Vikings Sign LB Travis Lewis

THURSDAY, 6:46pm: Lewis’ pact with the Vikings is official, according to the team’s website.

WEDNESDAY, 12:16pm: The Vikings have agreed to terms with former Lions linebacker Travis Lewis, reports Peter Schrager of FOX Sports (Twitter link).

Lewis, 28, has been with Detroit since 2012, when he entered the league as a seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma. He actually started four games last season, but for the most part he’s been a backup, appearing in 42 contests during his four-year career. Lewis was a key member of the Lions’ special teams unit, playing on more than 70% of Detroit’s ST snaps — that’s likely the role he’ll play in Minnesota.

Like all free agents, Lewis can’t officially sign his new deal until 3pm CT today.
