Jags Sign Specialist
This past week the Jaguars management team has been one of the busiest teams in the league by picking up several unrestricted free agents, including defensive end Hugh Douglas, fullback Mark Edwards, wide receiver Donald Hayes, and linebackers Keith Mitchell and Mike Peterson. Yesterday, the Jaguars continued their shopping spree by picking up the former Houston Texan's return-specialist Jermaine Lewis.
According to a league source, the seven-year pro out of Maryland was signed by the Jaguars to a three year contract. Lewis visited with and had several offers from teams, including the Ravens, Bengals, Dolphins, Redskins, before deciding on the Jaguars.
The 5-foot-7 and 170 pound returner/wide receiver with sub 4.4 40-yard speed was cut by Houston in February where he only caught two passes the entire season.
Prior to Houston he spent seasons in Baltimore where he caught 136 passes for 1,984 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Lewis has been one of the better returners in recent NFL history, including playing a key role in the Ravens Super Bowl run in 2000. Two seasons ago, he led the league In return yards.
Lewis will focus on special teams only with the Jaguars.
