills, Rams, and Lions in addition to a previous stint in Cleveland. The 30-year-old started five games for Buffalo in 2013, leading the team to a 2-3 record in those games.

For the Browns, Lewis will provide camp depth, but looks like a long shot to earn a spot on the team’s regular season roster barring an injury to McCown, Johnny Manziel, or Connor Shaw.

    Saw this guy play a couple of years ago preseason, and he looked pretty good and considering the last 10+ years of dreadful QB play …… and compared to shaw, manziel, and whoever else the garbage heap has to offer…..why not?
